It is on the Lagoon, yes.

Thank you for the suggestion to post the place we will be staying. Here's the condo listing. www.vrbo.com/658170 and it's called Carisma on the beach. Looks like a nice place and the reviews are good.

I'm not certain, but I think it's pretty close to LaVista Beach. Hopefully someone else can confirm for sure. Looks nice!

As far as other things to take in:

Parotte Ville - a parrot sanctuary where the birds will eat out of a cup given to you and will light on your head, shoulders, etc. A simply wonderful experience!

The Zoo - so much fun feeding the goats out of your hand!

Tijon - also lots of fun making your own perfume/scent (not just for ladies!)

Loterie Farm - zip lining, cabanas around a beautiful pool, restaurant/bar "in the trees"

Passaat - do not miss a sail on the Passaat; they offer half-day sails, sunset sails, and dinner sails. Others will recommend other sailing experiences, but this is my favorite.

While the island has 37 beaches, I am partial to a few on the French side:

Anse Marcel - a beautiful beach with gentle water and a beach bar with wonderful food

Friar's Bay Beach / Friar's Bay Beach Club

Petite Plage - beach associated with Grand Case Beach Club

La Playa - restaurant and bar on Orient Beach run by Bruno Lemoine

Dreams - great beach bar on Nettle Bay. The beach isn't that great, but this is another wonderful food establishment run by Bruno Lemoine

This should give you a start! Have a great trip!

I though I read here that Tijon was closed.

If you love Italian, you might want to try Sale y Pepe. It's very near you at the bottom of Billy Folly Road.

I don't think so. They are selling the business, but I don't think that has yet happened, and even if it does, I doubt that the business will close; it's much too successful.

Again, thanks for all the information. I have read quite a few posts about Cupecoy beach being nice. I see it is "secluded" so does that mean we would need to bring chairs and shade or is there somewhere there to rent them?

Dany rents chairs and umbrellas at Cupecoy, and also sells lunch and drinks there. His rum punch is excellent.

If you want lunch, you need to:

1) arrive before lunch
2) tell him that you would like lunch when you arrive

He cooks to order.
