Show Philipsburg Sailings
St. Maarten is the smallest landmass to be divided between two self-governing powers, the Dutch and French. The legend states that St. Maarten was divided by means of a race, and the Frenchman quickly claimed 21 square miles of territory, while the Dutchman who took multiple breaks to sip Dutch Gin only took 16. Philipsburg is the capital of Dutch St. Maarten, and it is located between Great Bay and the Great Salt Pond.
