The best places to find St. Martin shopping outlets are in Marigot on the French side and Philipsburg on the Dutch. Front Street is Philipsburg's main duty-free drag, with dozens of quaint shops and elegant boutiques to choose from. Look for Carat and Little Europe for an fine selection of china and jewelry. The rue de la Liberté and rue de la République in Marigot top French St. Martin shopping destinations, where a charming jumble of architecture houses the city's chic shops and duty-free boutiques. For cosmetics and perfume Lipstick is the place to be.
