Castries

Bodies of Water · Fishing Charters & Tours · Scuba & Snorkeling
The capital and largest city in Saint Lucia, Castries has a number of cultural sites to explore, and recreational areas to enjoy. Although much of its historic architecture was destroyed by fires in 1785 and 1948, the city has been rebuilt with a charm and attention to detail that make it a major stop off for Caribbean cruises. The hill that serves as the city's backdrop has been topped by elegant architectural highlights and offers extensive views of the city and bay. Few vacations to Castries go by without a visit to a beach or two, with many well-kept sandy beaches located either in town or just outside. With our custom trip planner, St. Lucia vacations can be built around trips to Castries and other destinations in St. Lucia.

Where to stay in Castries

With an abundance of shops, restaurants, and the famous harbor, there's certainly plenty to see in town, but most tourists choose to stay near the island's beaches, like Vigie, Malabar, Choc, and La Toc. All are very easy to reach by taxi or bus. In the capital itself, you'll find a handful of guesthouses and hotels, many with their own pools, and all within walking distance of the main stores and the ferry terminal.
