Marigot, St. Martin

Tucked beside a lovely cove on the French side of this Dutch/French island, Marigot’s streets are lined with boutiques and shops displaying the filigree ironwork and striped awnings of a Riviera village. In the shops, imported Gallic goods tempt you to sample everything from cheeses and cornichons to the latest fashions. Across the island, Dutch Philipsburg is a famous duty-free bazaar, and offers activities including a sailing race aboard real 12-meter America’s Cup yachts.
