Philipsburg - St. Martin

Enjoy the colonial atmosphere and duty-free shopping of St Maarten's principal town, Philipsburg, which is situated on a sand bar that separates Great Salt Pond, an étang or salt marsh, from the ocean.

The entire town consists of two streets, Voorstraat (Front Street) and Achterstraat (Back Street), and several short, narrow alleys.
