Philipsburg: The shining centre of this Caribbean gem.

This Caribbean island is unique because it is split into two different territories: the French side to the north and the Dutch one to the south, which is home to the vibrant town of Philipsburg. Art galleries, shops, restaurants and casinos keep visitors busy while the more adventurous can snorkel through coral reefs and charter a fishing guide and boat to land marlin. It’s all part of the everyday in Philipsburg.
