I think your bunch would enjoy Orient beach in St. Maarten, lots of activities, bars, restaurants and water sports as well. You can grab a cab and there are cabs waiting there for the return trip to the pier.
In St. Kitts, there is Turtle beach. Its quite a ways from the dock, but a nice scenic ride and lots of cruise passengers end up there, lovely beach with monkeys around :-)
Donna: What does a typical round trip cab fare cost to Orient Beach - 4 adults? Thinking about renting a car for the day - any recommendations? We were on the island for a week about 6 years ago & rented a car. Not sure whether to rent or cab just for the day. Thanks
Hi Normor, I don't recall the exact taxi amount, but remember it was per person, so you can get 3-4 people in a cab and share the fare... I seem to recall, at that time, it was around $5 person with 4 people, one way.
