Vigie Beach is probably the most convenient option to visit near the apartment building. Because this beach is a moderate distance off, you won't have to go far to find a place to sit by the water. The beach runs alongside the Vigie Airport runway, which seems like an immediate drawback; but the airport is relatively quiet, and its presence means a lack of hotels and resorts, keeping the beach clean and peaceful. Being close to Castries, it also puts you in a good location for shopping, dining, and other activities when you're day at the beach is finished.
If instead you're interested in a more secluded spot of sand, Choc Beach might be a good choice. Vacationers visiting Choc Beach can easily access nearby Castries, as well as its big resorts and shopping centers. Families with children seem to love Choc Beach because of its placid waters, which make a great swimming spot for the entire family.
