Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Philipsburg, Sint Maarten, cityscape at the Great Bay and Great Salt Pond.

St Maarten is an island surrounded by beautiful white sandy beaches, lively boardwalks and a mix of culture and heritage. The island is divided into two, Dutch St Maarten and French Saint Martin, both of which offer different culture, history and architecture making this island interesting and one of a kind. The Dutch Sint Maarten is situated in the south and is alive with bustling resorts, casinos, bars and restaurants while the northern French Saint Martin reminds you of a French fishing village, filled with colour, houses built into the cliffs and mouth-watering cuisine.
