Duty free shopping
The best places to find St. Martin shopping outlets are in Marigot on the French side and Philipsburg on the Dutch side. Front Street is Philipsburg's main duty-free drag, with dozens of quaint shops and elegant boutiques to choose from. We're very close to the huge tax free shopping area on Frontstreet.
Marigot Saint Martin has a southern European flavor, especially its beautiful harbor front, with shopping stalls, open-air cafés, and fresh-food vendors. It's well worth a few hours to explore if you're a shopper, a gourmand, or just a Francophile.
Philipsburg, the capital of the Dutch side is located on the south side of the island and is the port of call of all the major cruise lines. A dynamic little town with all kind of Duty Free shops, with international names to more local brands.
