Dominica, St Lucia

Recommended Posts

Debating on doing arial tram on one of these two islands. Anyone have any advice on which one is nicer. Also looking for a beach on both of these islands to go to. Would like beach chairs,restrooms,bar, food etc.. any recomondations? I was looking at reduit beach in St Lucia. It seems that you have to pay $15.00 pp to get in which includes your chairs and one drink. Is there another part of that beach that you get onto for cheaper?

If I were you, I would go to the port of call boards to get answers to this.

Dominica does not have much in the way of beaches but the interior of the island more than makes up for it.

 

Saint Lucia has some nice beaches. Many to choose from.

 

The roads on both islands are narrow, winding mountain roads. If you are prone to being carsick it would be good to take something.

 

We had a great time on both islands.

I heard the aerial tram in St Lucia is a great trip. Was on a cruise in Jan and people went on the ship tour to the tram.

Reduit beach is a free beach north of the city, the prettiest one,powdery sand. All beaches are public in St Lucia. But it is not known for its beaches. Lot of black sand beaches in the south. The charge you mention is some kind of a deal to use sunbeds and get drink. A taxi can take you there. If you knew how to take the local bus it is only 2EC, like a dollar or 2 on the bus. The driver would take US maybe $2 each. Depends where the boat ports, if at Point Seraphine, you walk out of the port to the main road and stand at a bus stop or ask somebody where to stand. It is not well marked and very informal. A bus, really a van with the sign 1A in the front window will take you north. Ask the driver where to let you off near where to walk toward Reduit beach. I go to St Lucia a lot, the people are friendly, just pile in the van and climb over everybody and sit down. Feels wierd but fun. The main thing is ask anybody to direct you to where you want to go. They are nice people.

 

There is also a public big beach at Choc Bay where you can rent beach chairs and buy a drink but you don't have to. There is a bar there. It is on the way north, but a lot closer to town. Left side. Oh yes, they drive on the left like Britain so to go north you stay on the side by the port.

 

In Dominica I went on a snorkel beach trip called Champagne Snorkel to a place (no champagne to drink) the water bubbles up from the sea bed. neat place. Good trip. Lots of fish, corals, bar.
