Beaches in Marigot

When you're visiting Marigot, the recommended course of action is to avoid the Northern beaches. Although they are perfectly acceptable, they are rather drab compared to the beaches to the south, where you'll find the best views and the calmest waters.

You'll discover an abundance of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Click on each beach name for more detail concerning that beach.

Friar's Bay Beach

Lover's Beach: Hard to find, but worth it if you want a lot of privacy, Lover's Beach is so small it can only accommodate about two people at a time. You'll want to make sure to visit the beach on a day with calm surf, otherwise the tide will be so high that the sand will be covered.

A second place for beach-goers to consider is Baie Nettle. Baie Nettle is on the western end of the Baie de Marigot, a lengthy curved beachfront covered in resorts and private villas. The Baie Nettle area is no exception, though there is a bit of greenery backing this beach.

Friar's Bay Beach: Populated by a small crowd of locals and tourists in the daytime, this beach is known for occasional nighttime beach parties as well.

The chart right below summarizes more details on the beaches that you can find in and around the area.
