View Full Version : Scuba and beaches in St. Martin

January 22nd, 2005, 02:37 PM
We are first timers on the eastern route and are wondering

1. Which beach is the one with the airplane fly overs and what is the best way to get there?

2. Is St. Martin a good spot for scuba diving, and if so who to use??

The beach is Maho. If you have high-speed internet check out my video (http://home.pacbell.net/rccooks/aa_landing.wmv).
Best mode of transportation is probably taxi (http://www.sxmtaxi.com/rate.htm), but you can get there using the local bus 'system'. Look for a bus (http://photobucket.com/albums/v357/gtaylor/SXM%202004%202005/?) headed to Mulllet Bay (or M-Bay) tell the driver you want off at Maho.

St. Maarten really isn't renowned for SCUBA sites. You might save that for elsewhere and enjoy St. Maarten for the beaches, shopping and Friendly People.
