The 9 Best Beachfront Hotels in St. Lucia

Jane Zarem | February 02, 2018

It’s the Caribbean, after all, and vacationers want to enjoy a great beach. As a volcanic island, geologically speaking, St. Lucia’s coast has mainly golden sand—not as dark as on some neighboring volcanic islands but not as powdery white as islands formed of coral or limestone. One exception is Sugar Beach, which has imported white sand that’s occasionally refreshed. These 9 beachfront hotels have very nice beaches, with sand that ranges from white to gold and calm surf that’s easily swimmable.
