We were advised by one of the locals to head to Sandy beach. Staying in the Soufriere area and glad we made the drive. The water was incredibly nice, and save a handful of local residents and a few tourists, empty. At lunchtime we ate at Reef Bar. Reallu reasonable and very nice to get away from the crazy prices...

We were staying on the east side of the island in Micoud and Sandy Beach was the most accessible beach for us. On the first day we rented our beds from Marcus. Easy to find just walk to the beach from the reef bar and the beds are the only ones there. Marcus will also help get drinks from the... More

The fact that this beautiful beach is just a short drive from the airport is fantastic as we were able to go for some sun and swimming before our flight home. Water was a bit cooler and wavier than Caribbean side of the island, but not substantially so. Nice that it feels so remote, and has a different look than... More

Loved visiting this beach as it is a great spot to relax with many parts/areas for privacy, people watching, kiteboarding and sailing.

We always stop here on our way in and out of St Lucia via Vieux Fort...its close to the airport, the water is a bit rough due to being on the Atlantic so not the best for weak swimmers or small children who could get swept out. Great spot to windsurf though...very few people and theres a great little bar/resto... More

The beach is always windy but you can swim in the waters among the waves. You have restaurants and cafes where you can rent chairs and have lunch or dinner. We spent a lot of time there and loved it.

Not your average Caribbean beach maybe, but it's a long lovely beach fringed by a mix of seagrape trees and sand vines, with water that is most often lovely blue. There is a fairly strong current but it is also fairly shallow - when you swim here, you feel relaxed and massaged afterward!

Best beach to have a bbq in the southern part of then island. Its close to shopping centers in the town of Vieux Fort. Lots of shade from the trees which is convenient for setting up a grill and for parking your vehicle.
