Bury your head in Sandy Beach

According to legend, the nearby Black Bay was where the notorious pirate Blackbeard stashed his loot in the 18th century _ but you won't need a map to discover the real treasure of Sandy Beach. At the southern tip of St. Lucia, Sandy Beach is a broad stretch of white sand that's a popular swimming destination, and the constant breeze means that conditions are almost always ideal for kitesurfing and parasailing. Near the laid-back restaurants, cafes, and historical sites in Vieux Fort, a Sandy Beach vacation rental will take island living to the next level.

Sandy Beach _ join the wet set

Kitesurfing is the name of the game at Sandy Beach. Thanks to its position on St. Lucia's southern tip, strong breezes from the Atlantic make for great kitesurfing all year round. And after conquering the waves on your board, a leisurely afternoon of fishing and sightseeing is just the ticket _ you'll find plenty of boat rentals, offering everything from kayaks to speedboats. If you think everything's better down where it's wetter, the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea are popular for snorkeling and scuba diving, and chances are good you'll spot many of the region's diverse underwater species.

There's plenty to sea around Sandy Beach

Once you've gotten your fill of lounging by the seashore _ say, after a week or 2 _ it's time for a visit to Moule a Chique Lighthouse. Built in 1901, the storied lighthouse was a strategic outpost in both World War I and the Grenada Revolution. Sure, it provides much-needed navigational assistance to ships in the area, but it also offers spectacular views of the island and the surrounding ocean. On a clear day you can see the Pitons _ a pair of volcanic mountains _ from here, but with a short drive, you can also hike the peaks yourself.

Tropic thunder in Sandy Beach

St. Lucia has a humid tropical climate _ that means plenty of warm, muggy days all year. Since it's near the equator, the temperature doesn't change much from one season to the next, with average highs in the low 80s most of the year. The dry season _ December through June _ is your best bet for avoiding the frequent summer storms (the rainy season is June through November), but you may find that vacation rentals near Sandy Beach, Vieux Fort are a little pricier this time of year _ especially as visitors from colder, wetter regions flock to the island during the winter.

Fall in lav-a with nature in Sandy Beach

St. Lucia is a volcanic island, and much of the interior is filled with mountains, valleys, and tropical rainforest. But the exterior of the island is ringed with broad, sandy beaches and rocky jetties, and you'll find plenty of coastal bluffs offering unmatched ocean views. The western side of the island offers coral reefs and man-made diving areas _ purpose-sunk ships that have become habitats for local marine life, like dolphins, fish, and even sea turtles. With a Sandy Beach vacation rental, you'll never be far from true island paradise.
