Situated in the fabulous Caribbean yacht charter destination – Saint Lucia, the prestigious Capella Marina at Marigot Bay will present the sweet sounds of music and the Caribbean spirit with the 2014 Jazz on the Bay Festival. To coincide with Saint Lucia’s 23rd Annual Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival, visitors and locals alike will celebrate the rich music history of Saint Lucia, dance, spa specials, poetry, arts and crafts, as well as savor some of the island’s best dishes at the Capella Marina.
