Best Things To Do In St Maarten
Great article from US News about the best things to do in St Maarten – St Martin along with world rankings under various categories.
We would, in our humble opinion, agree with some but not all of the things on their list – it’s obvious to us they haven’t got an ‘insider’s’ edge like we have and have missed a few not-so-obvious attractions like particular restaurants or the many scenic and secret photo spots and beautiful lookouts that you won’t find in any online guide or website – EXCEPT perhaps our own insider’s guide – St Maarten Island Guide.

St Maarten St Maritn Airport, known as Princess Juliana International Airport, considered to be one of our main attraction in St Maarten. Although St. Maarten is a little island, with daily flights from the leading airlines in US, Europe, South America and neighbor islands no wonder that the airport of St Maarten St Marin is one of the busiest in the region. If you are planning a trip over and you are looking into booking flight to St Maarten then St Maarten St Martin airport code is simply SXM.
St Marten airport located in one of the beautiful St Maarten beaches. The runway is actually located right on the edge of Maho Beach and every landing and Taking off is a breath taking experience. One of the world famous bars – Sunset Beach Bar – located right on the beginning of the runway is by far, one of the main attraction of our island. St Maarten Airport is probably the only place in the world where you can almost touch the planes while landing…especially after few drinks…
so…buckle up, sit back, relax and enjoy the flight…

OK. So recovery is not all that it’s cracked up to be.
Ingrid Bosnie’s Roaring 20’s party Friday night at Oyster Bay Resort was everything and more than promised.
Fabulous mix of people with the Prime Minister Mrs. Sarah Wescott Williams leading the flappers. Yet again, Ingrid pulled out all the stops. The hotel entrance and lobby area were designed around the low-light, smoky, sultry atmosphere of a speakeasy bar during prohibition.
