Front Street Tours

Philipsburg’s Front Street, or Voorstraat in the local Dutch, is the hub of this Caribbean capital. It runs for about half a mile along the inside of the bay, overlooking the waterfront. Front Street is home to some the island’s finest shopping and restaurants. Visitors in the market for duty-free jewelry, electronics and cigars can stroll this shopping district to find competitive prices. The road also threads a needle through many of the city’s more popular attractions. You can spot wooden colonial buildings like the courthouse from 1793, which is centrally located on Watney Square, and the Methodist church from 1851. Great Bay Beach is just steps from Front Street, as is the oceanfront boardwalk, and if you’re interested to try your luck in a local casino, you can find both Coliseum Casino within easy walking distance.

Practical Info

Front Street runs through the center of Philipsburg and is easily explored on foot. The street and downtown Philipsburg are about 15 minutes by car from Princess Juliana International Airport and a five-minute drive from the cruise ship port.
