Travelling to St Lucia in a couple of weeks and would love to go to Cas-en-Bas beach. I grew up on the island and loved that beach, but although I've visited the island often since I moved away, I haven't been back to that beach in about 10 years. Probably not since before the hotel was built there (is there one? I remember the land being cleared and construction materials being stocked, but never saw any of the actual construction). Back in the day, it was a must to drive there in a jeep, whether you went through Cap Estate or opposite the Gros-Islet gap. I'll be renting a car, not a jeep, and heard that the roads both sides are better, but how much better?
