This video of SXM was done with a GoPro camera and a drone. I thought the couple did a super job...

What a great video! One of the best I've seen, and the resolution of it was so clear it makes you feel like you're right there. They really covered much of the island in this five minute clip from Orient Beach to Ft. Amsterdam to Maho and beyond. SXM tourism should use this as a promotional video. Just curious about thing, however. Given the T-shirt she was wearing did she get to 'drink for free' at the Sunset Beach Bar?

Nice video but sure didn't like seeing all that seaweed on those beaches.

I've seen it that way before and turned right around and went to Mullet which was calm that day.

Youtubers are so creative but do cater to a young fast crowd. I would like a slowed down version with Island music. Parrotville was my favorite!

Thanks for sharing this, Wendy. It’s about the best one I’ve seen and I would never have found it on YouTube.


Respectfully,

Truly soul food for anyone who loves SXM as much as we do! So great to see the island back after Irma.

We've been to the fort in Marigot, although it's been a long time. I'm not sure I really ever thought about going to Ft Amsterdam, but it is a nice view.

I took a short video on my iphone when coming back from Marks...coming down the hill with that great view, very short about 20 seconds. Regardless, if I took a longer one next time, do videos come out well here, like the pics? If so, will make a 5 minute one the next time.............

As far as 'coming out well here', you have to upload the video somewhere else and post a link. Then it comes out fine.. I don't think you can upload videos directly here.

I am afraid of parrots... I was bitten by a parrot and still have the scar on my hand. I have no other fears except of course centipedes. LOL

It was a good video but not the best I have seen. Also not the best time to take a video of the island when everything is so brown and burnt up.

Is your cup half full or half empty?
