Experience the luxury of duty-free shopping

In this article, we are pleased to introduce you to four unique opportunities when it comes to duty-free shopping in St. Maarten. Immerse yourself in an absolutely unique shopping experience …

Welcome to Penha Duty Free

Penha was founded in 1865 and is still owned by the same family. A company based on tried and tested values such as authenticity and genuineness.
Let’s start with the most important thing, namely where to find the Penha Duty Free branches. There is sure to be at least one of them near you during your stay.


Not far from the beach on Great Bay, on the well-known Frontstreet (Voorstraat), you will find perfume, skincare products, cosmetics, spirits and tobacco products. Elegantly presented and very stylishly furnished, this is definitely one of our favorite stores.

Here you can shop duty-free to your heart’s content from Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm.

The store is located in the Philipsburg district at 55 Frontstreet.

Just a few minutes’ walk from the beautiful Maho Beach, opposite the Casino Royale, the focus of the goods on offer is on well-known perfumes and spirits. Of course, local Caribbean liqueurs are also in the range. Shopping becomes an experience here. Chic and appealing interior in a great setting.

The gates are open for you every day from 9 am to 10 pm. On Sundays, however, they are only open from 1 pm.

You will find the store in the Maho district at Plaza Rhine Road 9/10.

We continue with the Cole Bay district, where the third store is located. Here you will find cosmetics and skincare products, perfumes and a selection of fine spirits. The interior is based on the other stores and is therefore just as elegant as already described.

You can start your shopping here from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am to 7 pm. However, if you want to go shopping on Sundays, you have to choose one of the other stores.

To be found in the Cole Bay district, Plum Tree Drive 15, Unit 1.2


Last but not least, a store that you are sure to pass by on your departure at the latest. Of course, you can also shop in the airport building itself, but the focus of the duty-free shopping options here is more on a variety of perfumes. Therefore, we strongly recommend a visit to the previously mentioned branches for all other items.

They are always open except on Sundays (!). From 9 am to 6 pm. So if you’re flying out on Sunday and haven’t done your shopping yet, keep an eye on this …

There is so much to discover …

You are sure to quickly find out which store is near you and what is available there. That’s why we definitely recommend a visit to the website, as all the products are clearly listed here. But there’s more!

For example, from a purchase value of 100 USD, you can have your purchases delivered to your hotel free of charge when shopping online. You will also find a dedicated beauty channel for cosmetics and skincare products, a gift store and of course current offers in the ON SALE category!

But that’s not all! If you visit other islands in the Caribbean, you will also find PENHA in Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao and the Grand Cayman Islands.

We therefore wish you lots of fun with Penha Duty-Free shopping.
