North or south

Going to St Lucia in Feb 2009 arriving at Hewanorra Airport.

A lot of the resorts are about 1 hour drive away - any suggestions about nice beaches/accommodation etc.closer to the airport. Interested in swimming/diving and relaxing.

Closest resort to airport is Coconut Bay. It's right across the street. Otherwise you must travel some distance to get to any.

St. Lucia is a lush, tropical Mountainous Volcanic Island. The Island is only 27 miles long, but because of all the hair pin turns. It takes several hours to get from one end to the other. The areas North & South are very different experiences. The North is more commercialized with larger hotels and party atmosphere while the south has the true Island feel and the hotels are very isolated. You can not leave without a taxi. The south of the Island is more picturesque than the North. The south has the diving and snorkeling.
