St Lucia Beaches are different from one another.Some have gray sand, some black sand and some white powdered sand. But one thing is common to them.
They are exotic beaches surrounded by awe inspiring views of this lovely island.The beaches are also home of many St Lucia Resorts where you can spend your All Inclusive Vacations.
The World Renowned Anse Chastanet Beach in St Lucia
Here I am describing the Beaches of St Lucia. We have been to St Lucia a few times during the years and every time we like it more.
The people are sweet and service oriented and you cannot ask for a better service in the resorts. You’ll find that many beaches offer an array of Caribbean Sports ranging from Caribbean Snorkeling and Scuba Diving to Beach volley ball and Horse Riding.
Exotic deserted beach in Pigeon Island St Lucia
St Lucia Beaches on the Northwest Coast
Pigeon Island is connected to the mainland with a causeway. It is now a recreational area with beaches and picnic areas.
Reduit Beach in this area, is well known for its long stretch of white sandy beach with enough greenery for shade. There are many hotels lined through the beach that provide rental equipment for all kind of Caribbean Sports. Going north you keep seeing just sand and beach until you get to Pigeons Island. This beach is very popular with locals on the weekend.

This long stretch of sandy beaches and coconut palm trees is close to Castries, the capital and the major hotels and resorts.
This is an ideal beach for families with small children due to its calm waters. Here you can rent all kind of sports equipment. The Gablewood shopping center is located not far from here.
It is a popular beach with locals with great sand an lots of shade. It is located parallel to the airport near Castries.
A great beach situated between the Landings Resort and the East Winds Inn. I would say that this is the perfect Romantic Getaway in St Lucia Beaches. It is bordered by green lush mountains and the beach is bordered by palm trees. There are some deserted beaches there as well as anchorage for Yachts.
There are many impressive coves great for St Lucia Diving

Due to its constant Trade Winds this beach is ideal for windsurfing. You may rent a surfing board and even take lessons on this beach. Kayaks are also available for rent.
Anse de Sables This beach is looking out to the Maria Islands. It is very windy and therefore great for surfing. The wind surf center of Club Aquarius is located here.
Jalousie Beach on the slopes of the Pitons in St Lucia
This extremely beautiful beach is where the Hilton is located and where we stayed last time. The beach use to be gray, but the hotel imported white beach to cover them.
Anse Des Pitons
This is a beach to relax at the foot of the Pitons. It is crescent shaped beach situated actually between the Gros Piton and the Petit Piton
Anse De Sable
It is worth the drive to this spectacular beach. It is never so crowded and very accessible
Ladera Resort in St Lucia
As in many of the islands, the Atlantic Coast is windy and the beaches are rough. I don’t recommend swimming but it is worth the visit for the spectacular views. Some of the beaches are difficult to reach with regular vehicles. You may need a 4-wheel drive. This area is also important for naturists and bird watchers.
It is a unique experience because of the outstanding views. You have to walk from Gros Islet, but the walk if worth it.
You cannot drive to this beach. The walk from Desbarra is about a 3 hour treck. Once you arrive you’ll discover a beautiful secluded beach. Watching the waves hit the cliffs is a show by itself. Here you are surrounded by the La Sorciere Mountains.
