    Closest Beach to port

    Hello everyone,

    This is our first time to St. Lucia and would like know if there is a beach within walking distance from the port or which beach is the closest and how do we get there.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to CLF.

    There isn't a beach within walking distance from where the ships docks.

    Going to hunt up something for you.

    There is also a beach Pigeon Beach -- also you would have to take a taxi there.

    Beach in front of the Hotel St Lucien is only about 15 minutes away if that by taxi. I think the beach area is called Rodney Bay.

    Top 5 St. Lucia Beaches



    Every beach on the island of St. Lucia, including those that are part of the top resorts, is open to the public. The beaches on the western side of the island front the tranquil turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and are favored for swimming and water sports, while the wild but beautiful eastern side churns with the more turbulent waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Although scenic to explore by horseback or jeep, the western beaches are not preferred for swimming.
    1. Reduit Beach

    For the most part, St. Lucian beaches are relatively short, but with five miles of white sand on Rodney Bay, Reduit is the place for a long stroll by the shore and a swim in calm waters. One of the most popular beaches on the island, it is fronted by the Rex St. Lucian, Papillon and the Royal St. Lucian hotels. There are restaurants and vendors renting water-sports equipment and lounge chairs.

    2. Jalousie Beach

    The white sand, clarity of the water, and stunning setting between the twin Gros and Petit Piton volcanic peaks make this beach south of Soufrière a favorite spot for sunning. Snorkelers and scuba divers come for the adventures to be had at the 1,800-foot dropoff at the base of the Pitons.
    3. Anse Chastanet

    With a sharp dropoff, coral reef and sea walls, this beach affords snorkelers and divers many opportunities for viewing the vivid ocean life without ferrying out to deeper waters by boat. The natural sand reflects the volcanic origins of the island.
    4. Pigeon Island National Park

    Quiet and uncrowded, this beach on the north end of the island is the place to combine sunning and swimming with a visit to a mini-museum and a climb to a vantage point to see the historic Fort Rodney ruins and views of the distant Martinique. Two eateries stand ready to fill visitor’s needs.
    5. Grande Anse

    Soon to become part of a new national park, this mile long stretch of beach north of Dennery is set against a backdrop of cliffs in an area that was once a plantation. Now, visitors come for Turtle Watch, where they can see the natural wonder of endangered leatherbacks (think Crush from “Finding Nemo”), the largest of sea turtles, heaving themselves out of the water and onto the beach to lay their eggs.

    The beach in St Lucia is not within walking distance of the port. The port is in the heart of the Capital, Castries, so you'll need to take a taxi to the beach.
