    Our evening at Gros Islet Fish Fry was an absolute delight from start to finish. Located at the top of St. Lucia, this lively event is a must-visit for anyone craving a taste of authentic Caribbean cuisine and culture.

    From the moment we arrived, we were swept up in the infectious energy of the atmosphere. The sounds of lively music filled the air, and the scent of sizzling fried fish beckoned us towards the bustling food stalls.

    We wasted no time in sampling the local delicacies, and we were not disappointed. The fish was simply divine – fresh, flavourful, and cooked to perfection. The portion sizes were generous, ensuring that we left feeling satisfied and content.

    But it wasn't just the food that made our experience memorable. The vibrant atmosphere added an extra layer of excitement to the evening. We found ourselves dancing along to the rhythm of the music, surrounded by locals and fellow travellers alike, all united in the joy of good food and great company.

    This beach is so nice and feels almost private. We walked just on the other side of the rocks for a private feel. The rock formations are nice too and there is a nice little drink stand with food.

    Absolutely gorgeous, only concern was the small drop off as you enter water and quite difficult to get out. However, that might just be where we were at the Starfish resort.

    great location - beautiful views over the sea and coast - love to watch the boats come and go. But all a bit run down and tired - its part of the attraction I know. A few dodgy drug deals going on not overly attractive

    We day tripped here from our Air BnB two times on our trip to St. Lucia, mostly for the snorkeling. The reef is roped off in one area to keep the boats out which is nice. The water here has nice clarity and the reefs were very impressive with a wide variety of fish on display. Even though this is a resort, the beach is public use and the staff were accomodating of non guests. We also ventured further north up the beach to snorkel near the pier and spotted sea turtles which was a highlight! The beach to the north of the main area offers a lot more sand and some more surf for the kids to play in as well as a burger bar.

    Overall, a must visit on your trip to St Lucia if you plan to snorkel.

    Do not let the outside of this church fool you! The interior of this Church is spectacular. Wow. Beautiful, quiet and serene. Enjoy!

    Really nice beach and for $20 USD you can rent two chairs and an umbrella for the day. Spinnakers is a beach bar that has good food and drinks. The water was very clear and beautiful. The only drawback was the locals selling goods and a bit more intrusive than I would have liked. But definitely worth.spending a day or two at if you have the time.

    A lovely quite beach around a 25 minute walk from the cruise port.
    the walk takes you alongside the airport runway.
    We found a pleasant very small beach bar with around a dozen sunbeds and relaxed all day

    This beach is mainly occupied by the Sugar Beach Hotel but the public are allowed on it. You can take a boat from Soufriere harbour or travel by car along the entrance road to the hotel which is long and very steep. You then have to pay for parking and can walk down to the beach. Much of the beach is taken up by hotel parasols and loungers on the sand but you may be able to hire these. The snorkelling is to the left of the jetty when looking from the sea. Although the water is deep it is usually very calm and the undersea views are very good. The area is roped off to protect the marine environment form boats. There are also floating sun beds in the sea but these belong to the hotel. The public areas of the beach can get very busy. It is worth looking around the hotel grounds but you may need to intend to buy a drink or meal. The restaurants nearest the beach are high quality but not cheap. You should be able to take the free hotel transport back to your car by waiting at the stop. Well worth visiting.

    Very nice beach. Upside, not many people there and fantastic view and breeze. Downside, quite a bit of trash laying around and some seaweed....worse on the western side of the beach. 2 nice beach bars. The Reef Beach Cafe is the better one.

    Arrived here after our big let down at the rum distillery and it was closed. The lady's there quickly opened for us so we could add to our growing collection. A massive thanks for your help and looking forward to the new collection that we saw many thanks again

    Lots of booths, mostly all selling the exact same stuff. Seek out the few with unique items. You can also go any day of the week, there are always plenty of them open.

    I was fortunate to be staying in a lovely hotel on a beaturiful beach. The walk to the business section was short and although the number of shops were limited, it was a beautiful little town to be enjoyed.

    The Malabar Beach restaurant is part of the Rendezvous hotel.
    We had two meals here both of which were very good.

    Morne Fortune is a panoramic view point above the St. Lucia capital. I wouldn't suggest going on foot as it's a steep climb up.
    By car it's around 5 to 10 min. Views are really great - you see the capital, surrounding hills and the port beneath you.
    Beware, it can be pretty crowded and difficult to park when cruisers are in the port.
