Front street is THE street on the island. Just a few meters from the boardwalk, it has a large variety of stores, in particular beachwear and jewels. It is very busy every day with people coming from the cruise ships. If you are coming by car rather than from the ships, do not try to park there. Use the free parking lots along the pond, three blocks from Front street.

Great atmosphere

Front Street is a "fun" kind of chaos during the day. The folks from the cruise ships are all out shopping, the street is bustling with people and it's an overall fun time to check out the area with a drink in hand. Tons of jewelry shops, and souvenir and other shops.

I love front street in Philipsburg, St Maarten. The shopping is very good. Lots of restaurants. Lots of character. Make sure to see the courthouse.

Most shops have high prices. It's nice to walk around on front street without car traffic. If you are looking for a place to eat after all that shopping look for the Honky Tonk Bar on the beach side. The food was so yummy and not expensive. I had the garlic shrimp with rice and salad and side of the ribs. Oh so yummy.
