It’s unquestionably one of the most naturally beautiful islands in the Caribbean. But when you think about Saint Lucia, the beach isn’t often the first thing that comes to mind. Indeed, many of the island’s most noteworthy places to stay aren’t actually on the beach, like three-walled hillside retreats like Ladera or Jade Mountain and rainforest eco-hotels like Fond Doux and Boucan.
But Saint Lucia is home to some rather beautiful stretches of sand — and the hotels to match.
Here are our eight favorite beachfront resorts in Saint Lucia.
The Landings Resort and Spa It’s arguably the most complete resort in Saint Lucia, and this superb property on the northwestern coast of the island is also blessed with a spectacular beachfront location. But it’s also a residential resort – with a mix of one, two and three-bedroom villa suites that offer the comfort of your own private villa and the convenience of a luxury hotel. And in the new age of tourism, that’s become one of the biggest priorities for today’s travelers.
