Spend a Cruise Port Day in St. Maarten

By WAVEJourney

Q: What is the best way to spend a cruise port day visiting St. Maarten in the Caribbean?

A: When your ship has a day in St. Maarten there’s always plenty to do, but it’s up to you if you want to spend it being active or relax on a beach. Here are some of the most popular ideas (although, the list is endless):

  • Relax at a beach – Maho (at the end of the airport runway), Orient Bay, and Mullet Bay are some of the best beaches
  • Take a boat tour – Captain Bob Boat Tours is one of the top recommendations
  • Go snorkeling with Tiki Hut Adventure
  • Visit the Guavaberry Hut and try a guavaberry colada
  • Walk across the footbridge between the French and Dutch sides and visit both
  • Shopping is definitely a favorite activity for cruise visitors – Mr. Tablecloth has wonderful tablecloths – and there are plenty of duty-free shops along Front Street
