Why Is Marigot Bay Famous?

Marigot Bay is famous for its scenery. In front of you are the lapping crystal blue shores, and behind you are luscious green hills dotted with the typical architecture of the region.

It’s also well known purely for its beauty, with some even considering it the most beautiful bay in the whole of the Caribbean.

Roseau Valley Banana Plantation

Banana Plantation

Roseau Valley is the largest banana plantation on the island and is the perfect opportunity to see the process in full. Plus, you’ll get to try some of the freshest bananas you’ll ever see.

Situated next to the Roseau Valley, this scenic location was once home to a sugar plantation but has now evolved to produce some of the tasty tropical fruit that we eat every day.

The plantation itself is huge and there are plenty of tours on offer to get firsthand experience as well as picking your own bananas to take home!


With all those stunning waters around, it would be silly not to get in it! Our next Marigot Bay experience is a snorkelling adventure in St Lucia and it’s one of the most popular things to do in the area. You can hire equipment, bring your own or get yourself a guide to explore what lies beneath the Caribbean seas.

Tourists and locals alike will recommend heading to the north of the bay into the coves. The shallow waters here are great for children, meaning the whole family can get involved and create some great memories.
