Short Description: 

Marigot Bay is located on the west coast of Saint Lucia, 3.75 miles southwest from the capital city of Castries.

Long Description:

According to Wikipedia:

"The American novelist James A. Michener famously described Marigot Bay as "The most beautiful bay in the Caribbean."

"The all-girl trio Arabesque featured a song 'Marigot Bay' appearing on the album of the same name in 1980."

It is a song about dreaming about a lost love and their experience on the beach at Marigot Bay.

Musician: Arabesque


Each night I dream
The same old dream
I cannot forget it seems
The beach where I found you
Where I lost you too
I see the strand
The silv'ry sand
We are going hand in hand
Like we used to do
Like we used to do

Marigot Bay
Paradise of the blue lagoon
Tell me, why you are haunting me
By night and by day
Marigot Bay
Paradise of the blue lagoon
Where my heart was all aflame
I will never forget your name
Oh, Marigot Bay

You said to me:
You must believe
Darling that I've never been
So in love before
So in love before
Our love was strong
That nights were long
But one morning you were gone
Gone for ever more

Gone for ever more
