Not as much shopping. As you would think. Want do some shopping look for flemark. Or look on other side island.

This is one of the main shopping plazas. There is a huge range of stores from extremely expensive to your typical tourist places. Good variety for everyone in the family to find something they like.

The Royal Plaza has several budget friendly and mid-range shopping options. Access to many souvenir type items here. Great location, very close to cruise port.

Great area to walk around and see the influence of the Dutch architecture but the vibrant colors that are used in the Caribbean. Good place for a few hours of walking around shooting pictures and of course souvenir shopping. Then go to one of the...More

This shopping mall has a good selection of shops, both the typical tourist souvenir shops and also some nice jewelry outlets. There is a small market area across the road for further bargains!

Not really sure - most places seem to open around 10:00 am and close between 5 and 8 pm. If there is a cruise ship in port they will be open as long as people are still in town. Many stores close to observe Jewish holidays... More

We usually shop there at 10 am when most of the shops are open. I believe the shops close at 5:00 or 5:30 but may remain open longer when a ship is not due to leave until later in the evening. However Mondays are slow... More
