While some beaches on Saint Lucia are made of sugar-soft white sand, others have exotic black sand, showing their volcanic origin. The beach at Calabash Cove is one of the most beautiful on the island, with soft white sand lapped by the azure water of the calm Caribbean Sea. It’s perfect for a barefoot wedding, for romantic walks along the waves and for some great beach sports.
