For us it was wandering through the narrow streets and down the beautiful beach just watching and enjoying the scenery. A stop at the Guavaberry Rum Emporium and a tasting of the unusual flavored and aged rums was very enjoyable, but the time walking the town and riding the water taxis really was the fun point for us.
The bay was filled with interesting vessels including some "America's Cup" sail boats that were available for rides. The water taxi is a great way to get from the cruise ship port to the town of Phillipsburg, but there are also land taxi's for trips to the French side also.
All in all a quaint little island that offers a lot of opportunity for fun and frolic. It is said that the night life there is pretty lively, but when traveling by cruise ship, you are underway at 6 pm. ;o)
