What to do in Saint Martin


Philipsburg and its boardwalk

Philipsburg is very touristy because its port welcomes many cruise ships every week. If you want to bring back souvenirs to your loved ones or eat in a good restaurant, the boardwalk is definitely the place to be. Don't forget your bathing suit on hot days as the beach is conveniently accessible.


History and museum

History fans will love the Sint Maarten Museum. This non-profit museum allows visitors to learn a lot about the history, geology and archaeology of the island of Saint Martin. 


Yoda Guy Movie Exhibit

Star Wars enthusiasts can't go to Sint Maarten without stopping at the Yoda Guy Movie Exhibit. Fans of Nick Maley, the creator of Yoda, might even get his autograph as he signs several souvenirs bought on the spot by tourists.


Gastronomy

Saint Martin is the tropical destination of choice for foodies. There is nothing better than enjoying a delicious meal on a terrace while watching the sunset. Enjoy the simple things of life!


Saint Martin Airport

The Juliana Princess Airport is world-renowned as it offers a breathtaking experience to vacationers relaxing on Simpson Bay Beach. Some people might be afraid to go, because of the low-flying planes passing a few meters over the heads of people at the beach. Beware, you might get your hair messed up!
