Highlight for me was watching the locals ride horses in the sea on sunday and seeing all the local kids backflipping into the sea. lovely warm water.

The spanish reviewer posted the wrong photo for this beach which is actually called Vigie Beach. The photo is of a sewer line outflow into the Castries Harbour near the vendors market in the town of Castries which is nowhere near Vigie Beach. I have posted my own photos of Vigie Beach taken just last month.

This is a sandy beach and not crowded which we liked. there are a few locals selling beads, necklaces and items made from reeds but they didn't bother us. A polite no thank you is ok.

our resort Rendezvous was on Malabar beach. It has great swimming and you can go for long walks. You can see the ship come and go from the harbor

It's a beautiful beach and it's nice that the beaches in St Lucia are public and you don't fell like you are depriving the local people of something they should have access to.

I like the fact that locals and families can access and use the beach along with guests. Hotel facilities are of course limited to paying guests but the adjacent beach should be enjoyed by all.

Beach nice, but a cemetery borders it, and it is immediately next to a small regional airport with frequent small aircraft noise. We were warned not to walk at night past a particular spot.
