    We had many RED FLAG days in our 7 days. Huge waves that will knock you down and spin you around if you are caught by one. Not very big, lmaybe half a mile. Water temp was perfect as was the weather.

    The Malabar Beach restaurant is part of the Rendezvous hotel.
    We had two meals here both of which were very good.

    We had a few hours to kill before flying back. Pretty beach though not great for swimming. A couple of restaurants serving Caribbean food. Just go and see Marcus (the sun lounger man) and he will look after you

    We didn't stay at Anse Chastanet, but we did come for a swim and some snorkelling on our boat tour. The volcanic beach is absolutely beautiful and the water is clear and calm. We saw a lot of fish and enjoyed our visit.

    This beach walk is lovely (and good to see some more of the island away from our resort), we actually walked to the Vigie Peninsular along the slip road between the beach and the little airport, and walked back along the beach itself. On the Peninsular we climbed to the lighthouse, sheltered inside during the flast late afternoon rain, climbed to the top (quite an adventure up the rusy steps!), enjoyed watching the mega cruise ships in the harbour below, then back along the beach where groups of people had started impromptu sports events, some exercise classes were happening, the bars were busy and everyone was enjoying their early evenings.

    This beach has a little of everything for everyone. Entrance is in the middle of the beach near "Spinnaker's" restaurant. Spinnaker's is a great beach restaurant/bar right on the beach serving local cuisine as well as a good burger and plenty of beer/drinks. For a quieter & more relaxing beach experience when entering the beach by Spinnakers take a left and head south. It's a very peaceful section of the beach with calm water. Walk to the White lifeguard stand and ask for Mervin, he can set you up with a beach chair and umbrella . He can get you buckets of local Piton beer as well. Very nice guy and the umbrella & chair combo are well worth it. There are several vendors at the main entrance by Spinnakers and several walk up/down the beach but a simple "No thank you" is all that's needed. I do recommend getting a coconut from "Bernard" he walks up & down the beach selling coconuts (he cuts them open with a machete and gives you a straw to drink with it. He also mixes an amazing rum drink with the coconut water which is delicious. Bernard may be one of the nicest people we've met on the island. Another recommendation is getting a roti from "Liz". She also walks up & down the beach and makes homemade roti's (chicken or fish) and they are fantastic. She also makes a homemade hot sauce that is out of this world. The last person I'd recommend is Jackie. She is hard to find, tucked back in the beach between Spinnakers and the life guard stand to the left. She braided my daughters hair and is a very sweet lady. Super kind and gentle. Most of the locals are very gentle people with kind dispositions. I agree with what others say in that you can expect to be encountered to buy something right when you enter and that can be annoying and isn't my cup of tea...however the 4 people I mentioned above are the cream of the crop and by planting yourself to the south part of the beach it's much calmer and peaceful.
    For activity our kids rented Jet-Ski's on the beach and also enjoyed the water park on the very north side of the beach. You really could spend an entire day on this beach and do water sports/activites, rest/relax, have food & drinks, etc. It's a pretty beach with views of Pigeon Island. The northern part is more crowded with activity and the Southern half is calmer/quieter and you can enjoy both.

    We did not stay at the Sugar Beach Resort, but wanted to snorkel here. The guard at the gate was very friendly & had us park at a visitor parking lot for free & we had to walk down hill to the beach. We arrived just before dusk & the snorkeling was great. You are snorkeling between the pitons along the base of the Petite Piton on the right side of the beach. We immediately saw an Octopus & 4 eels after getting in the water. There were also several orange corals & yellow barrel sponges. The hike back up to the car was very steep, but it was worth the snorkel!

    We pulled in and were met by Paul who gave us a very knowledgeable talk on the area. Fascinating Archaeology and wonderful Flora and Fauna. We walked down to bay and on way back saw a three metre Boa Constrictor. What a thrill!

    Excellent quiet beach. I stayed two days in Laborie, and visited the beach twice. There's a beach park at the far west end, and by a giant field is another good spot to enter the water. Farther east there are a few stormwater runoffs that I avoided swimming near. Plenty of places to access the beach. Residents' homes are the backdrop for much of the beach's length.

    In the water, the sand goes for about a couple of meters, and then it becomes full of seaweed. Towards the beach park, it's almost completely rocky, and hard to walk out into the water.

    My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful 10 day stay. I would absolutely recommend this resort to anyone looking for a good time and a comfortable stay. Not only are the staff friendly but helpful and polite. Joy's cruises is a must do, go see JJ on the beach by the almond tree.

    A great healthy reef for snorkelling and scuba diving. I did both during my trip and each provided me with a different experience. Lots of colourful fish, healthy coral and calm waters. If you go, take good care of it!

    Called in for a short visit when driving along the west coast. Nothing extra special apart perhaps the 'murals' along the wall near the church. Some street stalls offering the usual kind of items, but one lady did manage to find a couple of folding fans we had been looking for.

    took a circuit hike from one point of cas en base trail. calm seas to atlantic crashing waves along cliffs

    the path was well marked, and there were multiple stops to take photos. it was a sunny breezy day, the trail was dry.

    wild horses and domestic horses were a treat to see

    after the hike, we had a beach picnic, under the coconut trees. ample time to take a swim in warm waters.

    Lovely yellow sand. Calm tide. Lots of space for parking. Local bar for refreshments and restaurants close by. Coral reef for exploring.
