St. Martin Parish Tourist Commission
From the Bayou Teche to the Atchafalaya Basin, St. Martin Parish is a picturesque and bountiful region. Rich in agricultural, visitors are taken through sugar cane fields, low-lying swamp land, and rolling lands of beauty. Majestic live oaks, draped with moss, are scattered along roadways. Bald cypress trees and their unique stumps abound. Where's the water? Nearly 123 miles of flowing water beginning at Bayou Courtableau in St. Landry Parish and joining the the Atchafalaya in lower St. Mary Parish, the Bayou Teche winds its way through St. Martin Parish, from Breaux Bridge to St. Martinville and beyond. Then, imagine flowing gently through a maze of darkness and being enveloped by the mysterious and murky water of an endless winding watercourse of rivers and lakes. You've just entered the Atchafalaya Basin Swamp. From dancing to shopping to exploring nature, we have a variety of activities for your enjoyment; and from houseboats to boutique hotels, we have accomodations to meet every traveller’s needs. With the distinctive designations of ”Gateway to the Atchafalaya Basin,” “Home of Longfellow’s Evangeline” and “The Crawfish Capital of the World,” St, Martin Parish is a place like none other. See for yourself, and experience the difference!
