Sightseeing at Great Bay in Philipsburg, St Maarten includes a variety of entertainment including one extremely popular local bar where you might have to stand while you sip.
STANDING ROOM ONLY AT JUGGIE’S PLACE
Touted as the “smallest bar in the world”, Juggie’s Place, off Front Street, is eye-catching with its bright yellow front. Its striking blue counter boasts a collection of hand written words of wisdom on pieces of brown paper. This busy spot may only be a tiny storefront with a table or two, but owner Juggie has a relaxed gift of gab that brings visitors back time and time again. Well, that and his bar special: two beers and a Cuban cigar at $2.99!
HEAD TO THE BOARDWALK FOR SHOPPING AND DINING!
Afterwards, head to The Boardwalk! This wide paved sidewalk which runs along the seaward side of Philipsburg features a variety of shops offering jewellery, china, crystal, clothing, gifts, and duty free items.
Stop by L’Escargot Restaurant and relax with the music of Edith Piaf and offerings of award winning escargot, duck and la mousse au chocolate blanc.
