A five minute walk from the Tea House is the beautiful Marigot Bay where you will experience a fantastic selection of restaurants, bars with a variety of live music. There is also a bank, convenient store and gift shops.
Marigot Bay is a small piece of paradise, tucked away from the main tourist centres of the island and yet still able to offer everything that you could wish for to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
A great base to explore the island from and if you prefer to relax and take in the Caribbean way of life, then there’s no need to look any further.
La Bas Beach
Located on the north side of the bay, this sand spit offers a number of other bars by local vendors. It is reached by Captain Bravo’s ferry – go to the pier and wave and one will be with you in a few minutes if one is not already there!
La Bas is a classic picture postcard beach studded with coconut palms where you can hire sunloungers or just relax on the white sand. You can also hire kayaks and paddle boards or just swim and snorkel.
If you are feeling energetic you can walk from La Bas up to the very top of the headland – ask one of the friendly staff at Doolittles to point you in the right direction. It’s a short hike but the views at the top are worth it!
Doolittles Bar and Restaurant
Doolittles is named after the famous movie which was filmed in Marigot and is a great place to eat and try a few cocktails or an Antilles draught beer. There are pool tables if you fancy a game as well as table football within a very comfortable environment. Live music on Saturdays is a fun fixture with a variety of visiting musicians. You can also access the hill-side nature trail to the North side of the bay from here which has magnificent elevated views across the whole bay. Next door is Dive Fair Helen – a local scuba company who have really special dives down by the Pitons. They also cater for snorkelers and serve a very good lunch on board.
On the south side of the bay is one of our favourite bar/restaurants on the whole island! – Chateaux Mygo.
Owned by a local Lucian family, it has a great friendly atmosphere with regular live music and serves Creole cuisine as well as freshly made pizzas. It’s right on the water – in fact if you look down, you can see the waves below the restaurant decking as well as many fish!
Hurricane Hole Sports Bar
Many a draught beer can be enjoyed in this open-air environment whilst watching most significant global sports as well as the odd passing Super-Yacht.
JJ’S Mangrove Dockside
Another great bar and restaurant, located amongst the mangroves centered at the end of the bay with a view straight onto the bay and out to sea, it can be accessed either from the road or by ferry, offering great local cuisine.
The stylish Marina is a popular destination for private boats and yachts. Charter a yacht for the day or arrange a private boat excursion!
Around the edge of the marina there are a number of local shops, including a small convenient store, a taxi office, and several souvenir and beach wear shops. There is also a café/bar located on the water front which sells fabulous food as well as delicious ice creams! A great spot for breakfast, lunch and a cold beer on draught.
