Island Highlights With Lunch
Take a cultural journey through the scenic spots of St. Martin, from Lucas Bay to Maho Beach. Experience live sea urchins up-close, watch jets fly overhead from the Caribbean's most exciting landing strip, and soak up the sun on the beach. You'll also stop at some of St. Martin's historic landmarks like the 18th-century Fort Louis, take in spectacular views that St. Martin's laid-back atmosphere brings and dine on a delicious barbecue lunch plus so much more.
Start your morning with a relaxing, comfortable ride in an air-conditioned vehicle equipped with Wi-Fi, complimentary refreshments, and a local guide to the Great Salt Pond, St. Martin's largest saline pool lagoon. This national monument dates to the 1620s, where early settlers used the area for salt production. Today, you can catch a glimpse of local wildlife in action, including the birds that call the Great Salt Pond home.
Your tour will next make a stop at the scenic natural reserve that overlooks the French island of St. Barth's when you visit Coralita Bay. Take photos of this beautiful area with sweeping panoramic views of Orient Beach from Paradise View and Marigot and Anguilla from the top of Fort Louis.
Enjoy dining at a local restaurant and delight your palate with tasty barbecue cuisine with a stop at the Grand Case, once the largest villages of slaves that's since transformed into the Caribbean's culinary gastronomic capital. Your guide will also give you a dose of the island's history while on this tour, and you'll also enjoy shopping for crafts, souvenirs, and more along the colonial streets of Marigot. Your tour wraps up with a visit to Simpson Bay where you can return to your cruise ship or explore downtown Philipsburg on your own.
