Capital Vacations Myrtle Beach talks about the best family friendly things to do at Saint Maarten
Saint Maarten is a tiny Caribbean island that has a laidback and happy vibe, beautiful white sand beaches, and charming towns. Housing a number of interesting attractions, it is a perfect holiday destination for people of all ages. Here are some of the most family friendly spots on the island:
- Loterie Farm: This former sugar plantation is home to the only private nature reserve of Saint Maarten. One can go for a hike with their family in the tropical rainforest here, and spot a few monkeys, a number of lizards and even stunning bright blue or tiger striped butterflies that float around the mahogany trees. There are two zipline rides at the Loterie Farm, the Extreme Fly Zone, and the Fly Zone, which are ideal for thrill seekers and families with teenage kids.
- Butterfly Farm: While St. Martin’s Butterfly Farm is relatively quaint in size, it surely is worth a visit. This farm is located on Le Galion Beach Road. Butterfly Farm features small waterfalls, a variety of spectacular dancing butterflies, and butterfly-friendly plants here. Hence, children are likely to love all of these sights a lot. The guides at Butterfly Farm are great at explaining the lifecycle of the insect, from chrysalis to caterpillar to butterfly. This can be both informative and fun experience for both kids and parents.
- Grand Case and Lolos: Due to its amazing kid-approved beach and affordable food, the village of Grand Case is among the most popular family holiday destinations at Saint Maarten. Its waterfront has a long timber pier ideal for giant leaps into warm, calm, and tranquil Turquoise Ocean, and a gorgeous white sand beach. Subsequent to spending their morning at the beach, families can head over to one of the most popular waterfront Lolo shacks of Saint Maarten for a BBQ lunch. Families can share picnic tables while indulging in lip-smacking BBQ ribs and seafood.
- Rhino Safari Excursion: Speeding along the ocean in a little yellow boat, while bouncing high up on the waves and passing by miles of gorgeous beaches would certainly be an experience to remember. Rhino Safari Excursion provides an excellent tour of the amazing coastline of Saint Maarten. The small yellow boats can fit two adults or one adult and a child, as they really fast. Hence, parents can do this activity with their teenage children. The key highlight of this two-and-a-half tour includes passing a huge ship wreck near Marigot Bay that was caused by Hurricane Lenny in 1999.
