The beach life
Holidays in Labrelotte Bay provide everything you need for the perfect Caribbean getaway: swaying palm trees, golden sand and a brilliantly blue ocean, all basked in gorgeous weather. Situated on St Lucia’s North East coast, this magnificent bay is an ideal location for couples and families looking to enjoy a sun soaked holiday.
The crescent shaped beach of Labrelotte Bay is the perfect destination for sun worshippers, with loungers and umbrellas available along the beach. There’s a roped off section for swimming, so families can enjoy the ocean safely, and those who love to snorkel will be pleased to know the underwater sealife here is fantastic, too.
Head into Rodney Bay, a nearby town known as the entertainment capital of the island, where you’ll find bars, shopping malls and St Lucia’s only casino. The best of St Lucia’s dining experiences can also be found here, featuring Caribbean fusion and international dishes in a range of delicious restaurants.
Labrelotte Bay promises to provide the ultimate setting for a relaxing Caribbean escape. Spend your days soaking up the sun with a rum cocktail in hand, or rent a snorkel mask and explore the colourful coral reefs. Labrelotte Bay is home to a range of luxury hotels, most of which come complete with spas, fine dining and easy access to the beach – perfect for an indulgent, relaxing holiday.
Sovereign recommends a stay at Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort, a beautiful, Caribbean style hotel overlooking the bay. Guests are treated to six swimming pools, a huge deluxe spa, tennis courts and a fitness centre for the ultimate luxury break in St Lucia. Alternatively, opt to stay at East Winds, a luxury boutique hotel located right by the ocean. Suites are intimate and elegant, with views of the surrounding tropical gardens or the azure waters of the sea. Choose an all inclusive stay, where you’ll be treated to a four course meal every evening, featuring fresh seafood straight from the barbecue.
