If your wife or girlfriend are into jewelry. Then Front Street is pretty close to heaven. My wife prefers Carribean Gems ( Ask for Rajesh) and Royal Jeweler ( Vince). These guys have been great to us for the last 20 odd years. They will probably offer you a cold drink. I thought I would be smart and asked for hard to find Dalwhinnie single malt and they got it for me in about 30 seconds!

For souvenirs try Ricky at Caribbean Way. Beer is 98 cents take out down by the boarwalk near the old cruise pier. If you came on a cruise check booze prices before you buy. We got 3 litres of coconut rum for $22. Remeber this is a duty Free Island!

The tax free shopping in philipsburg is well worth going. Rolex is a bit cheaper than Europe & USA but they have a RRP which Rolex make sure they can not drop below. Omega and others have more discounts to give. Barter, walk away, then they will give you even more discount...... we got $ 1,000 from the price of a 7k ring.

A good place for souvenirs, t-shirts and hats and people watching. If your going to buy jewelry or watchers you better know what your doing, because I have heard of too many bad stories about over priced and poor quality jewelry and over priced watches bought in the Caribbean. If your looking for free Wi-Fi in this area, head down to the east end of Front Street make a right and look for the The Candy Shop about 30 yards down the street.
