A visit to Saint Lucia is incomplete without spending some time in its capital, Castries.

Built on reclaimed land, the city serves as a sheltered harbor, provides duty-free shopping, and there are plenty of beautiful beaches to enjoy.

Founded in 1650 when a group of Frenchmen founded a fort in the location, Castries has been rebuilt several times since the 17th century. It is a major area of tourism, serving as a common stop for cruise ships. There are some fantastic opportunities outside of the common routes of traffic, however, if you know where to look.

Try getting to the market on Jeremie Street early, right as vendors are beginning to accept sales. You’ll beat the crush of people coming from a docked cruise ship and get to explore what is available before anyone else. This is a great way to find deals outside of the often-busy duty-free areas.

Go out to Morne Fortune as well. You’ll find it just below the government house. This designated viewing point is the perfect place to take a few photographs on a beautiful day. You can also relax in Derek Walcott Square, bake in the sun at Vigie Beach, or find something good to eat at a local café along the square.

Snorkeling, diving, and other water sports make it possible to choose your own adventure as well. You’ll find Castries, along with all of Saint Lucia, to be a place of intriguing possibilities. Plan ahead today to see what you might be able to discover.
