A car rental in Philipsburg will transport you to one of the several interesting bodies of water on the island. The main, downtown part of the city is built on a small island on Great Salt Pond which is itself just a stone's throw from the Caribbean Sea. To the northwest, toward the city of Marigot, is Simpson Bay Lagoon. This body of water is also blocked from the ocean and is lined with resort buildings and shops on one side, and lush, green hills on the other. The whole lagoon is surrounded by unimaginatively white, sandy beaches with endless sunbathing potential.
Elsewhere on the island you can easily enjoy a horseback ride, a butterfly farm, and a seafood-centric meal with a sip of the historic, island-made Guavaberry Liqueur - all in one day. With a car rental in Philipsburg you will be able to visit the island's many beaches with ease and on a schedule that you set for yourself. The beach that draws the most visitors is Maho Beach. People do not generally come for the swimming and sunbathing though, at least not for long. The main attraction here is the fact that the pavement of the airport runway starts where the sand ends. This means that passenger airplanes pass only 15-20 feet over the heads of beach dwellers, which is a sight indeed.
