Philipsburg, St Maarten in Photographs

We visited St Maarten during a Caribbean cruise – the Dutch side of an island shared with the French. A morning wandering around the capital, Philipsburg was very enjoyable. The beach was beautiful and had crystal blue water and all that jazz. There was an abundance of pretty palm trees and the harbour was picturesque. 

Philipsburg is a popular cruise stop and there was actually a massive, and I mean MASSIVE, American cruise ship there at the same time. Needless to say, St Maarten was buzzing. Philipsburg is a popular spot for shopping. Seriously, there are street upon streets brimming with shops.

While shopping is not really my thing, my family were on the look out for tropical print Caribbean shirts for presents! So, yes, there was a bit of retail non-therapy. Anyway, I took loads of photos of this beautiful place. Cue images..

    I’ve never really given the Caribbean much thought until seeing your gorgeous photos from all these wonderful places. Definitely added to the wishlist now!

    The sidewalks look like an old European style, and I wonder whether the French or Dutch side of the island would have more of that kind of street. I especially like that last photo of the map of the island, it’s quite beautiful.
