Located on St. Maarten’s western shore, this onetime sleepy fishing village is the capital of French St. Maarten and features vibrantly colored houses, several restaurants, and boutiques specializing in luxury clothing, jewelry, and cosmetics. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the locally operated Marigot Market features stalls offering fresh fruit, vegetables, spices, meat and fish and artisan kiosks offering local goods, souvenirs and more.
