If you are looking to get away from the crowds and prefer an unfettered view of the ocean, Fond Bay Suites and Villa is the place to be! It is a bit tricky to find the first time (look for the SECOND Escap Development entrance on the right just beyond the first one with the closed gate) but if you miss it, stop by the Fox Grove Inn (just about a 5 minute ride beyond the Escap Development entrance), the food is fabulous and they can give you directions. Fond Bay also offers fabulous home cooked meals, from a limited menu, really great jerk chicken! Fond Bay is super clean, private and quiet with gorgeous views of the beach. We rented a car and drove all over the island but we were always happy to return to our quiet and clean villa. It’s about a 10 minute walk to the beach (where we were COMPLETELY alone). We also enjoyed the lookout points above the beach.
Most of the tourist stuff is on the opposite side of the island (west and north west point). It’s about an 60 minute ride to Rodney Bay and an additional 15 minutes to Pigeon Point if you take the road north. Going south back toward the airport it’s about 60 minutes to Sulfur Springs and Drive Thru Volcano. A few more minutes and you are in Soufriere… where you can take a water taxi to Anse Chasnet to snorkel or dive.. The road between Soufriere and Castries can be a bit harrowing for drivers from the US. Keep in mind the “wrong” side of the road, “wrong” side of the car and add to that the road is narrow and windy with some steep drops and open rain gutters.. It adds some time to the commute but it was a cool experience - AFTER the fact.
