THE REEF
VIEUX FORT, ST LUCIA

THE LOW DOWN: 

St Lucia is a lush volcanic island, aptly called – ‘Simply Beautiful’ with a UNESCO World Heritage site, rainforests and beaches. Fly direct from the UK or North America to Sandy Beach in Vieux Fort. Away from the tourist resorts, enjoy the ‘Original Caribbean!’ Windsurfing and kitesurfing, horseback riding, jungle biking, kayaking, scuba, snorkelling and rainforest hikes are all on the menu! Local barbecue, fresh fruits, seafood, locally brewed Piton beers, reggae music, banana milkshakes and home-made fish fingers: it’s all irie!

LOCAL SPOT: 

A reef-enclosed bay with two nature islands, one mile away. The beach curves into the wind on the downwind end so very safe. Sandy-bottomed bay, no reefs or rocks and always warm water (27°C).

ABOUT THE CENTRE: 

Locally owned and managed since 1994, The Reef is a small but dedicated windsurfing and kitesurfing centre, open from December till April/May with certified instructors and located on the Atlantic coast at the island’s southern end, facing the full force of the trade winds. We offer rentals, lessons and storage. Wide range of Tabou and Starboard boards and Gaastra sails, all in good or great condition.
