We walked the street from Great Bay Sonesta to Phillipsburg in hopes of shopping and drinks. Since the ships had left port - most stores had closed. If you hope for high end views, shopping and ambiance - you will be disappointed.

Nice bay views, for a walk or you can do some shopping, get a drink, or food. Very relaxed, with shopping/ food on one side and beach/ water on the other.

Great place to spend the entire day. Short walk from the Philipsburg cruise pier. Lots of shops, boutiques, bars, restaurants. Long sandy beach with calm clear water. Tons of places to rent beach chairs/umbrella for the day. Loved it!

A lot to offer, don't rush plan a day to take it all in. Drink eat shop and repeat, take an occasional break to enjoy the views.
