Cocunut Beach resort. Fort Vieux St Lucia; Public Buses/Excursions

We have booked a 10 day holiday next March at the Coconut Beach resort Hotel (Adult only section )in Fort Vieux St Lucia . We are wondering if anyone can give us advise about public transport/buses to other part of the island. Also what excursions we should take to visit place of interest.Is there a web site we can find a list of excursions and the approximate cost. We do not really want any boat trips.Also we understand the beach at Fort Vieux is rather "Naff" and the sea is rough. Is this the case in March or only at certain times of the year. Any relies will be greatly appreciated

For excursions try www.sunlinktours.com

We loved the jeep excursion and the Island tour.

St. Lucia is not known for great beaches or snorkeling, but the topogrpahy is gorgeous.

The beach at Vieux Fort is not naff, it's located on the Atlantic side of the island meaning the sea is rougher than the Caribbean side.

I would not rely on public transport, we rent a jeep from the airport on arrival and keep it the whole time so we can do our own excursions.

There is a marine reserve at Anse Chastanet which offers good snorkelling and also by Anse Cochon, both popular excursion spots, and the beaches are rather good for swimming in this area as well.
