    Rue de Charles de Gaulle starts at Marigot’s Marina Port Royal on one end. The thoroughfare stretches a few blocks in the other direction before ending at the small but picturesque Park de la Collectivité.

    You can find several local clothing boutiques (for both men and women) and a surf shop. The street is mostly known for hosting one of Saint Martin’s favourite jewellers. Jewels by Love operates an outpost of its primary Philipsburg location in Marigot. It’s a great place to shop for fine timepieces and jewellery from luxury brands, such as Patek Philippe and Breguet.

    Upmarket shopping street in Philipsburg

    Voorstraat, or simply Front Street, is a busy thoroughfare in Philipsburg. The tree-lined walkway is lined with stores, hotels, museums, and restaurants.

    • Sejarah

    Old Street in Philipsburg, located right off Front Street, is tiny — stretching only 1 city block. However, it’s noteworthy for quaint, backstreet vibes and hidden gems. The speciality shops lining the stone streets occupy former homes dating back to the 1800s.

    You can find a jeweller, clothing boutique, and gift shop, as well as a small cafe serving French-inspired cuisine on Old Street. Even if you don’t buy anything here, it’s such a conveniently placed street that it’s worth a visit for the photos alone.

    Archterstaat (Back Street)

    Skip the crowds to find great deals in Philipsburg

    • Shopper

    Back Street is the literal opposite of Front Street in Philipsburg. It sits just across the side of the city blocks, putting it a little further away from the beach (and cruise passengers, as a result). So, go here for smaller crowds, but stellar shopping in Saint Martin.

    You’ll find local boutiques selling an array of products, from clothes and cosmetics to sporting goods and souvenirs. Like most shopping areas in Philipsburg, jewellery stores are plentiful here. Haggling is welcomed at most businesses on Back Street.

    Combine shopping with sightseeing in Marigot

    • Shopper

    Rue de la Republique in Marigot curves around the shoreline, following the bay. The street is a good pick for shoppers who may have uninterested fellow travellers tagging along, as shopping is certainly not the only thing to be found here.
