Philipsburg

Atmosfera iz 17. stoljeća

Za vrijeme vašeg krstarenja Karipskim morem, nakon što siđete s vašeg broda u nizozemskoj luci Philipsburg i posjetite zgradu suda, srce grada (bijelo-plava zgrada koja potječe iz 1793. godine i koja je danas poštanski ured), nemojte propustiti izlet na francusku stranu otoka. Marigot, glavni grad Svetog Martina, smješten na zapadnoj obali otoka, zaštićen je velikom lagunom zaljeva Simpson. Zadržao je atmosferu kasnog 17. stoljeća kada je i osnovan. Vrijedi posjetiti njegovo povijesno središte pretrpano drvenim kućama i predivnim trgovinama.

Zatim se počastite izletom u tvrđavu Fort St. Louis, izgrađenu na brežuljku po naredbi Luja XVI. S tog mjesta možete uživati u predivnom pogledu na zaljev Marigot Bay i njegov prekrasni jahtaški klub u kojemu su smještene veličanstvene luksuzne jahte. Međutim, još se ljepši pogled pruža s izleta na Pic du Paradis, odakle pogled seže sve do Anguille, Sabe, St. Eustatiusa i St. Bartha. S obzirom da more vlada otokom, nikako nemojte propustiti plaže na Svetom Martinu (Sint Maarten), počevši s plažom Great Bay Beach, pješčanom plažom u obliku polumjeseca dugačkom kilometar i pol, koja se nalazi ispred Philipsburga.

Ako krenete dalje od baštine koju predstavlja tvrđava Fort Amsterdam (nizozemska tvrđava izgrađena 1620. godine i u kojoj je smještena prelijepa izložba povijesnih artefakata), doći ćete do intimne plaže Little Bay. Odavde možete otići do zaljeva Cay Bay koji ima predivno morsko dno, zanimljivo za one koji vole roniti s maskama. Iz glavnog grada surferi i golferi idu prema zapadu. Surferi idu prema vodama zaljeva Mullet Bay, a golferi na golf teren koji se nalazi iza zaljeva.

Nedaleko od tog mjesta pronaći ćete Cupecoy, mjesto izrezano iz stijene kako bi se dobile male plaže. Još dalje, na zapadnom dijelu otoka, ući ćete na francuski teritorij Terre Basse. Najveća plaža na Svetom Martinu, Baie Longua, nalazi se u blizini.

        A sun-drenched tour awaits you that teams a scenic trip through both sides of this bi-nation island, whose border division between the Dutch and French halves changed location no less than 16 times between 1648 and 1816, with a chance to spend 3 relaxing hours at a stupendous beach. A modern coach will take you from today's Dutch capital of Philipsburg past the Great Salt Pond, the place that once made the island literally "worth its salt” and served to attract the attention of the French, and through the island's attractive countryside. On the way to the French side, you will also pass the Border Monument before continuing on to Orient Beach on French Saint-Martin. You will then have plenty of time to savour all this picture-perfect beach has to offer, which includes a refreshing welcoming drink, a light lunch and use of a beach chair. A scenic return journey then awaits you back to the pier and your ship. Please note: you are recommended to bring a towel, sunscreen and sunglasses. The tour may be run in reverse order depending on local conditions. Traffic can be heavy at times.

      Saint Maarten

      Plaže boje bjelokosti i tirkizno more
      Plaže boje bjelokosti i tirkizno more

      Jedan otok, dva identiteta. Južni dio otoka St Marteen pripada Nizozemskoj, dok sjeverni dio pripada Francuskoj.

       
       
      Na krstarenju prema St Marteenu iskcrat ćete se u glavnom gradu Philipsburgu koji se nalazi u nizozemskom dijelu, udaljen samo nekoliko kilometara od zračne luke. 
       
      S predivne plaže Maho, na jednom kraju piste vidjet ćete koliko nisko zrakoplovi nadlijeću plažu: pravi doživljaj! Na istoku se nalazi predivan zaljev Simpson Bay koji nudi dvije mogućnosti: doručak u baru Yacht Cluba na Isle de Sol gdje su usidrene neke od najinteresantnijih megajahti koje plove Karibima ili plažu Kim Sha s palmama, bijelim pijeskom i tirkiznim morem (ako tražite druge tipično karipske plaže, krenite prema plažama Bay Rouge, Plum Bay, Long Bay i Mullet Bay koje imaju sve turističke objekte). 
       
      Na francuskom dijelu otoka je plaža Orient Beach, u zaljevu Orient Bay, koja gleda prema otoku Tintamarre. To je nudistička plaža koja je vjerojatno najpoznatija i najcjenjenija nudistička plaža na Karibima. Na Svetom Martinu nezaobilazan je i shopping. U glavnom gradu Marigotu možete pronaći dnevnu francusku tržnicu, kao i više od 100 štandova na plaži na kojima se prodaju začini, voće i povrće, rum i lokalne rukotvorine.
