Soak up the sights on a scenic island drive that takes you to the famous French capital, Marigot. With time to spend at your leisure, feel free to stroll around the harbour and watch the luxury yachts bob on the azure water. Feeling thirsty? Duck into a pavement café and buy a coffee, or perhaps treat yourself to a snack from a bistro. If you’re in the mood for shopping, you’ll find designer brands in the chic boutiques, while the open-air market (when open) is perfect for gifts and souvenirs.

Have your camera at the ready as you drive back into Dutch territory. Stopping at the Cole Bay lookout, you’ll take in mesmerising vistas encompassing the turquoise water of Simpson Bay Lagoon and the white shores of Cole Bay. From up here, you can also survey both sides of St Maarten and the neighbouring paradise island of Anguilla.
