This is the most intimate and low-key of the three Sandals resorts on St. Lucia; like the others, it's beachfront, all-inclusive, for couples only, and loaded with amenities and activities. And it's just 10 minutes north of downtown Castries. Learn something new—perhaps sailing, windsurfing, or waterskiing; enjoy the sea and any of the three pools; or play a game of croquet, table tennis, or billiards. There are a half-dozen fine-dining options: Bayside serves three meals daily, inside or outside. Beach Bistro serves grilled specials and snacks all day long. Mario's specializes in northern Italian cuisine. Kimono's specializes in Asian cuisine, while Soy is a sushi bar. And Kelly's Dockside Seaside Bar & Grill, which is perched on a 150-foot pier on the waterfront, is the place to go for seafood. Then, of course, there are several bars—good places to meet and greet new friends. Still looking for something to do? An hourly shuttle connects the sister properties, so you can stay at one—but play (and eat) at three. And the low-rise architecture at Halcyon is entirely friendly to the physically challenged.
