Philipsburg Guide

Philipsburg Ferry Port

Philipsburg is the capital of Sint Maarten, an island laying in the Caribbean Sea. Great Bay Express provide the only ferry route from the port, heading to Gustavia, an island laying to Sint Marteen’s south east, and lasts around 45 minutes.

What is there to do in Philipsburg?

Reliant on its beautiful beach front to attract tourists, Philipsburg is the quintessential idyllic holiday destination for those in need of a relaxing atmosphere amid beautiful surroundings. The beach off Front Street offers the best water on the island, though it can become very busy in the summer months when the weather is particularly pleasant. Whilst at the beach, it is worthwhile checking out what Front Street has to offer; Philipsburg’s busiest street is lined with shops selling myriad of souvenirs, authentic clothing and art at discounted prices. Away from the beach, the market in the town centre has more leeway when it comes to haggling, which is encouraged for tourists who may be subject to heightened prices. For couples looking to enjoy a romantic experience, there is the opportunity to embark on a horse ride along the beach, which is particularly pleasant in the evening as the sun sets. After a long day in the sun, head to the array of restaurants that serve delicious sea food fresh from the waters.

How do you get around Philipsburg?

Philipsburg is small enough to be covered entirely by foot, which is the desirable option considering the stunning scenery.
