If you want to take a little piece of St. Martin home with you, make sure you stop by to see the craftspeople and local artisanal and maker stores before you leave. On the French side, treat yourselves to all the local delights and specialties on offer, created by the people who are so passionate about their island, this little slice of heaven. On St. Martin, a shopping spree is an authentic experience, with simple, healthy products that are either handmade or made according to specific traditions. You’ll find natural products that have been made right here, such as fragrances, organic cosmetics, unique pieces of jewelry and clothing, and flavored rum.
Most of the island’s stores will take euros or dollars, but we recommend you exchange your money before going shopping and make sure you have some cash in dollars, because it’s more beneficial for you to pay in American dollars due to the current exchange rates.
