Beaches in Marigot Bay

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.  

The Area's Beaches

You'll find a large selection of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, if some members of your party are so inclined. Click on each beach name to read a detailed article concerning that specific beach.

La Toc Beach: La Toc is dominated by the Sandals Golf Resort, but there is public access. The atmosphere is relaxed, and it is a really nice location for sunbathers, beach walkers and casual swimmers.

Another option to consider is Anse Couchon. While visiting Anse Couchon, beachgoers can enjoy some underwater sightseeing at the beach's shallow reef, which is home to an array of fascinating sea life. Visitors will doubtlessly fall in love with the exotic and picturesque shores of this romantic getaway.

Vigie Beach: The beach runs alongside the Vigie Airport runway, which seems like an immediate drawback; but the airport is relatively quiet, and its presence means a lack of hotels and resorts, keeping the beach clean and peaceful. Being close to Castries, it also puts you in a good location for shopping, dining, and other activities when you're day at the beach is finished.
