Description

Breathtaking views, charming picturesque corners and a heavenly beach are the attractions of a marvellous excursion that leads us to discover what is best in St. Martin with a tour of the most charming locations before an unforgettable break by the blue Caribbean sea: a dreamy setting to enjoy a perfect Creole lunch and relax barefoot in the sand.



What we will see
  • Panoramic tour of the island
  • Philipsburg and Great Salt Pond
  • Border monument
  • Grand Case fishing village and city of Marigot
  • Free time in Marigot’s city centre
  • Barbecue lunch
  • Relaxation on a heavenly beach
  • Unlimited rum and fruit punch
  • Optional stop in Philipsburg's city centre


What we will do
  • We leave the port on our air-conditioned coach and set off on a panoramic tour of the island crossing the border that separates the Dutch and French territories.
  • We drive through the city of Philipsburg, the colourful Dutch capital of St. Martin with its streets flanked with palm trees and brightly-coloured houses, and pass by the Great Salt Pond north of Philipsburg surrounded by the city centre and suburbs.
  • We thus reach the monument which denotes the border between the two dominions, modified 16 times between 1816 and 1948!
  • We continue towards Grand Case, a characteristic fishing village which has become famous as the paradise of gourmands and reach the city of Marigot, French capital of the island.
  • We go on a pleasant one-hour stroll in the city centre as we take in the typically European atmosphere with a charming Caribbean touch among lovely cafés and fashionable boutiques.
  • The time has come to relax: we enjoy three hours of pleasant idleness on a marvellous beach which is one of the best in the island.
  • We also enjoy a delicious lunch featuring ribs, chicken and fish cooked on the barbecue according to the Creole tradition served with rice, beans and a fresh salad as well as with a rum or fruit punch.
  • We stretch lazily on our lounger and have plenty of time to enjoy the beach as we please: we can take a dip in the blue sea, lounge lazily in the sun to top up our tans or go for a stroll on the shore to take in the enchanting Caribbean views.
  • We have unlimited access to the rum and fruit punch to quench our thirst and toast to our time here!
  • The time has come to go back to reality... but the fun is not over yet: on our way back, we can choose to stop in Philipsburg’s city centre and return to the ship on our own.
