Paralleling the main shopping street "Front Street" in Philipsburg, facing South, lies Great Bay Beach. The beach is long of over a mile, and wide. There is plenty of fine white sand, and the water is good for a swim, usually visited by cruise ship tourists.

View of Great Bay

Great Bay is conveniently located for vacationers staying in one of the hotels, resorts or guesthouses in downtown Philipsburg. Same is true for the (cruise ship) shoppers who´d like to combine a day of bargains and lazying by the beach or hanging out at one of the casual bars.
