It is always an experience to go to Front St. This time I needed to replace my camera. Good deals. Lots of good restaurant choices.

If you're looking for a place to find jewelry, then look no further than Front Street, just off the boardwalk area in-between the cruise ships and the Sonesta Great Bay resort. Everything from loose diamonds, watches, rings, ear rings, chains, necklaces etc. This is where to come for all your jewelry. There are a couple of shops for Pandora jewelry, which is what we were looking for. And since everything is duty free, so the extra sales taxes you'd normally be hit with are excluded from the total price. Over all an excellent selection of items with reasonable prices, good quality can be had if you're interested.

I enjoyed the duty free shopping and most of the items were very affordable. Philipsburg is very beautiful and the people are very friendly in St. Maarten

I like the fact that its clean, however it is a bit more expensive than Back street, seems the lower down the street you go the lower the prices

Again off season although a cruise ship did appear during our stay. Market has all the same products. Souvenir shop in town can beat any price on the same merchandise. Locals tolerate tourists and are much better at bargaining than we were.
