Picturesque Marigot Bay is so pleasing to the eye that it is often used in aerial shots for Hollywood films.  Along the shores, tourists will find the beaches to be slightly crowded by others hoping to spend time on some of the most beautiful beaches on the island.  If you're looking for something on the private side, ask a local for their pick.

Although these beaches will not generally have bathrooms and changing facilities right on the shores, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, and other establishments nearby that make up for it.
