  Port Map

Philipsburg is a port town and the capital of Saint Maarten - an island country in the Dutch Antilles, one of the Holland's overseas territories. The island was first settled in 1648.

St Maarten Island

  • Philipsburg (population around 2,000) is located on a narrow stretch of land between the Great Salt Pond and Great Bay. It functions as a commercial center of Saint Martin island, whereof St Maarten encompasses the southern half. 
  • St Maarten (total area 34 km2 / 13 ml2) is one of the Netherlands islands in the Lesser Antilles group - together with Saba Island and Sint Eustatius. The other "Dutch Antilles" islands are in the Leeward Antilles - the ABC islands (ArubaBonaireCuracao).
  • The Saint Maarten island was first sighted on November 11, 1493 by Christopher Columbus, but there was already an Arawak settlement on the site before his discovery. Philipsburg was established in 1763 by John Philips, Scottish captain in the Dutch navy and the settlement soon became a centre of international trade. A couple of historic forts bear witness to the strategic importance of Philipsburg in the history of Saint Maarten: Fort Amsterdam and Fort Willem.
  • In December 2016, four Celebrity Cruises ships docked in Saint Maarten - Eclipse, Equinox, Reflection and and Summit. As part of the Christmas-New Year holidays was offered a Demi Lovato live concert performance, which was also televised.
