Beach recommendations?

Recommended Posts

My wife wants a chair/umbrella and access to a real bathroom.  I want beautiful, clear water to swim in.  We’re headed to the Caribbean next week and would love to know the best beach to choose.  Thanks in advance!

Away from the crowds?  

Then contact The Naked Fisherman for your day at the beach and lunch.

There is no charge for use of the beach.

The sun-beds and umberellas are for the use of a Hotel guests,, but if you take lunch, then NF has concession to obtain any spare capacity of beds, think $20.00 for two beds and an umberella.

Hence it is good to book lunch/day/beds in advance.

Or just arrive, place your towel and take drinks etc as required.

Leela - all beaches in St Lucia at public. Anyone can visit and enjoy any beach around the island.

Some have hotels built around them, but the beach is still public. Some hotels, you can patronize the restaurant or bar, rent chairs from hotel, etc. Others are AI and you'd need a day pass to use hotel facilities (this includes restrooms). 

And some have beach bars or restaurants that are not hotel affiliated, which you can enjoy at will. While still many other beaches have no facilities of any kind on them, just natural beauty!

 

Naked Fisherman by Cap Maison and the beach area is lovely. 35-45 minutes north of port, $35usd one way cab ride, and approximate 100 stairs down to the beach from the road.  Be prepared.

There's closer beaches, with no stairs, if you're just wanting a beach day. 

Vigie Beach is 10 minutes away, $10 cab ride or 20-30 minutes walk. Long long stretch of beach, chairs for rent (5 a chair), boardwalk with local restaurants and bars, clean bathrooms, etc 

Reduit Beach in Rodney Bay is very popular. Tons of restaurants and bars in the area, 2 chairs and umbrella for $20, splash water park, watersports, etc all available..

Pigeon Island beach (outside the national park), has local restaurants and bars, chairs and umbrellas, etc. Inside the national park, there's ruins, hiking, snuba, two restaurants and bars. 

Enjoy.
