Philipsburg is the capital of in Sint Maarten on the island of Saint Martin in the Caribbean sea. It is a busy port for cruise ships and one of the Caribbean's best shopping spots.

Get around

If you are staying on the island for multiple days, don't be afraid to explore. Rent a car; it is very simple to get around and people are friendly. You can get around the island in about 1 and a half hours total time. Don't leave anything of value in the car.

  • Check out the butterfly farm located on the French side of the island.
  • Have a horse back ride down the beach at coconut grove.


Shopping is duty free on the island. Also see notes for St Martin.
