When the Spanish closed their colonial fort on St. Maarten in 1648, a few Dutch and French soldiers hid on the island and decided to share it. Soon after, the Netherlands and France signed a formal agreement to split St. Maarten in half, as it is today. Philipsburg displays its Dutch heritage in its architecture and landscaping. The island offers endless stretches of beach, beautiful landscapes and great shopping.

Ocean Lounge Restaurant & Bar

There may be no better place on the island to view the pink-and-yellow-hued sunset than this open-air lounge on the boardwalk at the Holland House Beach Hotel. Settle back on a wicker sofa with a cocktail and crostini.
