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 favorite. Go to the French side. Eat at the Sunset Grill and watch the planes come in. You can see and feel them flying so close overhead. Just don't get blown away!

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.

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.
