Fall for Saint Lucia and its picturesque palm-fringed beaches. We reckon these bronzed beauties are the best of the lot, but we'll let you be the judge.

1. Reduit

Reduit Beach, Saint Lucia

Say hello to ravishing Reduit. The most popular beach in Saint Lucia, Reduit is famed for its shimmering shores and calm waters. Plus, much of its powder-esque sands are shaded by lush island greenery, so you can shelter your little ones from the midday sun. Result!

2. Vigie Beach 

Vigie Beach, Saint Lucia

You'll never be palmed off where Vigie Beach is concerned. Instead, you'll be met with a jaw-dropping palm tree-lined beach - ideally placed for a quick afternoon dip from the island's capital Castries

3. Anse Chastanet 

Anse Chastanet, Saint Lucia

Take in the splendour of Anse Chastanet. Its naturally black sands are a subtle nod to the isle's volcanic origins. With smouldering beauty and tropical charm by the bucket load, you can expect a very warm welcome to this sabulous stretch. 

4. Pigeon Island 

Pigeon Island, Saint Lucia

Once an island in its own right, Pigeon Island was joined to Rodney Bay via a man-made sandy causeway. Now it is home to two small but utterly breathtaking beaches. Clear waters, wide sandy beaches and not a pigeon in sight...

5. Sugar Beach 

Sugar Beach, Saint Lucia

Let's go out on a (sugar) high! Eye-candy worthy Sugar Beach makes an utterly dreamy beach break. Sandwiched between the Piton Mountains, we think that the sweeping mountainous backdrop only better frames the truly tropical vista.
