Feast on gastronomic delights of Parisian proportions, stroll velvety sands and wade in idyllic waves before digging into Dutch culture, consumption and casinos.
Start your day with a cafe au lait and French pastry in Marigot before handpicking one of the island’s two-dozen beaches. Kite-surf, kayak or opt for a hairbraid. Ply deep sands and bodysurf on waves that crash just hard enough to make things interesting.
Once your sea-loving side is sated, steer to the duty-free shops of Philipsburg where brand name items await the debut of your charge card. Swing by the Guavaberry Emporium and pick up a bottle of this locally brewed fruity libation.
Come dusk, head to Grand Case, bustling with restaurants suspended over a dramatically floodlit ocean tide. Slice into steaming fresh lobster masterfully prepared fish at Le Tastevin or the Fish Pot. Cap off the evening with a game of gamble on Dutch soil. If you win tonight, it’s lobster again tomorrow!
