Shopping in Oyster Pond

Shopping on St. Maarten and St. Martin is hugely popular thanks to the lack of duty and the many, many boutiques selling luxury goods from Europe.  Oyster Pond seems to slip between the cracks as a border town with nothing special to offer as far as shopping is concerned.  It is recommended that if you need anything beyond your basic necessities or a simple souvenir that you head to Philipsburg or Marigot. 

Gifts and Souvenirs

If you're hoping to find some gifts consider visiting St. Maarten Museum Gift Shop, which is found in Philipsburg, 2.7 mi. South West of central Oyster Pond. Most of the products in the gift shop were made by local artists and some were even made by volunteers of the museum. The gift shop also sells books, maps and small publications about St Maarten's heritage. You can call them at (599) 542-4917.
