Holidays to Cap Estate are ideal for beach bums, with sweeps of sand in every direction and one of the island’s top sunbathing spots just down the road, at Rodney Bay.
Cap Estate is pretty much bang in the middle of St Lucia’s northern tip. The surroundings promise a generous dose of peace and quiet, with secluded sunbathing spots only 10 minutes’ drive away. You can catch a glimpse of authentic island life in the surrounding villages, and there’s an 18-hole golf course right on your doorstep.
The history books show Britain and France having a tug-of-war over St Lucia for nearly three centuries. Landmarks still exist from the 18th and 19th centuries, like the military fort on nearby Pigeon Island, and the buildings and gun emplacements half-an-hour away on Morne Fortune – the mountain overlooking the capital, Castries.
Close to the action
Rodney Bay’s award-winning marina is considered one of the best in the Caribbean, and it’s only 10 minutes’ drive away. The quayside is packed with super-sized, super-expensive yachts, and beyond the waterfront you’ll find one of St Lucia’s premier shopping centres – the Baywalk Mall. This mammoth complex is home to more than 80 stores and restaurants, plus the island’s first and only casino – Treasure Bay.
