Reduit Beach

St. Lucia




People’s Choice

Hugely popular, very beautiful, tons of fun. That’s what online reviewers have said over and over again about Reduit Beach, the most well-known stretch of sand on the island of St. Lucia.

Located on the north coast near Rodney Bay Village, Reduit Beach attracts people from all over the world who love having nature’s majestic masterpieces set the stage for a beachfront party. The gorgeous coastline boasts golden sands, a lush mountainous backdrop, and gentle waters that make swimming easy and enjoyable.


A fun day at the beach is a sure thing here. Rent some water sports equipment and spend the daylight hours windsurfing or waterskiing, or opt to snorkel or scuba dive. If you can spare a little time away from the shore, book an excursion to nearby Pigeon Island National Park, which offers tours of area landmarks, reserves and protected areas.

After an afternoon basking in the sun, head over to the snack bar for an icy refreshment, or sample some of the casual fare offered by vendors.

A few beachfront restaurants might also lure you in with their irresistible aromas. But keep in mind you have even more dining options in town.

Keep in Mind

While it’s a favorite spot for families or for groups who love to party and dance to the rhythms floating over the beach, Reduit is not exactly the secluded, romantic ideal. Look elsewhere if you crave a little privacy.
