Enjoy a 17-kilometer cultural tour in St Martin that starts at the cruise harbor or Philipsburg and makes its way over to Marigot. You’ll get to ride through Philipsburg and over “the hill” to enjoy exceptional views of the town and all the nearby islands. This tour takes place twice a day on every day except Sunday and lasts three to four hours. Participants must be 14 or older and have the option of switching to an eBike for an additional fee.
There is a short stop at the Border Monument, separating the Dutch Side from the French side, where you can earn bragging rights that you cycled through 2 countries in one day!! Your guide will explain about the Concordia Treaty which was signed in the 1600’s and serves to this day as an amicable agreement between the French and Dutch Side of St. Maarten. Continue riding along to Marigot, the French Capital, where you will explore the local market, savoring the sights, smells and sounds of a traditional Caribbean market. Then it’s a short climb to the historic Fort Louis, once a strategic fortress protecting the bay of Marigot.
Today, it lazily watches over the capital, offering magnificent views of the town, the bay and the British neighboring island of Anguilla. You then return to Philipsburg via the same route through Colebay.
Or, if your legs are up to in, you have the possibility of cycling back via an alternate route, circling the Lagoon – but this route adds an extra 5 miles ( approximately 40 minutes), at an additional cost of $29.
Each of the bicycles has flat pedals but your shoes and pedals can be installed. There are also Shimano and Look pedals available for no extra charge.
