“Frontstreet Shopping”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Tax and duty free shopping until your eyes bleed. Really great vibe while shopping. Everyone sells alcohol everywhere, and you can roam the shops drinking the whole damn time. This may help or hinder your shopping strategy, but its fun either way.

There is a plethora of jewelry and liquor stores, and many are combined into 1 store. Where else can you get liquor and diamonds in the same sale? Great place.

At the start of the street, a purse, $15 bucks. At the end of of the street, the same purse, $5 bucks. Be careful.
Good designer stores duty free.

“A concretewalk really, no boards .”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

There are dozens of eating and drinking places and when there is a cruise boat in the harbour the area is crammed with hustle and bustle, Segways everywhere and great live music. But if there is not a cruise boat the area is almost deserted. Thats great is you want to browse and shop and get assistance as and when you need it. Well worth a visit.

“Nicest shopping area”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We traveled all around on Sint Maarten and St Martin. Front Street was the nicest shopping area we saw. From high end shops to local ones, something for everyone. Local market place is located behind the Court House.Deal for bargains here.
