Anse de sables
It is very easy to say that Anse de Sables is one of St. Lucia’s most beautiful beaches. It’s actually very surprising that there’s not a lot of developments here. Well, we loved it that way — miles and miles of white sand to ourselves. 🙂 The children loved all the digging and playing with the waves while I worked on my tan… (too much). Yes, I did get a little sunburn on my back on day 2. Who gets sunburned on the first day at the beach?!?! BOO! 😀
On to Latille Falls
After our morning in the sun, we decided to have a change of scenery and visit one of the many falls in the island. Latille Waterfalls (a Heritage Site) is situated just off the East coast of St. Lucia, right around the town of Micoud. There are easy signs to get there so getting lost is out of the question. 🙂 The adults paid $5 USD each but the children were free. The place is very lush and green and the hike to the falls was extremely short and easy. With the current drought St. Lucia is experiencing, the waterfall is a little dry but it was still very inviting. We didn’t bring swimsuits, though. 😀
After the short visit to the falls, we checked out the farm, fed the duck, met the man, Sly, who runs the place and bought a bottle of cashew syrup from ‘Good Vibes Cafe.’ 🙂 He showed us around and gave us some green mangoes, too. 🙂 Yum!
We had a fabulous time!
