    If you are visiting Castries on a cruise ship and only have limited time for a beach visit then Vigie Beach could be a good choice.When you leave the ship follow the road that takes you pass Castries Airport.When you reach the large roundabout at the end of the runway take the track on the left hand side,this will take you onto Vigie Beach.Walking time is some 20-30 minutes.Taxi available at the cruise terminal if required.
    This is a totally unspoilt beach with plenty of shade,good for swimming with just one low rise hotel.

    Vigie Light built in 1914 by Chance Brothers. The station was established in1883. It is an active lighthouse; the light is 320 ft high and has two white flashes every 10 seconds. The tower is 36 feet tall - a cylindrical tower with lantern and gallery, painted white with red trim; lantern painted red. In October, the lighthouse was in poor condition, with no glass in the lantern but by February the tower had been repainted. The adjoining keeper's house was in use as office space for the Air and Sea Ports Authority. The lighthouse is located on the Vigie peninsula, the north side of the harbor of Castries, near the airport. The site and tower are open daily.
