Thanks Gary! I think Divi will be just fine for us, especially if we can stop by Gizmos!(heard about the bird)
Last time I went to St. Maarten, about 12 years ago, I walked down the dock into the shopping area, took a left and went to the beach on the left. Is this where the boat still docks?
I don't mind any posts added here, since it's all helpful to me too!
A lot of people do just fine with Divi Little Bay, and it's close and cheap and easy to get to.
12 years ago things were a lot different in Great Bay.
You very likely anchored and were tendered into Philipsburg, to the Little Pier. Go back in this thread and look at the Google Earth shot I posted.
They would have dropped you into shopping and near the middle of Great Bay Beach, which today is fine for sunning, but I wouldn't go into the water there because of concerns about pollution.
That same Google Earth shot shows the relative positions of the Little Pier, Divi and the new Cruise Facility. (Which has added the new Mega-Liner pier since the shot.)
A succinct signature is a superb signature.
