The only resort in Vieux Fort, Coconut Bay is a sprawling (85 acres), family-friendly, seaside retreat minutes from Hewanorra International Airport. The ocean views are beautiful, and the beach has lovely white sand; but the resort faces the Atlantic Ocean, so swimming in the sea is restricted to an area protected by a manmade reef. Kitesurfing, however, is a huge attraction here. Other ways to get wet include three swimming pools and a water park with a lazy river, waterslides, and swim-up bar. The resort is divided into two sections: Harmony is restricted to adults; Splash, on the opposite side of the property, is a tropical playground for families with kids. The Maria Islands are just offshore, and St. Lucia's Pitons and other natural attractions in Soufrière are 45 minutes away by car. Otherwise, you'll have to be content with the activities at the resort—four restaurants, a full-service spa, and plenty of space to relax and socialize.
