We got on a water taxi to take us to the main town centre. It was more built up than St Kitts and therefore there seemed like there was more to do. It was another hot day so we sat in a beach bar and drank a Carib lager in between shopping.
After we'd had enough of this, we hired a scooter and journeyed to Maho Beach, to the West of the island. Maho Beach is directly beside Princess Juliana International Airport, so you can come up close and personal with the planes landing and taking off, whilst lazing on the beach or in the sea.
It can get quite crowded but I recommend it if you're ever in the vicinity just for the experience. We were lucky enough to be there and see lots of planes, including a jumbo jet landing!
After getting back from the beach, we sampled some tasty flavoured Caribbean rum in numerous shops (the vendors practically force you to try it!) and purchased a snorkel set, which we thought would come in handy on the next stage of our journey... Labadee!
