Water sports:

Sailing

Water-ski, jet-ski, banana-boat, mini-sailing, pedalo can be practised in the surroundings of the large hotels located in the various tourist centres such as Rodney Bay, Choc Bay and Marigot Bay. For further information refer to your hotel reception or the Tourist Board.

Sailing: At the Marinas a yacht, with or without captain and crew, can be hired for one or more days.

- Marigot Bay : a picturesque natural marina, home to the international sailing organisation The Moorings.
- Rodney Bay : a marina where a maximum of 1000 yachts can anchor or moor.

It is certainly worthwhile to make a sailing trip from the North along the West coast as far as Soufrière (refer to the local advertisements).

Wind surfing: St. Lucia has splendid wind surfing possibilities thanks to the never ending trade-winds. This guarantees a continuous on shore breeze along the East coast. The most suitable locations are in the South-East close to Vieux Fort at the Anse de Sables Beach and in the North-East at Cas en Bas.

Scuba-diving: The most suitable diving locations are situated along the West coast in the Caribbean Sea and especially at the protected Marine Reserve of Soufrière. The water is crystal clear. It is strictly forbidden to take away corals and young shell-fish. The scuba-diving centres are located at Anse Chastanet, Marigot Bay, Castries and Rodney Bay.

Scuba diving along the East coast is almost non existant because of the currents in the Atlantic Ocean.

Diving

Golf:

The Cap Estate Golf Club, situated in the North of the island, has a 12 hole course with beautiful panoramic views. This golf course is being upgraded to 18 holes. There is also a private golf course for the Guests of Sandals La Toc near Castries.

Horseback riding

Horseback riding:

Horseback riding in this tropical paradise has unlimited possibilities for beginners as well as for experienced riders.

From the North to South, there are riding stables, a few hotels and even some plantations offering horseback riding.
One can make a short or longer ride or even a trip of a couple of days. Dirt roads and foot-paths lead you through the tropical greenery and onto the white sandy beaches next to the waves.

Hiking:

You can discover the beauty of the tropical rain forest in several places. Mostly a guide is mandatory.
