Flanked by coconut palms, Marigot Beach is part of the Marine Nature Reserve meaning fishing is prohibited. The sea is normally gentle and teeming with tropical fish making it a great spot for swimming, snorkeling, sailing and diving. However, it is only a small stretch of sand and that tends to almost vanish in high tide. Fortunately, there is another larger beach "next door" where sunbathers can retreat to.
After a day on the beach or sight seeing, the ideal way to end the day is to return to your own condo or villa rental, light up the BBQ, watch the amazing sunsets and dine under the stars.
