Getting to St Lucia

Whether you fly direct, stop off on a cruise, island hop or simply drive around the island, The Reef is easy to find.

By Road

The Reef is conveniently located along the main road about half-way between Hewanorra international airport and the town of  Vieux Fort at the south of St Lucia. Keep an eye out for the two offshore Maria Islands and you will find The Reef on the beach directly facing the islands.


There are two airports in St Lucia: one in the north and one in the south.

George F.L. Charles Airport (airport code: SLU) is located just outside the capital city of Castries in the north of the island.

Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) in Vieux Fort is located 40 miles south of Castries, just a stone’s throw from all of the action at The Reef.
