Marigot is the capital on the French side of Saint Martin. Upon arriving at Philipburg, we left our cruise ship and took a boat to visit Marigot. Our tour guide/DJ/singer on the boat was Shine. He had a song for every occasion. According to the other passengers, his singing sounded better after a few of the complimentary rum.
Here are some of the sights we saw in the hour stay on the French side of the island:
The tour boat was docked at the Marina Royale. There are so many beautiful patio restaurants here. Some smelled really good, but most were not open yet since it was still early.
Yes, French is the primary language on this half of the island, although, most people speak English.
As if the buildings weren't colourful enough, there was a whirl of colours in the flea market.
Hmm, didn't notice any vehicles carrying food when we were there.
One stall had over two dozen bags of spices.
Another vendor had homemade rhum.
We couldn't leave without picking up two chocolate croissants!
