Many call calm and quiet Mullet a decent alternative to the noise and sand blasts of Maho Bay, or to the crowds of the French side's Orient Bay. Along with its clear waters, travelers were pleased with Mullet Bay's soft sand and surfer-ready waves.

Because of its proximity to the cruise terminal (about a 30-minute drive), you'll likely encounter crowds when ships are docked. Chair and umbrella rentals cost about $15 for the day, according to past visitors. You'll find few facilities here, so plan accordingly. Mullet Bay sits near the airport, just south of scenic Cupecoy Beach and is free to visit.

#1 Sailing, Yachting and Boat Tours

Surrounded by the gorgeous Caribbean water on all sides, one of the more popular activities on the island is to get off it! Sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, snorkeling, diving and any other watersport you can imagine is easy enough to schedule, and many companies stand ready to take you out for the day. Since St. Martin is in the heart of the Lesser Antilles, it's also quite popular to visit other islands, such as Anguilla, St. Barts and Saba.

Day sails or specialty boat tours that offer everything from eco-snorkeling to party-in-the-sun itineraries are quite common. Daysailing companies that receive excellent reviews from past visitors include Soualiga Destinations Boat Tours and Captain Alan's Boat Charters.
