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. 

Pick Your Ideal Beach

Friar's Bay Beach

Lover's Beach: To get to Lover's Beach, drive towards Friar's Bay and take a left down a dirt road toward the coast rather than crossing the bridge. There you will park your car and follow the tail through the gate.

A second alternative that beach-goers can 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: With beautiful clear waters, soft sand and hillside views, this is a lovely daytime beach. There are some villas and accommodations here.
