Shoal Bay East
Close your eyes and imagine the quintessential Caribbean stretch of white-sand beach. You’ve just pictured Shoal Bay East, a 2-mile-long beach with pristine sand, thoughtfully placed reefs ideal for snorkeling, and glassy turquoise water. Shoal Bay Scuba is a professional diving operation with high-quality equipment, good boats and a staff of well-trained divemasters.
Deep, sheltered Marigot Bay is an exquisite example of natural architecture. Sheltered by towering palms and the surrounding hills, the narrow inlet is said to have once hidden the entire British fleet from French pursuers. Yachts play the same trick these days – the bay is a popular place to drop anchor and hide away for a few nights. Enjoy nearby beaches.
Anse de Gouverneur
Anse de Gouverneur is a gorgeous, sandy beach lining a U-shaped bay that’s embraced by high cliffs at both ends. It’s one of the broadest and most secluded spots in the region, and it’s splendid for sunbathing and picnics. The lack of visitors – even in high season – means you’ll often see sunbathers in their birthday suits.
