We stopped at the beautiful Marigot Bay on a boat tour last week. The weather was perfect, mid 80's with a slight breeze. The water and beaches the most beautiful on the island. We had drinks and enjoyed free WIFI at Doolittle's Restaurant and Resort.

As much as I would love to stay, I don't think I could feasibly afford it, but I do have to say that spending a few hours at Chateau Mygo Seafood House gave us a great opportunity to view million dollar yachts and amazing cliff houses that shoot up to the top.

It was lovely, the water warm and the food around it was good. The water taxi was fun to take between places. Swimming was nice in the bay, but not near the anchored boats.

We want to thank David and Wanda for their gracious hospitality during our two week stay in February 2015 at Nature’s Paradise. They are warm and friendly people with much knowledge about St. Lucia where they make their home. David can make arrangements and reservations for you. We were in need of a perfectly relaxed time and we were not... More

I really enjoyed this beach. We stopped off here for a couple hours during our drive down from Rodney Bay to Soufriere. The drive over gets steep in some parts but it’s paved the whole way. There is a little parking area that you can park at for free. The parking area is just before the road ends where the... More

A very pretty bay, probably best seen from the west coast viewpoints on the hillside drive or close up from a boat. One of the scenes of the original "Dr Doolittle" film, there's a restaurant bearing its name. Otherwise, a few shops, bars and restaurants and moorings for lots of yachts. Worth seeing as part of a tour but maybe... More

Most tour buses take you to a vantage point overlooking Marigot Bay to take photos and stretch your legs which is what we did on our first visit. However, try renting a car and getting yourself down to the water and it’s part-adventure, part-nightmare. There are loads of back roads and turnings – some going to residential streets, many ending... More

Great view and setting. We drove here to eat at the Rainforest Hideaway. It's tough to see the road to get you there but it's the only turn out in the Marigot area. We parked in the public parking lot and had to pay $5 only because a local said we needed to to keep our car safe. I'm sure... More

There is a lot of day traffic in and out of this bay but one can understand why as it is quite beautiful! The beach is small but the yachting area is top notch.

Most lovely harbour in St. Lucia, you must see Marigot! Lovely bottle of rum bye entering the village. and you should go to the poolbar of the hotel near the harbour.
