“CROWDS”

It was very crowded! If you like to shop for everything this were you need to be. Prices are way better here then on the French side. Shops will make you some good deals if you ask.

“THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PART OF ST MAARTIN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

It was the first stop on our Halloween Cruise on the Ruby Princess, the beaches are snow white, Philipsburg has a certain European - Caribe charm to it, the prices are great too. For the smokers it is heaven a carton can go for as little as $16 and there are great prices for anything you like to drink. We went over to the French side of the island and I have to admit that side needs a face lift , now. We had lunch, walked arround the area and then went back to the other side of the island. Taxi fare is about $8 or less per person . Take more time on the Dutch side and shp for the best prices. Enjoy the day !

“great duty free shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

St. Maarten is the best place to shop in the Caribbean. Truly duty free shopping. Front St. In Phillipsburg is loaded with shops including designer names. Great deals on electronics, perfume, and booze.
