St. Maarten is one of the parts of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Its natural features span lagoons, salt pans, and beaches. The capital, Philipsburg is colorful and has cobblestone streets colonial-style buildings lining its Front Street shopping area. It is a popular cruise-ship stop. It is a country located in the south of the Caribbean with St. Martin. Travelila brings some interesting things to do in St. Maarten.
Having a Zip Line Activity
At St. Martin’s highest point there is a place named Loterie Farm where a Zip Line Activity can be done and can have an adrenaline rush. It has many obstacles like crossing the rope and plank bridges and is one of the extreme sports in St. Maarten. It starts with a bus ride and from there it directly sails over the treetops. It would be the best trip for traveling with friends.
Having an Amazing View of the Island
A fort named Fort Louis named after France’s king is the largest historical monument located above Marigot from where a whole panoramic and amazing view of St. Maarten Island can be seen.

Different Activities at Orient Bay
Orient Bay is the island’s busiest and clothing-optional beach and is host to different activities you can imagine. Activities like windsurfing, parasailing, snorkeling, riding banana boats, and jet skiing over the sand up to 2 miles.

Visit Pinel Island
Pinel Island is a little and beautiful paradise with fantastic snorkeling, it is just a short kayak ride away from the place named Cul de Sac on the French side of St. Martin.
