Very pretty port. Great Bay Beach was a bit disappointing based on what I had read before the cruise that this was suppose to be an excellent beach. Glad I didn't spend money to do an "excursion" to this. Was easily seen from the shopping district. We did take the water tax from the pier over to the district. Read Less

We walked to the closest beach. The beach was great but the lounge vendors were far too agressive. Two different vendors trying to get our business claiming each other was trying to rip us off. Not good for future business.

This was the most beautiful port we visited. Crystal blue water and colorful surroundings. We took a water taxi to the main shopping district.

While the tour itself was OK, the tour guide mostly showed us the devastation from the 2017 hurricane.

Main town/shopping area and beach are not great. Feels very depressed, poor, and dirty. Get off the beaten path or away from the first areas and maybe it gets better.

We did a DIY walk into Philipsburg. The walk is generally easy, but I had pictured a nice pedestrian walkway the entire way and it isn't. At times, it is undefined and you can just follow next to the road...beware of the puddles and the cars driving through them if it has rained. We went to the Yoga Guy Movie Exhibit. I highly recommend for fans of Star Wars and/or those interested in film production. Nick Maley also works at his store and you can find him there and talk to him if he is in town. Admission to the exhibit is written up as a donation to his foundation, Follow Your Star which supports and encourages young artists. Read Less

Have been to St Maarten previously both on ships and at hotels so not much interest in touring around. Off the main shopping street you can still see hurricane damage. Took sea taxi back to ship, very convenient
