It is 20 miles. My suggestion is to do an island tour to see more than just one beach - Cosol tours are the most recommended for St. Lucia. The tour fee is $55 per person. Its 5 to 6 hours. You get to visit the waterfall, volcano, botanical garden, Marigot bay, fishing villages, banana plantation, shopping, beach and snorkling at the Hillton Jalousie hotel which is between the Pitons and many more things on the way. They pay all the entrance fees. Lots to sample of their local taste on the way, and they have a cooler with drinks like water, rum punch, local beers and soda. They leave around 8:30am http://www.cosol-tours.com/tours.html .

My New Working Hours

The season of the mini cruise.

By Warwick Van Reenen

Warwick Van Reenen's blog

My first cruise was a mini cruise on the new Independence of the Seas in 2009. Well, she was new then! It was during a May bank holiday weekend and a 4 night to Cork and back.It was bank holiday weekend and the ship was filled to capacity. The volume of luggage being manhandled on board the vast family-friendly superliner at Southampton might have suggested we were all embarking on a world circumnavigation rather than a short sailing and this is another bonus of a cruise out of Southampton is...
