Because we were. After 3 days of banana ketchup on St. Lucia, stunning views (and cows!) on Barbados, and exploring fortresses on St. Kitts, it was time for a beach break. Which worked our perfectly because this break was necessary for our wallets as well. We started out the day doing a little shopping near the port, which we quickly discovered was a bunch of touristy items- hats, shirts, prints (some which were very beautiful). After what I remember being just a few minutes, this became boring/exhausting/ughh most likely due to the extreme heat. The views nearby were pretty nice, as well as the random waterfall we encountered (which provided a nice breeze of misty air). We headed straight to the beach after that. And didn’t look back. After a few days running around the other islands, we needed a well-deserved break. Don’t leave Sint Maarten without having a few of their Carib Lagers, the most widely available and quintessential beach beer in Sint Maarten. Light, crisp, and refreshing, drop a lime in and it’ll beat Corona any day. Voted as one of the 5 best Caribbean Beers, you’ll be sorry if you don’t have at least a few. Also, don’t miss out on Maho Beach, where you can lay on your beach towel and watch the planes overhead. We, unfortunately, did not have time. How Cool is That?
