French & Dutch Island Discovery

French & Dutch Island Discovery

Discover both international sides of the island on this comprehensive island exploration that includes a stop for a refreshment while watching planes land at the Princess Juliana International Airport.

Depart Philipsburg port heading towards Coralita Lookout Point on the Atlantic Ocean side of the island and take in a bird’s eye view of St. Barth. Continue to world famous Orient Bay, the longest strip of pristine sandy beach and amazing eateries on the island. Move on to Grand Case, a quaint fishing village and the Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean; boasting the very best restaurants and service in the area. You will pass, the highest elevation on the island, Paradise Peak and carry on to Marigot, the capital of French St. Martin. Here you will have 45 minutes of free time to shop at the local market and sample some of the amazing French pastries at the bakery. Next you will cross the International Border to the Dutch side of the island.

The coach will cross over the causeway bridge and head to Maho and Sunset Beach Bar. 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 head to Philipsburg, the capital of the Dutch side, via Simpson Bay and Cay Hill Lookout Point, for views and an opportunity to take some photos. You will be dropped off at the port where you have some 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, and return to the yacht when you are ready.
