We arrived in St. Lucia by cruise ship and our driver took us to Mount Fortune and Marigot Bay to take in the idyllic island views. Nice island some not so nice people. Please be warned, as we were by our local taxi driver, do not let the locals take photos of you with your phone as you may not... More

We were passing through the area and wanted to check out the marina. It was a Sunday and most places were closed - no biggie. It was a quiet little area. I wanted to check out the distillery but they were asking for a very high entrance fee. We quickly moved on - that's the joy of renting a car.... More

It was raining my last full day on St. Lucia. so we headed out to Castries to take some pictures of the Basilica. We ended up here. I had a great time although it wasn't really planed. We took the water taxy across and made friends with to Lucians nicknamed Sugar, and Toxic? We left quite drunk from the Piton... More

It is beutifull BUT never leave expensive things on your boat! When we were there they stole an iPhone 5! It was worth about 2700zl ( 900 $)when it got "lost". We talked to the police officer we were mailing them sending info about the iPhone. But they didn't respond! That means that they were TOO LAZY to look for... More

Our second visit to the beautiful Marigot Bay. We went by Catamaran and although it is so pretty with the tropical vegetation covering the steep sides bay, we were surprised how commercial it has become. Hotels, homes and a bay full of yachts. The water was still beautiful but we could only circle the bay once due to "traffic". It... More

Lovely get a way and nice short ferry ride to Marigot Bay. The beauty and tranquility of the bay is also rich with the island's history during World War II, where submarines would hide out. Great arts and crafts for sale as well.

We did not get to explore this area on foot, but did visit by boat. It was stunning and I can certainly see why so many celebrities have retreats there! It felt so far removed from civilization, yet houses nightlife and music festivals. This is a place I have on my "must spend time here" list for our next visit!

Hubbie and I stayed here on our 1st trip in 1999. We returned just for lunch this time in 2014 and found it quite a bit different. Lots more places to stay on the road side and more homes built on the surrounding hills. Looks like another ocean cottage building was being built while we were there. Also, the ocean... More

Not an unpleasant place by any means, but I found this not to live up to the glowing reports read elsewhere before visiting.
