Lots of closed stores and missing restaurants from when we were here two years ago, but plenty of rebuilding going on. It’s only a 10-15 minute walk from the ship which gets our walking in before we pick a spot to share a cold beer....More

The boardwalk in Philipsburg is on Great Bay. It is a nice clean sand beach with attendants for chairs/umbrellas for swimming and sunning and water sports but it is not a good snorkeling area (too busy and wavy). You want... More
