Palm Beach

Chic sophistication on St Martin’s most popular beach

Orient Beach






A personal favorite of ours, Palm Beach at Orient Bay is at once relaxing, chic, sophisticated and ‘cool’!


If you want to get away from the noise and people pollution of the ‘Big Five’ restaurants or ‘Lo-lo’s’ of Orient beach on the Eastern end, then get yourself over to the western end!

Although ‘Waikiki’ restaurant is one of the more popular hang outs on Orient Bay, it’s a little too pretentious and unnecessarily pricey for our tastes – it’s a socialites favorite and a place to ‘see and be seen’ much akin to Nikki Beach (and Waikiki is definitely trying to fashion it’s own brand based on Nikki’s worldwide success!).


Take all of the great food Waikiki has, lower the prices, turn the volume down, get rid of the table dancers and space out the sun chairs and then you have Palm Beach.







WARNING: If you go to Palm Beach on Sunday be prepared to meet half of St Martin! It’s their spot on a Sunday especially……


Tip: Don’t turn off on the usual entrance to Orient Bay – it’s the one by the Cisco gas station and Paintball.

Cruising To St. Maarten

TOP 15 HOT TIPS For Cruisers

st maarten cruise shipsAfter many years working with various aspects of cruise ships and passenger movements, we’ve established a list of the MOST valuable things you should know about your cruise to St Maarten –

  • 1. Credit Cards – make sure you tell your cerdit card company BEFORE you leave home that you will be taking a Caribbean cruise! It will avoid any embarrassments or lengthy phone calls from the country you’re in to verify your identity to the issuer. ALSO – always carry ID with you when you leave the ship – some businesses will not allow a transaction if you don’t carry it!
  • 2. Island Tours – For ultimate flexibility you may want to consider hiring a taxi at the port when you get off the ship. This is a great idea if you are a family of 4 – 10 people because you can get a large air-conditioned cruiser with a knowledgable driver who’ll take you exactly where you want to go, show you the sites, stop for photos or literally whatever you want, and at a GREAT PRICE compared to other tours: for $10 – $20 per head you can expect a great day out and they will make sure you avoid the traffic and get back on time!
