About these ratings

There's a reason Hollywood comes calling to Marigot Bay (scenes from the original Dr. Doolittle, starring Rex Harrison and Fire Power, starring Sophia Loren, were shot here). It's because this gorgeous shore, just south of Castries along the central western coast, is idyllic Caribbean: complete with swaying palm trees, anchored yachts, and café-au-lait colored sand. Travel guides describe Marigot as romantic -- and it is true that it's more blissfully quiet than jumping Reduit -- but real-life travelers are put-off by the rampant commercialism that you'll find here. "I'm sure some people love it, but this was way too yachty for me," says one TripAdvisor user. "Every building seemed brand new and Starbucks like." Fortunately, sunbathing is free and you can visit Marigot at any hour of the day.
