Fond Doux provides guests with the best of both worlds: the privacy and relaxation of the rainforest with access to the white sand beach. A St. Lucia vacation isn’t complete without a dip in the Caribbean Sea, which is why we have a free beach shuttle service available to all guests.
Our beach shuttle goes to Sugar Beach, a pristine white sand beach in Soufriere a short 15 minute drive away. Our private shuttle leaves daily at 10am with pickup at 2pm or 4pm, depending on your preference. Please be advised that guests are required to reserve a pickup time.
Free beach chairs are available at Sugar Beach, or upgraded beach cabanas can be rented for $50. A restaurant is nearby for lunch and refreshments while at the beach. Should you be interested in water sports, the following equipment can be rented: snorkeling equipment, kayaks, paddle boarding, hobie cats, wind surfing and schiller bikes. If you know you will be renting equipment, we invite you to book with us at reception for a discounted price.
Whether you’re looking for an action-packed day in the water or a peaceful day with your toes in the sand, our free beach shuttle to Sugar Beach makes your beach dreams a reality.
Should you choose to visit other local beaches at your own pace, popular beaches include:
• Anse-Chastanet – excellent snorkelling and a popular scuba dive site
• Anse des Pitons – a long stretch of untouched white sand popular for sunbathing and relaxing
• Malgretoute Beach – near Soufriere and coveted by the local community
Not all beaches on St. Lucia have white sand due to the island’s volcano. Rather, beach sands vary from light white to the darker, volcanic grains. The variety of beaches offer something for everyone!
