Bon jou suz64,
Coconut Bay Resort is at the north end of Anse des Sables / Sandy Beach with the Maria Islands (Major & Minor) off-shore.
You can walk from North to South (Vieux Fort for shops, farmer's market, restaurants...) all along AdS / SB... fisherfolk, sea grape trees, local food, sea birds, St. Lucia National Trust Museum, Reef Kite/Wind Surf Center and more...
AdS / SB has good conditions for swimming, kayaking.
Be advised... the Maria Islands are a St. Lucia National Trust Nature Reserve.
All visitors must arrange with the SLNT for a guided land tour (incl. boat transport). that can, also, include snorkling.
Bless up! Paul
