A beach isn't just a beach in Saint Lucia... April 10, 2018

The beach plays an important part in any tropical Caribbean holiday and we all know that ‘a beach is not just a beach!’ There are many different kinds of beach, from long stretches of palm-fringed sands to small, private coves.

The island of Saint Lucia has been blessed with many beautiful beaches and a variety of different coloured sands. Visitors to the naturally beautiful island of Saint Lucia can sample black volcanic sand around the stunning Piton Mountains in the south; soft, golden sands dotted with authentic beach bars in the north; and white sandy beaches with designer sun loungers and hotel staff eager to serve fruity cocktails.

Explore all the hues of sandy beaches in Saint Lucia using our handy guide:

PIGEON ISLAND NATIONAL PARK BEACH


Hop in a water taxi from Rodney Bay or drive on the causeway to the pair of idyllic and tranquil sandy strips on the protected, southern side of Pigeon Island. You’ll find sun loungers to rent and the atmospheric waterfront café. The beach is also a great place to relax and catch your breath after exploring the old fort at the top of Pigeon Island.

SMUGGLER’S COVE

A long flight of wooden steps takes you down to this enchanting, cliff-backed cove of tawny sand, hidden away near the northern tip of the island alongside the upmarket Cap Maison hotel. The snorkelling is excellent, plus there’s an amazing beachfront restaurant and bar called the ‘Naked Fishermen’! 

ANSE CHASTANET BEACH


Just north of Soufriere, this memorable volcanic sand beach is surrounded by steep, forested hillsides. It is a focal point for the Anse Chastanet Resort, and visitors can use all of the hotel’s excellent facilities – the bay is one of Saint Lucia’s best places for snorkelling.

REDUIT BEACH

Lined by low-rise hotels, this mile of fine golden sand is Saint Lucia’s liveliest and most popular beach. The water is usually calm and perfect for swimming, all sorts of watersports are available, and there are inviting beachfront bars to settle in with a cocktail - the sunsets here can be amazing.

ANSE DES PITONS



One of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful beaches anywhere in the Caribbean, with a crescent of white sand set dramatically between the soaring Pitons, Anse Des Pitons is overseen by the luxurious Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, but anyone can visit.
