- Being in nearby Rodney Bay we felt we had to go and see what the street party was about.
To be honest I felt a little apprehensive about the area and the fact that we were going somewhere with so many people about, however I need not worry. We went fairly early around 7.30 and asked our taxi to come back for us at 10 as we are not late birds.
The party was only just getting started when we arrived and only seemed to start get going around 8.30ish. This gave us a perfect opportunity to get our food ahead of the crowds. My husband couldn’t resist the half lobster at EC100 seemed very reasonable. I being the fussy eater opted for chicken and noodles. Whilst my husband was in heaven with his lobster I not being a lover of garlic didn’t really enjoy mine as everything was laced heavily with garlic.
There are loads of people selling drinks from little stalls however we opted to go into a bar to get ours which were really reasonable EC20 for a local rum and coke and JD and coke.
Music I was expecting to hear lots of Reggae music however it was more UK dance music which really got the crowd going.
Tips wear cool clothes, don’t overdress and flat shoes as the streets are very uneven.Written 6 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Nice local community church with beautiful fresh flowers and some colorful windows in the middle of Gros Islet.Written 8 February 2020
- We choose this little gem twice over Anse Chastanet. Was worth the extra trek. Beach is beautiful and the snorkeling was great. We ate lunch there and the food was ok. People raved about the burger, but there was nothing special about it. Drink and food prices were high, but in sync with all the resorts. Price to rent (2) beach loungers and shade was $66US. Overall, a wonderful experience.Written 21 October 2022
- We were here for the third Windies v England test match as part of our usual three weeks in St Lucia. At least England won that one.
Stadium is basic compared to those in the UK and care is needed in choosing your seat to avoid being in direct sun all day. Drinks reasonably priced.Written 16 April 2019
- As part of a group of moderately overweight, formerly athletic people, who vacation annually in St Lucia we’d seen Fort Rodney several times from a distance.
This year we went. It was fantastic. The views from the Fort and the signal point are worth the effort. When we got done we went to the little restaurant there and had great local food with a great view.Written 28 November 2022
- Hired a private taxi tour around the island. Stopped off at this fort/monument and was met by a "guide". Was not expecting that and felt like we were set up but the man was so informative that it was more than worth the $5 tip we gave him. He taught us about the history of the island and the alternating British/French rule. He also gave us much information about the flora with a hands on demonstration.Written 11 December 2019
- Situated quite close to the cruise dock port, the square is a charming oasis of calm in an area of Castries surrounded by bustling colourful local people going about each person's daily routine. Lots of interesting buildings surround the square. The square is named after Saint Lucia’s second Nobel Laureate, Sir Derek Walcott, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992, and was a pleasure to visit again.Written 8 April 2022
- Paul has a little slice of Heaven on a secluded beach that has zero tourists- just locals and travelers interested in authentic cultural experiences. We learned so much from Paul- he showed us how to cook a traditional meal using vegetables he grew on his farm. He told us abt the history of the island, the slave trade, his ancestors and how they taught him abt medicinal plants and Caribbean cooking. He gave us a tour of his farm and the forest but we still had plenty of time to just relax on the beach. We felt like we experienced the real St Lucia for a day- it was the highlight of our trip!Written 15 February 2020
- Came across the church by accident, saw the door open and in I went. It is stunning with all the painted ceilings.
I was lucky to hear some children practicing for the choir, what a joy to hear.
Sadly there was no candles to light, a great way of boosting income.Written 10 February 2019
- There are two different tours to take here; the Heritage tour and the Chocolate tour. My wife and I took the Chocolate tour. This meant that we walked through the plantation to see the cocoa trees and then we were saw the different stages of the harvesting of the beans, the fermentation, the drying, and the polishing. The real treat was going inside the lab and meeting Cornelia, the chocolatier, who demonstrated to us the procedure to make the chocolate from the beans. To our delight, we actually made some chocolate bars ourselves which we brought home.
We did have lunch on the premises, which frankly was not top shelf. The table beside us was brought a very nice ice cream desert, but when it came for our turn, they suddenly didn't have anything else, and we were given a small dish of a store-bought ice cream.
The tour though, was fun, informative, and worth the time/money.Written 20 April 2022
- War memorial located in the oasis of calm that is Derek Walcott Square in the centre of Castries. Poignant memorial to fallen heroes. My wife and I spent a short while reflecting when we had a short stop off in the area.Written 8 April 2022
- Went to 8:30AM Sunday Mass. The congregation was warm and welcoming. The bishop was even there when we visited, which was a special thing for us. People dressed in their Sunday best like we used to when I was a kid, so I was glad that I had planned ahead and packed a long sundress and light scarf that I opened up to cover my shoulders like a shawl. The Mass was beautiful and I would love to return with my children, to share the experience with them.Written 8 March 2020
- Thursday 16th May and we were out exploring and sightseeing in Castries and we visited the small Bideau Park where this monument is located. The Park is situated with 3 street surrounding it, Jeremie Street, Laborie Street Peynier Street.
It commemorates a St Lucian sea captain who campaigned for freedom and liberty. Bideau Park is also named in his honour.
The red stone monument/bust of Jean Baptiste Bideau, depicted wearing a military jacket, is positioned on top of a tall square base, where there is a plaque with the inscription: -
"Jean Baptiste Bideau 1770 - 1817, born at Desruisseaux, Saint Lucia
A sea Captain who dedicated his life to freedom and heroically saved the life of Simón Bolívar."
In 1796, under the command of the Colonial Governor, he was involved in the emancipation of Guadeloupes slaves
In 1811, under the leadership of Simón Bolívar he took part in the Venezuelan war of independence. Another memorable date was the 14th July 1816, it was on this date that he saved Bolivar from drowning.
Jean Bideau died in Venezuela on April 1817 aged 47. A monument of the man whose life he saved, Simon Bolivar, stands close by, in Bideau Park.Written 26 May 2019
