I was looking for a place to relax and wind-down after experiencing a stressful time in London and the Bay Guesthouse fulfilled that need and more. It's right on the beach so you wake up looking out over the calm sea, putting you in a good mood from the moment you open your eyes. It's also a short distance from Pigeon Island National Park, which is one of the most tranquil places on the island. You have to pay $13.5 ECD to enter the park, but this means there are security guards preventing the people that sell tourists tatty jewellery (at Reduit beach).
Will and Stephanie, who own the Bay Guesthouse, are so knowledgeable about the area and told me where to get the best food (the Friday night jump-up just outside the hotel and the Saturday night Fish Fry are highly recommended). They told me where to watch live jazz (at the Jambe De Bois restaurant on Pigeon Island), country and western music (sunday nights in Gros Islet) and what activities can be done on St Lucia (snorkelling spots, catamaran tours and scuba diving)
I did two days of diving with Scuba Steve's dive centre, which is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive away from the Guesthouse and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
If you want to escape city life and find some tranquility to think then you must visit the Bay Guesthouse. A few nights there will change your perspective on life and help you to re-assess what's important to you.
