For any tropical vacation to go swimmingly, there have to be plenty of ways to get into the water. Whether you’re a fan of snorkeling or scuba diving or prefer to indulge in a relaxing afternoon by the pool, the best swim spots at Cap Maison in Saint Lucia offer plenty of ways to dip your toes in the water – or dive in head  first.

Here are some of our favorite ways to cool off, Caribbean-style. Share yours with us on Facebook or by using hashtag #CapMaison on Instagram.

Smuggler’s Cove

Nestled into the tree-lined coast, Cap Maison’s family-friendly beach is often referred to by locals as Smuggler’s Cove. With complimentary use of hobie cats, kayaks and snorkel equipment for resort guests, it’s the perfect spot to discover undersea wonders just steps off the sand. With The Naked Fisherman bar and grill nearby, enjoying a lunch time snack or relaxing beachside dinner is the perfect way to watch the waves roll in.

Main Pool

With stunning cliffside views, an outdoor shower and relaxing waterfall feature, the main pool is a sunbather’s dream with plenty of loungers and space to soak up the sun.  With the Cliff at Cap restaurant just a few steps away, a poolside cocktail is never too far from reach.


Courtyard Pool

This intimate pool offers a quiet escape to guests looking for a more solitary experience. Lush garden views beg visitors to sit back, relax and enjoy the sounds of nature.

Natural Hot Tub

Just below the Cliff at Cap restaurant, there’s a hidden spot perfect for honeymooners and the honeymooners at heart: a natural pool carved into the rock that is perfect for two people to enjoy a bottle of champagne. With no reservations required, you can walk down to enjoy a sunset view with full food and beverage service.


Private Villa Pools

Many of Cap Maison’s villas and suites offer rooftop or floor-level private pool options. There’s no better way to relax than in your own private pool.
