Philipsburg is the capital of 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[edit]

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.
