Spacious Suites on Celebrated Caribbean Shore

Near St. Lucia’s northern tip, a scenic coastline known as Rodney Bay was once a favorite haunt of 16th- and 17th-century French pirates and British admirals, thanks to its proximity to the neighboring island of Martinique. Nowadays, it’s famous for Reduit Beach, a golden stretch of sand that Fodor’s calls one of the “island’s finest beaches.” Royal by Rex Resorts nestles along a 1-mile stretch of this shoreline, commanding views of palms, sailboats, and the Caribbean waves.

The resort’s layout makes it easy to wander between the beach and the pool, which meanders past footbridges and waterfalls. Enjoy a tropical cocktail at the pool’s swim-up bar, which is designed like an island and surrounded by submerged barstools. Alternatively, the onsite L’Epicure restaurant serves creole dishes on an open-air terrace, and the elegant Chic specializes in fine French fare.

In addition to a private patio, Royal’s suites often include fresh flowers and colonial-style shutters. Deluxe suites overlook gardens, and visitors can gaze into the ocean beyond from the sea-view suites. In the morning, L’Epicure’s hot buffet of eggs, sausages, and pancakes prepare you for sailing and scuba-diving adventures (extra fees apply).

Saint Lucia: French-Inspired Cuisine and Spectacular Volcanoes

Located in between Martinique and Saint Vincent in the eastern Caribbean, Saint Lucia was coveted by the British and French, who quarreled over the island for more than a century. Although English is now Saint Lucia’s official language, the French seem to have left a more noticeable influence on its arts and cuisine. Along the coast, a string of marinas exhibits a cultural blend through restaurants ranging from fried-fish shacks to upscale French eateries. Grab a table to sample meaty pepperpot stew, spinach-like callaloo soup, or the country’s national dish of green fig—a Caribbean term for small, unripe bananas—and salt fish.

With several beaches, Saint Lucia attracts those looking for snorkeling excursions, dolphin-watching tours, or deep-sea fishing trips in search of blue marlin, barracuda, and mako shark. Crowds descend on the popular Reduit Beach at Rodney Bay, not too far from the 18th-century British forts at Pigeon Island National Park. For a less hectic scene, head south down the coast to Anse Chastanet, a more secluded beach with giant palm trees and undulating green hills.

A vacation in Saint Lucia is not complete without a visit to one of its volcanoes. Considered the country’s unofficial symbol, the Pitons are two vegetation-covered volcanic plugs rising more than 2,000 feet above the western coast. Nearby Saint Lucia Volcano is considered “the world’s only drive-in volcano,” as you can drive your car close to the volcanic crater to see its steaming sulfur springs.
