Getting Around St. Maarten

St. Martin
Taxis will be witing at the tender drop-off.

For the visitor who has been here before and wants to explore a smaller zone at a slower, more in-depth pace, consider a bicycle or moped. You can rent one from Eugene Moto in Sandy Ground. Prices run anywhere from 22 to 37 euros per day, and they will provide you with maps and suggested routes.

St. Mararten

The main on-foot attraction at the base of the new pier is a set of duty-free shops. Though you can hike the 20-minute route into downtown Philipsburg, the streets are narrow and there are no sidewalks (and the views are incredibly un-scenic to boot) -- take the Water Taxi instead.

In the past taxi operators in St. Maarten were totally independent, setting their own rates and schedules. Now they are under government regulation -- though we heard grousing from some passengers that it was better in the good old days when you could negotiate a price with a cab driver and get a personalized island tour thrown in to boot.

The problem was that if you just wanted, for example, to go directly to Marigot on the French side, drivers would often refuse to take you, waiting for the possibility of a group seeking a more lucrative island tour. Things are better under the new system, where passengers at the new port facility queue up under signs designating per-person rates and destinations -- everything from one-way to Philipsburg to a full island tour.

Vehicles range from standard taxis to large vans and open safari-style vehicles, and rates improve based on the number in your party. The per-person savings aren't that huge, so if you are on a tight schedule and don't know your taxi-mates well, it's probably best to go it alone, lest one of them pipes up that they want to add an island tour or a detour to the beach.

A water taxi operates between the cruise pier and the heart of downtown Philipsburg; cost is $3 each way (a roundtrip discount price of $5 is often available).

This is a destination where renting a car can be a benefit (particularly if you have four or more people and want to see sights on both St. Maarten and St. Martin). There are a handful of agencies at the cruise pier.
