Long recognised as one of the Caribbean’s most secure anchoring spots, Marigot Bay provides protection to ships from all over the world. Known as a ‘hurricane hole’, Marigot Bay Marina is surrounded by mountains which protect it from tidal changes and destructive weather.
Deep enough to accommodate some of the world’s largest superyachts, Marigot Bay Marina is chosen as a start and drop off point by many yacht charter guests who benefit from direct flights to the island from the US, UK and Canada. All our marina guests have complimentary access to Marigot Bay Resort and its amenities including the pool area, spa, restaurants and fitness suite – just one of the perks of tying up at Marigot Bay Marina which you can read about in this newsletter.
Saint Lucia’s long-standing International Billfish Tournament is coming at the end of October, while the yachting season starts in earnest by November, with the Saint Lucia Yacht Club hosting its annual Mango Bowl Regatta, welcoming dozens of boats from the islands in the southern Caribbean such as Martinique, Barbados and Grenada. Around the same time, the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers – known globally as ARC – departs from Las Palmas in the Canary Islands, and this is the thirtieth year that Rodney Bay in Saint Lucia has been the finish line.
October is also the month of International Creole Day, celebrated on the last Sunday of the month across Saint Lucia and the rest of the Creole world. This year, Marigot Bay Resort looks forward to welcoming tout moun to celebrate the flavours and traditions of our French and English heritage on October 26th at our special event, Kweyol En Mygo.
And last but by no means least, the owners, management and staff of Marigot Bay Resort, Spa and Marina are delighted to welcome Daniel Echasseriau as Director of Food & Beverage and Culinary Operation. A native of Brittany, France, Mr. Echasseriau has extensive experience in the Caribbean and beyond, so we’re excited to have him bring something new to the table as we head from Fall to Winter.
