Parking in Philipsburg, St Maarten


As it is the bustling capital of country St Maarten, seat of government, many shops and businesses and confined on its south side by majestic Great Bay Beach, parking in lively Philipsburg during daytime can be challenging if you do not know where to go.
Especially when on a day trip, we recommend to park at the parking lots along Pondfill Road / WJ Nisbeth Road. This boulevard stretching along the full length of the inner city allows for many parking spaces between its north side and the Great Salt Pond. As Philipsburg is two miles long but narrow barely half a mile, you are always close to its famed shopping streets Front Street, Back Street, the Boardwalk and Great Bay Beach..
A paid parking lot is available at centrally located Clem Labega Square, in between of the Saltpickers Monument and the landmark Courthouse.
When enjoying a celebrated St Maarten sunset or exploring its many evening venues you might want to keep the car even closer by to make your trip back from the boardwalk to the hotel even more comfortable after a cocktail (or two). Both its west end Walter Plantz Square and east end (Philipsburg Marina near Aziana Restaurant) have paid and guarded parking spaces.
After shops and businesses close and until they reopen, you have a fair chance of finding a parking spot along Front Street or Back Street. Holland House Beach Hotel provides a separated parking space for its guests.
As with any bustling capital in the world, we recommend not to leave valuable items in the car when exploring our magnificent “Town“.
