Friar´s Bay (also called "Anse des Pères"), North of the French capital Marigot, is a pretty, small, family oriented beach. The bay is well protected from the swells, and attracts also a few boats. For its calm waters, Friar´s Bay is an ideal beach for families.

The large location, Friar´s Bay Beach Café, has live music on Sundays from 6.00 to 9.00pm and offers late lunch from 12 noon to 5pm. Spending a day at Friar´s Bay can be fun for all family members!

Once you get there, you will see the beach restaurants at both sides of the bay, and the small beach in between. But there are not many people either. Especially on weekdays it is a very quiet beach as mostly local people go to this beach on Sunday only.

Villa Canoua on Happy Bay is our most popular rental villa on St. Martin and St. Maarten!

To get there, take the main road N7 from Marigot heading North towards Grand Case. A few miles off Marigot, follow the sign for Friar´s Bay and its restaurants, and turn left onto the dirt road. The ride will get a bit rough and bumpy at the end....
