Light shopping/walking around Philipsburg


Recommended Posts

I'm going back to this lovely island in April 2020, and will be doing some shopping with a friend who can walk a mile or so.  Not looking for jewelry shops, but interested in little local arts and crafts shops, or spices, soaps.  I read about Ma Doudou, but not much else. Is it easy to catch a cab back to the port from Phillipsburg? Can you pay cabs in American dollars? Suggestions on art galleries, etc., appreciated. TIA

Yes, it is very easy to catch a cab back to port from Philipsburg - in fact, the usual problem is fending off the drivers trying to get you to take a cab when you are not ready to head back, yet.

 

Yes, you can pay in US dollars and, in fact, that is the normal method of payment.  Some cabs may be able to take a credit card but you cannot count on that - have cash.

 

I have no suggestions on art galleries - I really do not recall many in Philipsburg.
