Walking in this area is limited as many streets do not have sidewalks and some areas do have sidewalks but can also be hilly.

The two best places for shopping are along Front St and Back St. in Philipsburg and in Marigot. These places are too far from Pelican to walk.

Pelicah has a beach. The nicer beaches require you to take transport.

You can take a small boat to Marigot from the marina while Hubby sleeps...

I've stayed at the PRC several times. During the last few trips I rented a car for more flexibility but in the beginning I didn't. I'd walk down the hill to the main street (long walk) and catch a local bus to Simpson Bay. They have cute little shops there, a grocery store, casino, restaurants, etc. The bus was a dollar or two and was a short ride. The walk back to the resort is tougher as it's mostly uphill. I took a canvas bag to hold my treasures and had no problem walking up the hill. Enjoy!

There are some shops in Simpson and Maho in case you don't want to go to Phillpsburg or Marigot. The air port is in between the two.
