Captain Lee Rosbach has sailed around many of the Caribbean islands while filming for Bravo’s hit yachting reality TV show Below Deck. However, Below Deck season 10‘s locations in Saint Lucia may have some the most challenging and choppy waters viewers have seen yet. Sailing on a bigger superyacht, St. David, Captain Lee (as well as his replacement Captain Sandy Yawn) and the rest of the Below Deck season 10 crew filmed in some stunning areas around the coast of Saint Lucia throughout early 2022. Here are all the Below Deck season 10 locations in Saint Lucia filmed on the show fans need to know.
Below Deck Season 10’s Rodney Bay Marina & Saint Lucia In The West Indies
Rodney Bay Marina is the homebase for the season 10 crew aboard superyacht St. David. The Rodney Bay Marina provides patrons with a highspeed fuel dock, laundry services, private showers, customs and immigration, WiFi connectivity, provisioning services, and much more according to the marina’s website. Rodney Bay Marina’s GM gave a tour of the Saint Lucia harbor where Below Deck season 10 is set.
The first group of charter guests on season 10 had to be dropped off to shore by a tender because of the extreme winds and waves. Captain Lee was concerned docking would be too dangerous.
“You’ve got the trade winds down here, and it’s gonna blow,” said Captain Lee early on in season 10. “The weather in the Caribbean is unpredictable. And Saint Lucia, it’s way down the chain in the Windward Islands. They call the the Windward Islands for a reason. Rolling around like a goddamn pinball in a slot machine.”
The island’s location near the equator means it’s affected by the natural phenomenon of strong northwesterly winds due the trade winds. These strong winds occur due to the earth’s rotation at the equator and the strong currents in the area, which early sailing ships harnessed to speed up their journeys across the globe. Trade ships today still use the trade winds and currents to help expedite trips around the world.
Below Deck Season 10 Locations: Vigie Beach, Saint Lucia
Primary Charter Guest Peng Lim and his friends had a beach picnic on Vigie Beach, Saint Lucia, on Below Deck season 10. Although footage was included on the show, Vigie Beach’s beauty wasn’t really displayed in the scenes included. The beach has white sand and turquoise blue waters.
Vigie Beach is also described as a great place to sunbathe on Trip Advisor, where it has an average review of “very good”. Tragically, Vigie Beach has had drownings there over the years, most recently in Nov. 2022.
Below Deck Season 10 Locations: La Mesa Restaurant, Bar & Grill In Saint Lucia
On the first night out between charters one and two, the crew ate at bar and restaurant La Mesa in Saint Lucia, located in Rodney Bay Marina. La Mesa offers patio eating with lots of delicious food on its menu, including octopus, bake scallops, gourmet burgers, grilled grouper and calamari, pork belly tacos and much more. The restaurant also serves delectable desserts such as its Dulce de leche Lava Cake.
La Mesa is where deckhand-stew Camille Lamb and deckhand Ben Willoughby first hit it off while filming Below Deck season 10. It’s also where the crew first started blowing some of their tip money on booze and food.
Trip Advisor reviewers give La Mesa four stars out of five.

Bois d’Orange, Saint Lucia Location From Below Deck Season 10
