St Lucia snorkeling

Recommended Posts

We will be in St Lucia tomorrow and our catamaran cruise got cancelled.  Is there a good beach to go snorkeling at?

Antigua yesterday was to rough from storms.   Advice?

Most snorkeling is in the southwest of the island, a good 60-90 minutes from the cruise port.  Starting at about Anse Cochon, where To Kaye is located and working your way down the coast through Soufriere and Choisel into Laborie.  

Taxis run $90usd one way to Soufriere (home of the iconic Pitons, volcano, mud baths, waterfalls, etc).  I'd suggest Soufriere Beach Park, which has facilities, palapas, chairs, great snorkeling along the cliff side, bars and restaurants, etc 

If you want to stay up north, the only reefs are a small system right around Pigeon Island. An hour at most, if snorkelling.  PI is great, with ruins, hikes, beach, restaurants and bars, etc. 30-45 minutes north (traffic can be tough),  $35usd one way cab ride, $8 entrance fee (national park)

All cab quotes are per car up to 4 people.
