Hello everyone, I was in St. Lucia on 3/1 on the Norwegian Gem. We had to tender in bc there was no dock space. I set up a reservation with Castro for the taxi, chairs and a couple of beers. We get there go through the welcome shops and head outside looking for our driver. Didn’t see our name anywhere with a driver... we wait a half hour then decided to just take our own taxi to vigie beach. One we get there the taxi dropped us off at the end and I saw Castro’s sign in the middle of the beach. We walk to the middle and we meet Castro. Castro is a very nice guy and catered to us the whole day. I asked him what happend to the cab/driver and he said he went to the wrong spot and picked up different people and brought them to the beach.... we got chairs from Castro and he set us up right in front of the water. It was a cloudy day and the water was rough but im sure if it was a nice day this would have been a great beach and the water would have been more calm. So Castro brought us out some beers and set us up in front of the water. It then started raining and Castro immediately set us up with an umbrella which was very nice. We then asked him where the restroom was and he showed us. This part I didn’t like - $1US each time you have to use the bathroom. Every island I have been on in the Caribbean I have never paid to use a restroom. I think it was kind of their loss because i would have drank more if I didn’t have to pay each time I used the restroom. Again I know beers here are only $2US but it was just the point that I had to pay every time I used the restroom that I didn’t like... Overall Vigie beach was a nice beach and Castro was a legit and nice guy. I wish we had a nicer day there but I can’t control Mother Nature. If anyone has any questions let me know... to the poster above me I did not see any WiFi on vigie beach. I also have some pictures and videos but I am not sure how or if I can post them on here from my phone...

Just back from Vigie. Loved it. Very pretty and relaxing beach with chair rentals, natural shade and food/drink. It is also closer to the cruise port than other beaches. Would go back there again in a heartbeat.

Ok folks we are confused. My wife and her daughter will be in St. Lucia later this month and the Vigie Beach seems to be getting huge, positive reviews. We looked at Trip Advisor but they only had one option. Did you folk arrange a private tour to the beach or how did you schedule it and with whom?

 

Any thoughts are reeeeeeealy appreciated.

You don't need a tour or to schedule anything. As you can see from the multiple comments in this thread, it's just a few minutes from port. $10/10 minutes cab ride or 20-30 minute walk.

Chairs available around $5 or so a chair, no umbrellas needed due to all the natural shade, Boardwalk with restaurants and bars for drinks, etc. Absolutely no tour or organized anything needed just head on over. Be sure the driver takes you all the way down to the Boardwalk..

I was very frustrated the last time I was on St. Lucia. I told the taxi guy that we wanted to go to Vigie beach, but he talked us into another beach, I think its Redondo??? HATED it. It was a long ride, there was no natural shade, the sea was so rough they wouldn't let you swim, and the vendors were relentless. I had to tell the guy selling pot to F*** OFF a few times. Do NOT let them talk you out of going to Vigie if you want to go to a beach close by.

Gopher, Did you enjoy it? It is something we are considering for our October cruise and I would love to hear your thoughts. We are a large group (12 to 14) so I plan on arranging for group transportation rather than struggle with cabs/vans at the port.

What is the route from the cruiseport to walk to Vigie Beach? Is it a safe walk?

 

Sent from my Pixel 2 using Forums mobile app

It's a safe easy flat walk.

If at Pointe Seraphine, head out of cruise port following access road. When you get to the main highway (next to gad station) hang a left, walk towards airport. When you get to the airport, turn right, follow sidewalk to roundabout. Turn left around end if airport, follow it around, left again down road and walk on down - past graveyard, etc till you reach the Boardwalk area (across from entrance to airport). Usually around 20-30 minutes, give or take .

 

From LA Place Caranage, exit two story shopoing area, hang a left, walk along road and follow the and if the bay, veering to your left. When you get to where the road splits (4 way traffic light, but the light doesn't work), keep to the left, following the bay. One side Bay, one side Castries Craft market. Follow the road along the bay till you get to gas station as listed above... And follow above directions. At least 30 minutes from LA Place Caranage..

 

It's virtually impossible to get lost - the airport is a major landmark . Lol..
