“WE DID SOME WALKING AND DRINKING!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

FANNIE PAK, Heaver, Bry, Bry and IAGMI were on our vacation of love. We went to St. Maarten and had a nice little adventure at St. Maarten Boardwalk we walked the whole Boardwalk cuz Fannie Pak said we had too. Fannie Pak likes to get her walking on and YOU KNOW IT! We walked up and down the Boardwalk and we took a break to get some of them tasty beverages to cool off. We were people watching and there be some weird peeples out there in their bathing suits. Some not so good to look at, some were frightening, and some were downright disgusting! What's up with dat? The stores were not bad and the prices were okay. The beach was awesome and it was great weather! I saw some peeples and I say hi to them and what you doing? They say I be waiting on the Bus! IAGMI give this place the two big thumbs up! What a pleasure and a treasure!

“Fun to walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

It's great to walk and see the ocean. Grab a couple of chaises ranging from $15-$25 for 2 loungers and an umbrella.

All the merchants we spoke with were very friendly and helpful. Our cab driver could have taken us to the French side of the Island for three times the fare, but didn't. Loved the friendly honest peole

“Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

You can definitely spend a whole day in Philipsburg. There are plenty of shops and restaurants to explore. It is a duty free zone so many people purchase jewelry and cameras to take back home with them. The beach had lounge chairs and umbrellas for rent but most of them were being occupied. The day that we went, there were 4 cruise ships at dock, the place was crowded. Even with the crowds the place was very clean.
