Fodor's Review

This is one of the prettiest natural harbors in the Caribbean. In 1778, British admiral Samuel Barrington sailed into this secluded bay-within-a-bay and, the story goes, covered his ships with palm fronds to hide them from the French. Today this small community, just 4 miles (7 km) south of Castries, is a favorite anchorage for boaters and a peaceful destination for landlubbers, with a luxury resort, several small inns and restaurants, and a marina village with a snack shop, grocery store, and boutiques. A 24-hour ferry (EC$5 round-trip) connects the bay's two shores—a voyage that takes a minute or so each way.
