St. Martin ‘Flying’ Activities

Hook on, zip off & fly


You’re never too old to play Tarzan, as proven by the island’s undisputed fun zone at Loterie Farm on the French side St. Martin. This beautiful forest location’s ‘FlyZone’ takes both children and adults up into the canopy, where zip lines take you on an adventure course among the mangoes.

A ‘Ti Tarzan’ course for smaller children replicates the higher magic in miniature. Even further up the island’s highest hillside, the Xtreme Zipline is a high altitude, adrenalin fueled version not for the faint hearted. Qualified guides help both children and adults through the courses, while those who prefer to keep it simple can join one of the guided hikes up to the top where stunning views await. Great for groups of all sizes and definitely one of the best attractions on the island.

This is only one of lots  all-ages fun activities St. Maaeren St. Maritn has to offer. It is a small island…but lots to do…

our eBook is full of useful information and discounts of great activities. You will never get board in our beautiful St. Martin!  Find Out More about St Maarten!
