French & Dutch Island Discovery

French & Dutch Island Discovery

Discover 2 countries on one island during this unusual island excursion.

Depart Marigot port heading towards Paradise Peak, the highest elevation on the island, then pass Grand Case, the culinary capital of the Caribbean, and continue past Orient Beach to Paradise Lookout Point for a view of famous Orient Beach and the island of St. Barth with an opportunity to take some photos. Next you will drive through Quartier d’Orleans, also known as French Quarter and will cross the International Border to the Dutch side of the island.

Upon arrival in Philipsburg, capital of the Dutch side, you have approximately 1 hour of free time to do some shopping on well-known Front Street or stroll along the Boardwalk to find many restaurants, bars and even ice cream parlors. There is also a fantastic view of the cruise ships at the Dr. A.C. Wathey Cruise & Cargo Facility, the largest port on the island. The journey continues to the Cay Hill Lookout Point, for views and a photo stop of Simpson Bay Lagoon, the largest land enclosed lagoon in the Caribbean, as well as of Simpson Bay Beach and all the way to Princess Juliana International Airport. At the airport you will experience the amazing spectacle of planes landing right overhead while enjoying a refreshing local favorite the Guavaberry Colada. Guavaberry rum is a legendary folk liqueur of St. Maarten/St. Martin and is an integral part of local culture and tradition. It is made from fine oak aged rum, sugar cane, and wild local Guavaberries – not to be mistaken with guavas. Guavaberries are rare and can only be found high in the hills in the center of the island as a bright orange or as a red/black fruit. After this fun experience you will return to the port in Margot and your yacht.
