We spent the day by renting a quad and driving around the entire island! It was absolutely FABULOUS! We rented our quad from NASA.
We started by going to Maho beach, with several stops made for some great photos overlooking beaches and a bay. How lucky we were because within 10 minutes of our arrival a plane landed. We hung out for an hour, had a beer and watched another plane land, then took off for our next stop: Marigot.
After arriving in Marigot, we simply parked our quads on a sidewalk! No worries about finding a parking place. It was great! We made our way to Sarafina's and had a delicious lunch. My husband had a panini and I had a croissant sandwich and his panini was our of this world. It had a basil pesto sauce on it that was incredible!
There was a straw market nearby, but we wanted to hit Orient Beach so we hopped on our quads and took off. Once we arrived at Orient Beach, we parked at Palm Beach and sat around their beach bar for another beer. We hung out for a while, played in the beautiful water, then decided to head back to port so we didn't miss our ship.
After arriving back at NASA, the wonderful owner offered to drive us back to port but we wanted to shop so we declined. He is such a great guy - he gave us a license plate as we mentioned we were heading off to buy one. I cannot recommend NASA highly enough.
