    Chilled is all you need
    We used the beach as our hotel (bel jou hotel)provides a shuttle bus to the beach . On arrival you are met by a local who provides you with a sun bed and takes your name an room number. There is a rest station near to where we get dropped of provides food an drinks at reasonable cost. The beach slopes into the sea so watch your footing but it's beautiful to be in . If you want to walk the beach you can as your gear will be looked after safety all in all great beach to chill and swim

    Nice beach close to cruise pier
    I went to this beach today. Lots of clouds mixed with sun which I think is pretty normal for St. Lucia. The cab is now $15 one way for two people. They want you to pay ahead of time for pick up but we just took the guys phone number and had the beach people call him when we were ready to return to the ship. Where they drop you off at chairs by restaurant, they are on a steep incline and under trees and $10 per piece. We walked down the beach to the sunny flat part and got chairs for $5 each. The waves were big and I didn’t get in, but it was really pretty and relaxing! $1 to have them unlock the bathroom by the restaurant. They are clean. In my opinion, it is too far to walk from port because you have to walk around the gated area of the runway at the airport.

    Walking distance from Castries - pretty beach
    We are staying at Bel Jou Hotel, Castries and found ourselves at Vigie beach having gone for a wonder. It's not that far to walk from the hotel, though very hilly in parts. We walked around the airport and through the cemetery, straight onto a secluded part of the beach. The only person we saw was a friendly chap with coconuts. Lots of shade to get comfy in as well. As we were in a non touristy part there were no sun loungers or food places, walk down the beach for those.

    Accessible clean, soft white sand beach within walking distance from Point Seraphine harbor.
    Vigie Beach surprised me. It was a very nice, quiet beach, at noon mid-week, with a very long stretch of lovely soft white sand. The water gently drifted to the shoreline and the drop off was further out. Although visitors can spread a towel around the shady trees anywhere, there are loungers available at the far left of the beach where there is a cafe, WC. Blue mesh loungers weren't the cleanest looking, probably $2 for $25, but I didn't inquire. Cruisers could walk 30 mnutes to the beach from the Pointe Seraphine harbor, but start in the morning for this walk as the streets are unshaded, particularly hot in the port area to the road parallel to the airport runway. Of course, taxis are available at the dock. I could spend a good part of the day at this beach on my next visit to Castries and not spend much money doing so.

    An Amazing Day at Vigie Beach 🥰👌
    On our Caribbean cruise we docked in Castries, St Lucia, and decided not to take an organised tour, but took a taxi with Abbot’s Taxi Service in the port, to Vigie Beach and had the most wonderful day. On arrival at the beach, we were met by a friendly young man, whose mother owned the Beach Bar I think and he immediately organised our beds and umbrella and said that he would organise our taxi back to port when we wanted to go. He recommended his mother’s rum punches, which was a great recommendation as they were the best rum punches of the trip!, The beach was beautiful and Daggery was giving horse rides with his lovely horse, Star. My girlfriend was interested in a ride and Daggery took her out to sea a little where she swam holding onto Star’s mane and as she she came into shore, she mounted Star, with Daggery’s help, and rode onto the beach. She said it was one of the best experiences of her life for a very nominal price. A day to certainly to be remembered and probably at half of the price of an excursion. Big thanks to Daggery, Star and the wonderful staff at Vigie Beach!! Also to Abbott’s Taxi Services.

    Nice local authentic beach, lovely view
    We had 2 visits to Vigie beach on our recent 2week holiday. Our hotel bel jou had a shuttle bus running here 5 days a week and we had our own section of beach. Loungers were tired but there were plenty of them. No parasols which does need addressing as the sun is so hot however many took shade under the large tree if it got too hot. Lovely sand, clear sea, local food and drinks on offer both on the beach and close by with toilet facilities as well.

This is seriously a great beach, might be our favorite on the island. There was hardly anyone there so it was like we had it to ourselves, highly recommend.

The beach is beautiful but covered with beach chairs to accommodate cruiseship passengers on cruise ship days.

30 minute walk from cruise port in pretty much a straight line around the airport or $5 each taxi. Couple of bars. Only thing I didn't like was a guy walking up and down the beach with a horse riding it hitting it with a stick trying to get tourists to come take a picture.

Small but charming Caribbean beach. Not a lot to see really. Called off at the beach as part of a larger island tour and enjoyed the chance to chill.
