Four miles south of Castries, the small, picture-perfect bay at Marigot, surrounded by lushly forested hills dotted with villas, is one of St Lucia’s true gems. This was the site of long-ago naval battles, and more recently a film location. Its sheltered waters are a haven for yachts, and a tiny sandy beach protects the inner harbour. Take in the view across Marigot’s brilliant blue waters and you’ll understand why it’s been called the Caribbean’s most beautiful bay.
