Choc Bay, just north of Castries with Malabar and Vigie Beaches, along the grave yard stretching north past The Wharf Restaurant; THIEVES are working this area, sometimes a single male who grabs whatever he can such as bags & flip flops; or two fellows, one distracts you by being very friendly while the other grabs your stuff and runs; sometimes...

A lovely beach, popular with locals, especially at weekends but never busy. There is a cemetery and small airfield running alongside part of the beach but this just adds to the charm in my opinion. Some shade can be found under old trees beside the cemetery. The water looked clean and entry to the sea was easy without stones or... More

so there are locals walking about; there may be lots of children on the beach weekends when they are out of school, but security keeps them at bay and won't let them bother the resort customers. can walk for quite a ways south, not so much north.

Lovely beach for swimming and walking but beware. While we were walking...in broad daylight, between noon and 1:00....our car was broken into and many valuables stolen.

So what do you do when it rains in St Lucia, go for a walk on the beach. Lovely long sandy beach. No beach bars or restaurant but used by the locals where we often saw people running or swimming or just enjoying a family day out.

The spanish reviewer posted the wrong photo for this beach which is actually called Vigie Beach. The photo is of a sewer line outflow into the Castries Harbour near the vendors market in the town of Castries which is nowhere near Vigie Beach. I have posted my own photos of Vigie Beach taken just last month.
