Her now, need shoes


We are here now in beautiful St.Martin, Simpson Bay. This is my first post but I have been reading your advice for a few weeks prior to our trip.

I need to run out and purchase a pair of sandals that I can wear in the water (forgot to pack mine).

Where can I go near Simpson Bay to pick up a pair of shoes like that with straps? I don't want to spend all of my time looking for them, I'd rather be on the beach, but my feet are getting tender and the flip flops aren't much help.

Thanks for your help!

I suggest you start with the shops at your hotel or in the Maho complex if you are nearby, those shops selling nick-nacks, T- shirts will have what you want.

Thanks, we are in a private villa, I guess we'll just head out and look around later until we find something!

You could try Budget Nautique, which is in the Simpson Bay Yacht Club close to Jimbo's.

there also is a dive shop store near the bridge on the lagoon side of the road.

I am sure they sell those shoes.
