Very clean port. Easy to find your way to taxi's and water taxis. Nice variety of shops in the port area and no "hard sell" on anything.

This was another one of our favorite ports this cruise. I wanted to explore downtown before heading to the beach. We'll definitely be avoiding that in the future. You can't walk two steps without someone trying to sell you something. Next we headed to Maho beach. There were 7 ships in port and it was incredibly crowded. We were still able to find some space to hang out for a few landings but it wasn't very relaxing. We took a 10 minute walk to Mullet Bay and it was like we had crossed the entire island. The water had some nice waves which were fun to play in. Read Less

We went to the Sunset Bar and Grill to watch the planes landing at Maho Beach. Spent around 90 minutes there and took around 30 minutes to get there. The beach is really small so the only real reason to go there is to watch the planes. If you take a taxi from the port, it will cost you $16 return per person. Instead, we left from Philipsburg and took a bus for $2 per person each way. We got on Walter A. Nisbeth Road near Tamarinde Steeg. Just ask a local or even better someone at a souvenir store like we did. Or if you want to take it from near the port, I’m sure that tourist information could tell you. One thing, most if not all of the “busses” are really vans that show their destination. Our driver also told us that we could take a bus back to the port from Maho for $5. For the rest of our day, we walked around the shops in Philipsburg before heading back to the ship. It takes around 15 minutes to walk. You also have the option of taking the water taxi for $7 return or $5 one way. There are a number of electronic stores but I suggest you do your research beforehand and/or have access to the internet so you can compare prices. I was interested in getting an unlocked phone but the prices were pretty much the same as to what I can order back home on Amazon. Then again, maybe I’m just not good at haggling:) In all honesty, I don’t even like to haggle. Read Less

We walked around the tourist area, but did not go inland. I wish we had had one day between St. Thomas and St. Maarten to rest and recover. There is an airport on St. Maarten where the glide path takes the jets over the beach at an altitude of about 20 feet to land on the runway. I have seen videos of it, and regret not going while we were there but we were exhausted from St. Thomas the previous day. Read Less

Loved it- rented two chairs and an umbrella for $25, with WiFi. Let us use sandcastle building tools and my family was entertained for hours. Bought some Guavaberry Rum and had a great day.

St. Martin was full of jewelry shops. It is perfect if you want that type of shopping.
