Philipsburg, the capital of St-Martin/Sint Maarten's Dutch side, sprawls out along a wide arcing bay that mostly functions as an outdoor shopping mall (and red-light district) for cruise-goers. There are some older buildings that survived the hurricanes mixed among the new, but overall the town is far more commercial than quaint. Most of the duty-free shops are along Front St, while one block south, the Boardwalk is jammed with boisterous beach bars.
