Must Do’s from Listers

Mary from Georgia-

“Do not leave this place without experiencing majo beach.  Go to sunset grill and watch the planes land just feet away from you.  There is great food, great drinks and a plane schedule to let you know when to have that camera ready”

Jerry from Miami

“we took a land a sea tour.  Started out in an air-conditioned bus with a really helpful tour guide.  WE got to see the entire island and really got feel for the difference between the Dutch and French side.  Then there was also an hour-long catamaran ride
