The Apartment is very well equipped, there was nothing we needed that we weren't able to find. It was very clean, well presented and furnished to a high standard. The location of the apartment provides amazing views... We got up in the morning, picked up breakfast from the cafe in the square, came back to the balcony and sat overlooking the bay, watching the boats come and go.
The location of the apartment also gave us ample opportunity to do a wide range of activities throughout the week... We spent a lot of time on the beach across the bay, with the friendly staff making sure we didn't have to move a muscle.
After booking the excursion at the shop in the square, we spent a day whale watching, with great results. We were lucky enough to see everything... Seals, Dolphins and Humpback / Sperm Whales, they can be found year-round in the Caribbean.
Another day was spent with Kayaks in the bay and the surrounding waters. You're seemingly free to travel as far as your rent time allows. An hour is long enough to travel out of the bay and left or right to visit the small uninhabited beaches / alcoves.
We also took a taxi and visited Gros Islet, to spend a couple of hours horse riding through a small village, down the beach and then in to the sea before finishing the day by eating in the Big Chef Steakhouse - Fantastic food.
The various restaurants and cafes in Marigot Bay are all great, but the best of them all, in my opinion, is the Rainforest Hideaway, it's across the bay and is accessed by the free ferry that will take you upon request. Sitting on the dock, under the forest canopy, and being able to watch the schools of fish swimming underneath is an unbeatable atmosphere. The food is equally incredible.
I hope to return to St Lucia and, more specifically, this apartment as soon as possible.
