Introduction

Marigot is the capital of Saint Martin, the French part of the Caribbean island that is shared with the Dutch. They call their part Sint Maarten, one of the Netherlands Antilles.

Weather

Marigot has a hot and humid tropical climate with average daytime temperatures between 28 and 30 degrees Celcius and average nights around 23 degrees Celcius. Most rain falls between June and October with a chance of hurricanes from August onwards. Therefore, the drier (and slightly cooler) December to April period is the best time to visit weatherwise. Unfortunately prices rise sharply during this period and the months of November and May still have good weather. So budgetwise these latter months may be a good option as well.

Getting There

By Boat

In season, ferries operated by the Anguilla Ferry System run between the islands of Anguilla and Marigot. They leave daily between 7am and 7pm roughly every 20 minutes between Blowing Point (Anguilla) and Marigot on the French part of St. Maarten/St. Martin.
There are possibilities to go by ferry from Marigot to Saint Barthélemy. The MV Voyager travels two times daily between Marigot to Gustavia, except on Wednesdays and Sundays, when it leaves from Oyster Pond on Sint Maarten. It takes about 75 minutes from Marigot.
