Taxi rides are pricey! We spent $65 going to 3 different places. If you could rent a car it would be ideal as the roads here were well paved and out of all the islands this one seemed most developed and populated.
Orient Beach was fun-went to both sides although beach was better in Barbados and St. Kitts (high surf at Orient). This beach was much more of a party beach in general.
Maho Beach/Sunset Beach-great if you want to see planes land. Small strip of beach but water was clear and sand was soft.
Marigot-good for shopping and eating lunch
Locals/cab drivers were the least friendly on this island compared to all our other ports.
French influence very apparent on the island which was really neat.
