From the restaurant, Marigot is three quarters of a mile (one and an eighth kilometers) to the northwest.

The menu at Pagua Bay features items made with produce procured directly from the on-site greenhouse, making every meal taste fresh. Their fresh mahi-mahi or goat tacos are a local favorite, as is the mahi or lobster ceviche. They are also known for their sizeable salads and notably, the flavor of their Caesar salad dressing.
