Castries, St. Lucia-port

Castries is the capital, commercial center and main cruise port of St Lucia. Founded by the French in about 1768, it changed hands in the earlier 1800’s, when the British made the town a major naval port and built fortifications on Morne Fortune, overlooking the harbor. Today, the port offers something for everyone. Bargain hunters can head over to the duty-free shops at Pointe Seraphine; Castries Waterworks Forest Reserve allows visitors a rare glimpse of rain forest flora and fauna; and, for those looking for a fun day trip, a visit to the Grand Pitons or a hike up to Fort Charlotte on Morne Fortune offer beautiful vistas and historical perspective.

4x4 Beach Safari

Duration: 4 hours

Tour Code: STL-003

Enjoy the beauty of St. Lucia by going off the beaten path. Set off from the pier in a 4-wheel drive vehicle to explore the island's rugged landscape.

Your journey will take you through the capital city of Castries and up Morne Fortune. Your guide will entertain you along the way with ongoing commentary about the island's rich heritage and attractions. On your way to the beach, drive through the small quaint villages of Ti-Rocher, Balata and Destrameaux. From the rolling hills, your driver will take you along a rugged trail to one of the east coast's most spectacular beaches, where you will have the opportunity to swim and sunbathe.

After spending some time at the beach, re-board your 4 x 4 for the scenic ride back to the ship.

Please Note: This is not a self-driving tour and that a driver is provided. Beach chairs are not included in this tour, but are available for rental at the beach.
