Excellent food from dedicated local chef Lammie who welcomes you personally. Dishes include grilled fish, local chicken,pork bouillon and side dishes of plantain, potatoes,ground provisions and salads. Prices EC$ 15 to 25. With a rum punch and a view of the turquoise sea what more could you want?

The wind blowing from the Atlantic ocean was gusty during my stay. Nevertheless for surfers this is a paradise. I did a bit of kite surfing which is not hard to get a hang of it.

Its a very peaceful, clean and beautiful beach. If you are looking for a chilled back relaxing vacation then Vieux fort is great but if you like adventure then i would recommend Castries, Rodney Bay, etc.

We walked along this sandy beach on our 1st morning in St Lucia, its on the Atlantic side so there were Wind and Kite surfers out on the sea. White sands, warm waters, peace and tranquility. Several young men were clearing the beach of litter as we walked and swam off this beach.

Best beach on the island. Several small places to eat, good food. Kite surfing and wind surfing rentals Great swimming / medium sized waves. Sand as far as you can see in every direction The best part of this beach, no one hassling you ever. You park under the trees, walk to the beach, and enjoy. I would recommend staying... More

That's all that needs to be said about this gorgeous beach. The water is warm and it is patrolled by the local policia.

I wish the ramp was still as gorgeous as Sandy Beach unfortunately it's been ruined and pimped out all in the glorious name of tourism... Sigh. Come to Sandy Beach for a taste of Saint Lucia's past. I don't recommend swimming here on a rough day but it's absolutely gorgeous. Experience the beach it was meant to be experienced... Locals... More

Rarely do I get a chance to go to the beach while I travel. However, I had the opportunity to pull up and have a relaxing lunch at the beach. The highlight was watching a young boy and his horse playing in the ocean. Classic.

Sandy beach is a great place to stop and take pictures of the Atlantic and up to the lighthouse. Unfortunately the beach it self is very full if weeds and the Atlantic water is very turbulent. It didn't seem safe to swim at all. It would be a great spot to kite board.
