Another tour that promises an unforgettable experience in Saint. Martin. Your tour guide will take you on an exploration adventure to places such as Oyster Pond, Orient Beach Marigot the French capital and of course Maho Beach to view for extreme plane spotting. This unique proximity of low flying airliners at Maho Beach is very popular with plane spotters and plane watchers. One of the few places in the world where you can actually watch planes land and take-off directly in their flight path. Experience options of shopping, dining at the fine creole restaurant in Marigot, the French side of the island or simply browsing through the array of French pastries and delicatessens at the local market. Enjoy the breath taking views at Simpson Bay, experience the wonderful view of the borders that separates the Dutch and the French side. Ultimately we all love a nice stop at Orient Beach, with a lot of fun under the sun for family and friends with enough beach bars and restaurant to choose from. Please see our tour details for tour itinerary for more info.
