Hideously overcrowded, shops all selling the same "duty free" goods. Wifi charged for and swamped.

Drove around the island. Stopped by the airport, Great bay beach, some other beach and near the mall on the French side. Not bad for $25.

My group of 6 grabbed a taxi at the port line to MAHO one way, we watched some planes then Mario our driver took us to Mullet Bay for 3 dollars each to relax on that beach (a short drive) and enjoy Daleos ribs on the beach. He agreed to meet us at an agreed time to return to the ship. There are other drivers there if needed. Highly recommend this, we could still watch planes from Mullet but it is a better beach with more room, chaises, calm water, sandy bottom. Maho is more of a zoo!! But I am glad we saw Maho and watched some planes come in. I highly recommend doing this on your own!! Bring cash. Read Less

Just walked to town to keep busy. If you leave the port area , be sure to look across the street at the goats.

nice and marvelous beach area, huge yachts with helicopters next to the port. However: a lot of shops in the harbor area where they offer diamonds like in the whole Caribbean it seams.

Water taxi to Great Bay beach. $7 pp for all day. $20 umbrella & 2 chairs. White sand beach, but had a small drop off - actually helped a couple people with mobility issues in and out of water. Water not as crystal clear as St Croix or St Kitts, but very nice (better then east coast Atlantic ;-) Read Less

Been already to St Martin and we didn't like it in particular so we decided just to go for the beach. Knowing all beaches are crowded in cruise day we chose to stay at Great Bay but we were even worse disappointed. Only advantage this beach is still close to walk to from cruise terminal (20-25 min walk to get there) and also the water is really nice for swimming. The problem I had was with the chair sellers who first of all occupy every single inch of this beach even if the beach is public place and they have really a bothering attitude. We had to walk the full sand stripe to get a small place only with sand to enjoy a bit of calm. WE were not planning to drink all day on a cramped beach chair so that was the only option. For after noon we preferred to pay the ferry that leave from the cruise terminal directly and gets you to the north side of this beach so in way we got less bothering and faster to the sand only only place. What a shame this attitude and waste of the beach space. Also the touristic part of the city is mostly shopping and bars focused, little of the historical site. We would not chose this island if not in our itinerary already. Read Less

We walked over to Great Bay beach, found a bar and talked with passengers from the new HA Nieuw Statendam. Corona bottles were only $2 at several nice bars.

On our own, we hired a driver to take us around the island. Enjoyed it. $35 p/p we were gone 3.5 hrs.

Unfortunately I was sick this day and only strolled out to the shops. I did hear that there is still a lot of work to be done since the hurricanes hit.
