"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.

                   So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails."

Historical Phillipsburg Biking Day Trip in St. Maarten

Leave the crowded tour bus behind on this St Maarten excursion and bike around Phillipsburg's most famous historic landmarks with your knowledgeable guide and fellow free-spirited St. Maarten travelers.

After meeting your tour guides, you will have an instruction session about your comfortable Trek hybrid bicycle and equipment. Once everyone is ready, you'll head out to see and learn more about the island's significant historical sites such as the Freedom Fighter's monument, and the Salt Picker's monument at the Great Salt Pond, and the centrally located Courthouse, which was built in 1793 and still serves its purpose today. You will also visit Carnival Village before heading over the Ring Road to meet a local artist and pause for a cold drink. Lastly, you will stop at the Walter Plantz Plaza, where you can dip in the pristine blue waters of the Great Bay and enjoy a fresh shower before heading back to your ship.

You will also have the option to hike up to the remains of an old fort with amazing views of the bay and surrounding islands.

A stop will be made at a popular local bar to purchase a cold, non-alcoholic drink and take in some great views before returning to the pier area.
