Marigot Travel Guide

A delightful mixture of French and Caribbean, St Martin's capital city of Marigot is cluttered with shops, houses and people in a small area - it only has a permanent population of about 6,000. The town stretches along Marigot Bay, its main focus the harbour at the bottom of Rue de la Republique from where ferries depart to surrounding islands and fishing boats come and go.

Originally a tiny fishing village, Marigot became the capital of St Martin during the sugar boom and quickly grew. Marigot's buildings are largely colonial, sprinkled with several smart cafes, bistros, pastry shops and luxury boutiques reminiscent of mainland French market towns. There are several colonial landmarks, including Fort St Louis.

The main shopping centre in Marigot is at the southern end of the town near the harbour, which is a paradise for shopaholics with elegant stores carrying the latest designer fashions and jewellery, all tax-free. More adventurous shoppers will enjoy browsing the Wednesday and Saturday morning markets, located in a kiosk area near the port.
