Along this natural, undisturbed coastline, sunny beaches stretch for miles as you walk along the sand and catch glimpses of whales, dolphins, and large sea turtles to your right and St. Lucia's highly vegetated sand dunes to your left. Further inland, there are walking trails through sub-tropical forests,grasslands, and lily-covered pans alive with wildlife and the largest population of rhinos in the world.

The area is home to five different ecosystems with very unique biodiversity. You can experience the wonders of the wetlands through guided tours from knowledgeable, local experts.  There are also self-guided safari and walking tours.  Boat safaris will bring you up close and personal with crocs laying in the sun and pelicans soaring through the air.
