The Basics

Set in a lush, tropical valley that sweeps down to Marquis Bay, this spectacular colonial-era 500-acre (202-hectare) property takes visitors on a trip back in time, with preserved ruins of an old sugar mill, water wheel, slave quarters, and a vintage locomotive. Travelers may tour the plantation grounds on an exciting ATV eco-adventure, blazing down nature trails through rural farm communities and past historical sights to Grande Anse Beach along the rugged Atlantic coast.

When to Get There

The estate is open daily year-round. Tours run between 8:30am and 6pm. Come early to beat the crowds. Between March and August, it’s possible to have a peak at the leatherback and hawksbill turtles who use Marquis Bay as a nesting site. During this time, a guide offers information on researchers' efforts to track the turtles and their offspring.

Wildcard

Rain or Shine? Because ATVs are open vehicles, travelers are exposed to the elements. Unless there’s a big storm, however, tours generally continue through inclement weather. If it’s a dry day, expect dirt and dust. And when it’s raining, expect muddy sprays. St. Lucia’s rainy season is between June and November.
