Things to Do Around Maho Beach
At only 34 square miles, you are never far from explosively colourful trees, stunning beaches and vibrant nightlife. On this glorious island, rental cars are the primary mode of transport meaning you will be perfectly catered for. You can embrace the opportunity to make some noise as it is customary here for drivers to use their horn to greet others.
Approximately 200 metres from the airport is the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and Casino meaning you won’t have to travel far to begin your relaxing stay in Saint Martin.
Princess Juliana Airport itself is a top tourist attraction. The thrilling approach of airplanes above Maho Beach and ease of access for capturing spectacular images make the airport one of the world's favourite places among plane spotters.
Exploring Sint Maarten
Feeling lucky? Then here’s the place for you. St. Maarten, boasts 13 casinos, but many agree that Casino Royale is the best of them all. Once you have hit the jackpot you can take in a nightly show at the casino's Royale Theatre.
With so many glorious beaches it is no surprise that water sports are a big part of St Martin’s charm. Take your pick from diving, surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and kitesurfing, but if relaxing is the sport for you, the island’s warm, golden sands and unspoiled, quiet shores will be sure to see you at the top of the podium.
