Best Beach to visit for the day

We are stopping in St. Lucia for a day on a cruise and would like to know the best beach for us to visit while we are there. And please give any recommendations on bars, restaurants, etc.

Thank you

St. Lucia is not known for its beaches. We are a volcanic, mountainous, reanforest island - our beaches tend toward smaller stretches and coves, with light tan to black sand.

That said, if all you want is a beach with bars/restaurants, head to Rodney Bay for Reduit Beach. Longish stretch of beach with swimmable waters, watersports for hire, chairs/umbrellas for rent and lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance, with Spinnakers right on the beach.

Given St. Lucia's unique topography and beauty, do consider a signature land/sea tour which includes banana plantations, Marigot Bay, waterfall, volcano, beach time and return by sea for the spectacular coastline.

Enjoy your visit!

Bon jou Rachel H,

Hire a private land taxi for the day. The friendly & knowledgeable owner-operator doubles as trained tour guide & island insider.

Ask him/her for an Island Beach Tour- negotiate the fare (+/- USD 200/up to 4 people) and experience beautiful off-the-track Caribbean & Atlantic coast beaches...

We recommend the lovely & lively Cecilia Taxi Services celia_127@hotmail.com...

Bless up! Paul
