Jalousie Hilton Beaches

Could someone tell me about the beaches at the Jalousie Hilton. Is there good snorkeling? How far is the beach from most of the villas? Are there other places to snorkel on St Lucia that could be easily driven to for a days outing. Thanks

Snorkling at Jalouise was great and the beach is beautiful. The beach is quite a walk from most of the villas but there is a taxi that comes along every few minutes that takes you around the resort. As for other snorkling around the island, just ask the conceirge at Jalouise. They are so helpful and will set up any day trip for you.

Snorkeling is good, with an area next to Petit Pition set aside for snorkeling (i.e no boats etc). You can bring your own gear, or borrow some from the hotels water sport centre on the beach.

We found the best snorkeling to be at the north entrance to Marigot Bay. This snorkeling was WAY better than Anse Chastenet in our opinion. We were able to rent snorkeling equipment near Doolittle’s restaurant which is very close to the snorkeling area. Not sure if you have to stay at the resort there to rent. There were no other snorkelers there (this was low season, however) nor had I ever heard of anyone snorkeling there. I’m guessing they don’t advertise this spot much because it’s shallow and you’re floating (swimming) right above the area and could cause damage. This spot is also great because you can see everything really well without having to dive down. Can’t remember exactly where Marigot is from Jalousie but I’d bet it’s not too long if you take a water taxi. Don’t get me wrong, while the snorkeling is not the best in the world, we found it to be the best in St. Lucia (of the places we visited).

The beach is beautiful but not very large. Go down early to reserve a spot under one of the tiki huts by placing some of your belongings (towels) on a chair. The snorkeling, although not the best we have done is very convenient. It is right next to the beach, there is no additional cost, and there are no boats to contend with. I t is especially good for beginners and children.
