We went to Maho beach to see the jet planes land and take off - it was a blast! Share a taxi with others - $8 a person

Our excursion for the day was Da Party Bus. We could not have asked for a better tour of the island. We feel like we saw much of the island, learned about the heritage and had a great time while doing it.

Did a full island tour which was fun to see but a lot of driving. I would skip a few stops and spend more time at Maho Beach--what a kick watching those planes land and take off.

Create your own excursion: walk to town and take the bus/van to Maho Beach ($2). Check out the planes landing practically on top of you. The ride to and from the beach is fun too!

Be sure to check out Maho Beach! It is an excellent beach to go to. Do not need to book through the ship we took a taxi for $9/per person. Free Admission onto the beach. There is chair rentals available and a bar/restaurant/gift shop/ public bathrooms available.
