Take a trip to Philipsburg, the capital of Sint Maarten, and enjoy dynamic nightlife and great shopping. The small harbor town features a pair of main streets, lined with palm trees, casinos, and resorts; sprinkled between them you'll find numerous restaurants and colorful duty-free stores. If you get tired of hopping from store to store, lazing on the beach, and frequenting bars and casinos, you can always explore the surrounding scenic bays and the rest of the tiny island. Use our St. Maarten-St. Martin online vacation builder to plan your trip to Philipsburg and other destinations in St. Maarten-St. Martin.
