Nestled off the road from Marigot to Colombier, Friar’s, as it is commonly referred to, is a family oriented beach with calm waters and a beautiful view of the neighboring island of Anguilla.
The boardwalk at Great Bay makes this spot a real attraction with restaurants, beach bars, and watersports vendors lining the way.
Getting to this beach will awaken your inner explorer. With no entrance of its own, Happy Bay can be reached by parking at Friar’s Bay and hiking about 10 minutes over a nearby bluff.
If you are looking to spend an entire day at the beach, then Pinel is the place. A five-minute ferry (US $7 per person) takes you from French Cul-de-Sac to this tiny beach island.
For those who prefer a quieter and less-developed place, Le Galion is perfect. It’s also an excellent family destination with food, chairs, umbrellas, and watersports equipment.
