This is the best hide away bar in the bay. Great cocktails at good prices, amazing views and the friendliest barman on the island. Highly recommended

First off the beach is very small as is the place to swim. Lots of locals trying to rent you chairs/umbrellas. Also selling rum drinks and aloe. We stayed for 2.5 hours but really would have preferred a shorter stay. I wouldn’t recommend this beach.

Marigot Bay is nothing like the rest of the island. It is a peaceful islet all to itself. A great place to spend a weekend.

No real beaches at Marigot bay. There are some good restaurants around the resort, but you should count on bringing your own fun and night life. That’s what we did. Across the harbor from Capella resort is a little park... More

I believe it was $30 (US) round trip for the taxi and the ferry was $1. Both took $US.

First time visitor! Looking for suggestions!! (3 Replies)
Hi! My boyfriend and I will be traveling to St Lucia April 7-16. I have been researching like crazy, but would appreciate some help from the experts! We are looking for some adventure, definitely interested in hiking the pitons, and anywhere else you'd recommend, kayaking (any suggested areas or companies?), snorkeling (I know it is not the greatest, from what I've read, but we still enjoy it), and some time at the beach. We are looking for a vacation rental, hopefully below...More

Bon jou katieooooooo, Best base yourselves in the Heart (Soufrière) and Soul (The Pitons World Heritage Site) of Saint Lucia. Check out Airbnb properties in Soufrière, Chouseul and Laborie for great accommodations at +/- USD 150/night. We recommend hiring a land taxi owner-operator who doubles as tour guide/designated driver/island insider your first days to overstand driving in Saint Lucia. For more detailed information search this forum for each specific question (Hike in Saint Lucia....More

We are staying at Marigot Bay in April what is the quickest way to get there from the main airport? if the helicopter is the quickest how far is Marigot Bay from the landing site thank you!

Response fromsearose|
If you are landing at Hewanorrah (UVF), it will be just as fast to get to Marigot via taxi. By the time you get on as helicopter and fly to George Charles airport (which is where they land) and then drive to Marigot, you'll probably actually be spending more time getting to Marigot than driving direct - which takes about 1 1/4 hours.

We love the Caribbean but have not been to st Lucia before. I have heard there are lots of gorgeous hotels but guests just stay in hotels whereas we love to walk around/ hike/ see scenery. It sounds like Soufriere is the best place to be able to do this- is that right and if so, is Marigot Bay a good choice? We are looking for a lovely hotel, gym, walking outside the hotel so we can see local life etc, not just sitting by the pool Any advice welcome as is my 40th so want to do something...More

MArigot Bay is a considerable way by vehicle from Soufriere - about 45 minutes or so. Marigot Bay is lovely, several restaurants and bars and small little beach area - although it is on the yacht harbor. In the Soufriere area, there are lots of hotels and guest houses to fit all budgets from 5-star to basic. Several to look at may be The Still Beach House or Hummingbird Resort. Both are on the beachfront in Soufriere and walking distance to the village for local eat and drinks, and to hang...More
