- I have been to the Eudovic Studio several times and am still in awe of the magnificent work done by Vincent his son, and artisans. This takes memories of St. Lucia to a whole new level with such an artifact……. Not a trinket, magnet, photograph, print or gem, but a genuine piece of local art. The abstract carvings are incredible and I have several.
The Caribbean Islands all have forts, rum, ports, shops, restaurants, and collectibles, but there is only one EUDOVIC!Written 12 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- If you are looking for local crafts and art check this place out! It seems this is a hidden gem as the owners said people don’t seem to know they are there. Please support this business. The owners are so nice and the products are all beautiful. You will be glad you went. Watch carefully for a small sign on the west side of the main road, just south of the town.Written 5 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Pigeon island is calm and very pretty. Reasonable entrance fee US$7 and can be reached by A1 bus from Rodney bay, just ask the driver to take you off route for extra US$6. Walk back to main road for bus back or along the beach.
There are well mapped walks around the island and 2 quiet beaches. The walk to top of Fort Rodney not too bad but more of a strenuous climb to the higher peak.
The views are amazing though.
The Jambe de bois restaurant is lovely, good food and quirky furniture. Good to sit and relax and enjoy your surroundings.Written 17 October 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We visited this attraction on a cruise ship excursion so the guide at the fort was expecting us. His talk about the history of the fort and its rescue in 1980 from oblivion by an American lady who lived on the island added a great deal to our visit.
The fort/battery, built on a hill overlooking the Castries harbor, appears to be just 1 long horizontal concrete wall with room for 1 cannon emplacement and, below ground, storage rooms for artillery shells. The rusty 18 ton cannon now faces inland instead of toward the harbor because, after machinery pulled it uphill from the steep embankment below, the machinery could not turn the cannon around to place it on its swiveling stand/carriage. French ships, in the 1700-1800s, wanting to sail into the Castries harbor from the nearby island of St. Martinique just 20 miles away, often bore the brunt of British shells from this battery. Both countries battled each other at least 14 times for the control of St. Lucia which was valuable to the British as a coaling station to refuel her ships.
The guide took us to a concrete underground room used by soldiers as a temporary barrack while on duty. The room was about as large as a master bedroom, but would have slept 60-70 soldiers. The walls of the room were all white washed now with display cases surrounding the room. Various bottles retrieved from the Castries' harbor were on display. These were grouped by use - ink wells, poison bottles, and French and British wine/champagne/beer bottles. Another small room held information in diagram form of the workings of the 18 ton cannon with a pile of rusty used cannon balls lying on the floor. Various pictures on the wall in this room showed British uniforms for the time period, a period map of St. Lucia with the location of La Toc Battery clearly marked, and a sketch of Government House. A third small room showed how artillery shells in this room would have been stored 5 deep per shelf.
The tour lasted about 30 minutes. 15 seat passenger vans can make it up the hill to the entrance of the fort while large buses stop below the battery to let passengers climb up the hill for their visit. We left the Pointe Seraphine cruise dock around 9isham and had a slow crawl through the center of Castries, bumper to bumper with vehicles - something to remember if taking a taxi. I took this excursion because a visit to La Toc Battery was included. It would need a taxi ride from town otherwise.Written 21 February 2019
- The concept behind the business of 'Zaka' is to create a range of quality hand-produced artwork, from wood normally be used for charcoal production. We Love their Color collaboration, works for me, lively up our home.Written 31 May 2022
- Be happy, life is too short in the words of Ms. Pascal herself. I suggest that every St. Lucian and visitor, take a cool trip down Choiseul to La Maison Creole. Take a trip down memory lane or simply marvel at our St. Lucian history and culture. You won't regret it. Ms. Pascal is an energetic, pleasant woman bubbling to share with you all of her collections, stories, history and more. This made my BEST jounen Kweyol October 30th 2016, a day well spent. Laughing, learning and sipping on some good bois baday....leave a tip, leave a smile, and oh leave a comment.Written 31 October 2016
- The trail is pretty decent and well maintained, we took a stroller on it and only had to carry it a few points. Trouble is, practically nothing is labeled or illegible so if there was a rare tree or whatnot you'd never know it. the herb garden is a joke, hundreds of potted unlabeled plants strewn about. The zoo has a pretty cool collection of iguanas, and the super rare st Lucian parrots, which is nice to see up close. Do this if you have time to burn but don't go out of your way for it, it's pleasant enough.Written 28 June 2011
- If you love the open air, sitting by the water and eating spicy cuisines, then St Lucia is the place to be. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The culture is very warm and welcoming. Street shopping can be fun.Written 28 August 2012
- I passed on several occasions during published opening hours and found the place consistently closed. This was during well-advertised the lead up to independence celebrations. No sign or anything apart from the theoretical opening hours. So I can't comment on actual displays inside. Maybe personal appointment work(?)Written 16 February 2019
- Kermik St Lucia offers beautifully hand crafted pieces like mugs, bowls, plates and more for purchase. The designs are unique and can be personalized to your own taste! Can't get better than that. Since we live in St Lucia we were able to get our hands dirty and make our own piece with the guidance of a fun teacher, Amanda. Thank you so much for this amazing experience. 5 stars all around!Written 21 May 2022
- The image tree is the best place in Sourfriere to buy authentic, local souvenirs from the island. Enjoy!Written 25 June 2017
- As a post card affionado (sad I know) this is a very handy spot for those in the marina also sells stamps and the Marina Office has the post box.Written 18 December 2015
