Malabar beach is very attractive (ignore the picture posted on TA as representative of it - it's far superior to that!!). Popular with locals at weekends which can add to its charm.

Waves roll in and churn the sand up even on a fairly still day, so although it makes for a gentle slope and easy access for swimming there is nothing to see under the waves. If you want scuba or snorkelling and are staying at rendezvous there are coves and bays just a few miles away. Although Castries is close... More

It's nice that this is a public beach, which is clean and beautiful. Not rocky whatsoever either which was nice

We enjoyed lunch and dinner here. The choice was amazing and the flavours more so. The only downside being the need to 'veg' out for hours on a sun-bed due to over indulgence!

Just had 10 days at Rendezvous resort which is right on Malabar beach and spend many happy hours walking in the surf. Locals claim it to be 2 miles long which seems a bit optimistic but it's a decent walk end to end. The sand is clean and ideal for bare feet and when it gets too hot the water... More

Safe bathing and a nice long beach. Short walk from the cruise terminal. Can get busy with locals at weekends and holidays though.

Choc Bay, just north of Castries with Malabar and Vigie Beaches, along the grave yard stretching north past The Wharf Restaurant; THIEVES are working this area, sometimes a single male who grabs whatever he can such as bags & flip flops; or two fellows, one distracts you by being very friendly while the other grabs your stuff and runs; sometimes...
