Situated on a narrow stretch of land between Green Bay and Great Salt Pond, Philipsburg is the capital of St Maarten.  Steeped in history you’d be forgiven for not being aware Christoper Columbus discovered Philipsburg in 1493 (well actually it was already an Arawak settlement before he made the discovery). As for the name – well in 1763 John Philips, a Scottish captain the Dutch Navy founded Philipsburg (the clue being in his name). Philipsburg which then became a focal point for international trade.

Good news for shoppers – the main shopping district Front Steet is the heart of the city. Additionally the port is home to many cruise liners.

As for the St Maarten All Inclusive experience – well you’re in luck.

Divi Little Bay Beach Resort situated on Little Bay road offers that All inclusive experience. More information on our St Maarten Resorts page. Regarding going all inclusive, there is usually a minimum stay for an all inclusive trip to the Divi (usually 7 nights). Additionally, check the small print as surcharges do apply to certain menu items. Overall if you’re after an all inclusive experience then certainly the Divi should be considered.
