This black sand of Saint Lucia, a gift of giants, is of volcanic origin . But hotels and tourist complexes of Saint Lucia, as a rule, have their own coastal zone of white sand. Apart from just relaxing on the beach, Saint Lucia offers opportunities of observing the underwater world. The diving infrastructure on the island is developed well enough.
The entire coastline of Saint Lucia is one continuous strip of beaches, stretching for over 1100 km. On the east coast there is a number of small hotels, located between Micoud and Anse Noire.
 
The beaches are mainly sandy and fairly secluded. Along the western, Caribbean coast, between Vieux Fort and Gros Ile, extends a succession of resorts that remind the Mediterranean Riviera, with lots of  restaurants and nice beaches surrounded by tropical vegetation.
 
The northern coastline of St. Lucia features some spectacular beaches, and nowhere is that truer than on Pigeon Island, 40 acres of national park joined to the mainland by a scenic man-made causeway. Higher ground on the island affords terrific views over aquamarine waters, volcanic cliffs and Martinique out on the horizon.
 
Pigeon Island was once home to indigenous Amerindians, but went on to become a pirate hideaway and then a British military base. With volcanic rocks, secluded coves for picnics and some of the prettiest stretches of sand imaginable, it’s not hard to feel at ease in the surroundings. These days it’s a recreational area where visitors are free to enjoy the scenery, spend time on perfect beaches and enjoy the rest of what the islet has to offer.
Jalousie Beach
The beach located south of Soufrière, between Petit Piton and Gros - two volcanic twin peaks is a white sand paradise ready to impress you. The striking volcanic hills that veer steeply into the sky at either side of Jalousie Beach are called the Pitons, and they’re a very famous feature of St. Lucia’s landscape. The local brand of beer is named after these geographical features, and they’re so distinctive that as a backdrop they couldn’t be more spectacular. The Pitons, now a world heritage site, are in fact two giant volcanic plugs. The larger, or Gros Piton, is 771m high and the Petit Piton is almost as tall at 743m. A ridge called the Piton Mitan links the two.
 
Grande Anse is one of St. Lucia’s nature reserves, and as such is protected from development. Though the terrain around the beach is arid, it is home to a vast selection of some of the island’s most fascinating wildlife. St. Lucia’s only venomous snake can be found in this nature reserve, but visitors rarely report having seen one. There are rare birds to be sighted, and the beach is a nesting ground for several species of endangered turtle.
 
With huge palm trees and a view of St. Lucia’s dramatic volcanic Pitons, Anse Chastanet is a popular beach with an enormous amount to offer discerning visitors. There are rolling green hills in the background, palm trees, pearly white sands and the soft, inviting waters of the Caribbean to savor. Visitors to St. Lucia will find a welcome balance at Anse Chastanet beach. There’s just the right amount of seclusion on offer to really feel like you’ve gone off the beaten track, without actually finding yourself far from modern conveniences, atmospheric bars and romantic restaurants. Villages, towns are cities are close enough to be accessible without impeding the naturally beautiful scenery.
