A "MUST SEE & EXPERIENCE" : the spectacular overhead jet landings at popular Airport Beach !

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Rotary Lookout Point, rue de Coralita Collectivity of Saint Martin Guadeloupe, 97150 St Martin / St Maarten

Enjoy the peaceful scenery at this section of French St. Martin's extensive Nature Reserve. The shallow Lucas Bay/Coralita waters are perfect to cool off your traveling feet. This is not a venue for swimming.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Oyster Pond St Martin / St Maarten

This community is located on your route from the Lucas Bay/Coralita area back to Philipsburg. This part French/part Dutch territory is mainly a residential area, with a few smaller guest accommodations, and a marina. From the hill side you're overlooking 2 beach front resorts : one along the Oyster Bay coast and one in neighboring Dawn Beach. A simple sign on the side of the road is the only border marker. No border formalities !

Stop At: Great Bay Beach, Philipsburg St Martin / St Maarten

The 3 hours of touring the island by Jeep is followed by a full hour of beach time in beautiful Great Bay, within view of your ship. 3/4 of this 2-mile-long beach is lined with the Boardwalk. This section of the beach tends to be livelier, with a multitude of beach bars, restaurants and boutiques. The other (unpaved) stretch is quiet and practically undeveloped. Awesome shopping opportunities are nearby, in Front Street, Back Street, and Old Street. You'll also find many great photo ops within walking distance, e.g. the authentic Creole homes with their typical Gingerbread trims.

Response from Cleveland B, Manager at 4x4 Jeep "Island Loop & Beach" Safari : the Absolute Best of St Maarten

Your recommendation means a lot to us, Matthew ! Indeed, Latch always has a wealth of island knowledge to share with his guests. Communication between Jeeps runs via the handheld VHF radio's, and the various 15-20 min. stops give ample opportunity for more Q&A.

Fantastic tour with a great tour guide. Personalized tour- not commercial at all. You go around both sides of the island and stop for plenty of experiences. Picked up right at cruise terminal and offers shuttle back. Vehicles new and all clean. Highly recommend.

Latch was a great guide. If you want to see a little of the WHOLE island it’s a great trip. Jeeps are clean, tops are on, and have AC. Other Jeeps we saw had the tops off and it was a really hot day. We highly recommend Latch and the trip. Feed iguanas, French bakery stop,
