                              Car: Necessary

                              Centrally located on the mountainside of Little Bay Road, enjoying views of Great Bay Beach and its harbor, Little Bay Beach, the capital of Dutch Sint Maarten, Philipsburg, and the AC Wathey Cruise Terminal. Within a short 10-minute walk to the beach, or a 20-minute walk to Front Street, the shopping mecca of the Caribbean.

                              The capital of French Saint Martin, Marigot, is accessible through Link 1, and is only a 25-minute drive. Orient Beach is accessible by way of French Quarter, and is a 35-minute drive away.

                              The Philipsburg Boardwalk is a 10-minute drive away or a 20-minute walk, there you can enjoy one of the many restaurants or a cold beer to cool off.

                              Villa En'Sea is the perfect spot to view some of the spectacular events of the 35th world renowned St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, March 2015

                              Come and enjoy the Sint Maarten Carnival Grand Parade, April 30th and May 1st. View the beautiful array of colors, feathers and bling, not to mention lots of island music.

                              Other Activities: For a relaxing day, take a catamaran cruise to Prickly Pear where the snorkeling is phenomenal, or a French gourmet lunch in St. Barths, or perhaps a beach lunch in Anguilla.

                              Why not jump-start your vacation by spending a day at the spa. Sint Maarten has several spas that offer an array of services to spoil you.

                              Need an adrenaline rush, transform yourself into a human kite and parasail over the clear Caribbean Sea.

                              How about some zip-lining at our eco park, Loterie Farm, a 135-acre private nature reserve. Enjoy lunch at their fabulous restaurant, which uses their own freshly grown produce.

                              Up for a reel fight? Try some deep-sea fishing – it might be your lucky day to hook the big one.

                              Feeling free spirited? Enjoy a day on Orient Beach where clothing is optional. Relax under an umbrella as the trade winds keep you cool. Try some kite surfing or a refreshing ride on a jet ski.

                              For the exercise fanatics, a workout at the gym will help counterbalance Sint Maarten’s great restaurants.

                              Golf: For the golfers, The Mullet Bay Golf Course is an 18 hole golf course. Clubs and carts are available to rent.
