Holidays to Castries put you in a prime spot for exploring all of St Lucia’s attractions.
A culture-packed old town
This charming old-Caribbean town is overflowing with laid-back vibes. There’s colourful colonial architecture, a pretty palm-lined square and 17th-century buildings to explore. You’ll also find plenty of restaurants and street vendors dotted around where you can sample traditional Caribbean food.
Shop till you drop
Castries’ huge, vibrant market is the town’s main event, and it attracts locals and tourists from all corners of the island. You’ll find hand-made souvenirs, colourful crafts, fresh spices and Creole treats to sample. Duty-free bargains can be found at Point Seraphine and La Place Carenage shopping centres, which offer discounted jewellery, silks and fine leather goods.
Best seat on the coast
Located right in the middle of the west coast, Castries gives you easy access to St Lucia’s best attractions. Head south to see the Piton Mountains, Diamond Falls and plenty of colourful Caribbean villages. North is where you’ll find Rodney Bay Marina, sweeping white-sand beaches and Pigeon Island National Park.
