Another alternative worth considering is Anse Chastanet. Anse Chastanet Beach is a lovely spot. It's in possession of that smooth, soft sand that begs to be squished between your toes.

Jalouise: The beach is a few miles south of Soufriere on the southwestern coast. From Soufriere, take Baron Dr south until you reach the end. Take a right and you'll be led to the Jalousie Hilton on the beach.
