Experience St Maarten's unique past as you take a leisure bicycle ride through its historically-rich streets. Your guide will lead you into the heart of town, where you will have the chance to stop at various points of interest to learn about the island’s turbulent past and rich culture. You will get up close to the famous salt pond, talk to a local artist, visit important landmarks, and enjoy several fun photo opportunities. Of course your day will not be complete without a dip in the pristine waters of Great Bay before heading back to Port.

Meet your guide at the Philipsburg cruise ship terminal for your 3-hour bike tour of St Maarten’s capital. During a safety briefing, get fixed up with a bike, helmet and lock, and go for a test ride to make sure you’re ready for the streets. Then, pedal off after your guide, who provides commentary on the historical sights you see along the way.

Stop at the Passangrahn Hotel and learn the colorful history behind St Maarten’s oldest inn, which has retained its West Indies colonial style of architecture. Cycle into the center of the town to see Captain Hodge’s Wharf, and on Front Street, check out the 1793 Philipsburg Courthouse, one of the most famous attractions in St Maarten, and originally the home of John Philips who played a key role in developing the town.



Next, head out of the downtown area and huff up the challenging Little Bay Hill (if you prefer, walk with your bike). At the top, admire panoramas of Philipsburg, Little Bay and Great Bay.

Continue through the Divi Little Bay Beach Resort, tackle another short incline and find Fort Amsterdam at the end of a peninsula. Built in 1631, Fort Amsterdam was the first Dutch fort in the Caribbean. Hear about the many battles that took place here between the Spanish and Dutch fleets in the 17th century. As you wander about the ruins, take in sweeping views of Philipsburg and the crystal-clear Great Bay. 



Return to Philipsburg along a boardwalk, and stop for a cold drink in the shade before arriving back at the cruise ship terminal, where your tour ends.
