Whether you’re a foreigner or a local, you’ll have a blast sipping Gauvaberry Emporium, their national liquor.

But that’s not all! Philipsburg has exquisite beaches, and sights, making it the perfect Caribbean city to reside in.


Although Cupecoy is just 10 minutes away from the airport, it’s surprisingly calm and not jam-packed with tourists. If you love serene and calm vibes, this St. Maarten destination is all you need. This St. Maarten destination is popular for its “live and let live” slogan, welcoming all foreigners in its region, including LQBTQ+ foreigners.

Moreover, Cupecoy is well-known for its calm blue waters, making it suitable for a quick dip.

Cupecoy is ideal for locals and visitors seeking a natural beach experience, all day, every day!
