Things to do

Castries Central Market

Castries Central Market

Castries Central Market is the largest open-air market in St. Lucia's capital. Immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of the Castries Central Market and take the opportunity to pick up everything from spices to fresh fruit and vegetables, handmade crafts and souvenirs.

Saturday morning is a good time to go trawling the colourful stalls, taking in all the sights and sounds. Just look for the bright orange pitched roof in downtown Castries.

 

 
Hike Gros Piton

Hike Gros Piton

The Pitons are a Unesco World Heritage Site and perhaps the single most iconic landmarks and symbols of St. Lucia. Whilst the view is incredible from afar, it's definitely worth getting up close and scaling one of these mountains. The ocean-spanning panoramas from the top of Gros Piton (2,619 feet) are staggering and well worth the hike to the summit.

As a protected landmark, you'll need permission from the Forestry Department before you get going. A guide can also surpervise your journey along the trail, whilst keeping you informed on nature, history, and perhaps some local recommendations.

Pigeon Island

Pigeon Island

Pigeon Island has come to be known as one of the most beautiful and historically significant landmarks in Saint Lucia. A highly contested landscape with a checkered past, Pigeon Island includes a number of heritage sites, including military ruins and a foretress lookout as well as two stunning beaches and some awesome eateries.

Also incredible for active pursuits such as hiking and sailing, Pigeon Island is ideal for picking up the adrenaline in gorgeous Caribbean surroundings. This 44-acre islet is easily accessible just north of Castries and only a short drive away from Gros Islet.
