Follow your friendly guide along the lively and colourful boardwalk right into the heart of Philipsburg, with its wonderfully diverse mix of shops, cafés and culture.

You’ll visit the Great Salt Pond, where you might encounter rare birds. And you’ll hear fascinating facts about the rich and colourful heritage of St Maarten as you pause at Carnival Village and the old courthouse, which has served various intriguing purposes since 1793.

Feeling a little warm? Take a dip in the azure water at Great Bay Beach – a stunning spot on the edge of town. Back on the boardwalk, stop to enjoy a well-earned cold drink in a local restaurant before you ride the last leg of your adventure
