St. Martin and St. Maarten Sights

Baie des Pères (Friars Bay)

Fodor's Review

This quiet cove close to Marigot has beach grills and bars, with chaises and umbrellas, calm waters, and a lovely view of Anguilla. Kali's Beach Bar, open daily for lunch and (weather permitting) dinner, has a Rasta vibe and color scheme—it's the best place to be on the full moon, with music, dancing, and a huge bonfire, but you can get lunch, beach chairs, and umbrellas any time. Friar's Bay Beach Café is a French Bistro on the sand, open from breakfast to sunset.

To get to the beach, take National Road 7 from Marigot, go toward Grand Case to the Morne Valois hill, and turn left on the dead-end road at the sign. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: partiers; swimming; walking.
