The inviting stretch of sugar-soft sand along Rodney Bay is one of the largest and most popular beaches in St Lucia. Visitors looking for sunbathing, swimming and watersports can spend a day here and enjoy the convenience and amenities of the nearby town, including changing rooms and parking.
Reduit Beach’s golden shores offer commanding views across the bay to the verdant peaks of Pigeon Island National Park. Visit the watersports center at the Royal by Rex Resort to rent lounge chairs and snorkel equipment, or sign up for windsurfing and waterskiing lessons in the protected bay. The beachfront restaurant Spinnakers is the perfect spot to grab cocktails and a grilled fish lunch. And don’t think you have to go home when the sun goes down. Reduit Beach’s lively shore is equally popular at night. The west-facing beach boasts one of St. Lucia’s best sunset views, and the bars and nightclubs of Rodney Bay Village offer music and dancing until the early morning hours.
Reduit Beach sits near the north end of the island, along the waterfront of Rodney Bay Village, which has a selection of shopping, restaurants and hotels. The beach is 40 miles (65 km) from Hewanorra International Airport, and 6 miles (10 km) from the cruise terminal in the capital, Castries. Crowds are largest during the weekends, when locals and tourists alike frequent the beach.
