There is something for everyone to see and do on this island that’s just 37 square miles.

Soak up the sun on a sandy beach or tackle a water sport and get your adrenaline flowing. Rent a sailboat, catamaran, motor craft or mega-yacht and take the helm for a day. You can even strap on a jet pack and soar high above the ocean blue.

The waters and coral reefs surrounding St. Maarten/St. Martin offer myriad opportunities to meet and greet the local sea life. All waters are designated as protected marine parks and offer excellent opportunities for divers to discover a colorful underwater world of reefs teeming with marine life and sunken ships. Not certified? Not to worry. There’s a lot to see snorkeling!

When in the shopping capital of the Caribbean, do not forget to take an afternoon off for shopping.

Take a moment of relaxation in our health and wellness spas.

In the middle of a multinational archipelago, there is plenty islands within sight to explore. Spend a day trip to neighboring islands like Statia, Saba and St. Barths, or simply unwind on a relaxing, romantic sunset cruise.

If you’re more of a landlubber, don’t despair. You can ride a bike, go on a hike or canter through the surf on the back of a noble steed. Sign up for an off-road ATV or Jeep safari and savor the island’s stunning scenery: panoramic ocean vistas, dramatic ochre-colored cliffs and a rainforest where you can plunge through the canopy on the world’s steepest zip line.

History buffs will want to visit Fort Amsterdam or Fort Louis, peruse the artifacts at the Fruits de Mer or St. Maarten Heritage Museum. After a day like this, when the sun sets, pick your restaurant and prepare for a vibrant nightlife!

For full enjoyment of what St Maarten has to offer, there is plenty to do for those who want to explore the routes off the beaten track. Mix it with culture, enjoying the arts and visiting  monuments for a true submersion in St Maarten Culture!

When in doubt with our famous offer of activities, let yourself be advised by those who know their island best; the locals!

Only one day to spend on St Maarten by cruise or in transit? We have thought about how to spend your day!
