Latitude 13 58 N / Longitude 61 01 W One of the most picturesque spots in all the Caribbean Marigot Bay is another naturally deep harbour and once served as a vital wartime base. It is said that the British once ambushed the French by camouflaging their fleet with palm fronds. The harbor is so deep and sheltered that the British fleet supposedly hid here from the French by covering their masts with palm fronds. In April 1794 Queen Victoria s father the Duke of Kent landed here with grenadiers to wrest the island from French hands. Now a haven for yachting Marigot is a most incredibly relaxing stop with excellent dining and world class accommodation. If she looks at all familiar perhaps you recognize this beauty from her stint in Hollywood having been featured in a number of films including the original Dr. Doolittle. Marigot is a French Antilles word for river which runs into wetlands by the sea.
