Overview Of The Port Of Castries

About Castries
Castries is the capital of the Caribbean island of St Lucia, located between Martinique and St Vincent. It is the largest of the Windward Islands.

Places of interest include Soufriere, an 18th century city located in the shadow of the twin Pitons (the famous mountain peaks of St Lucia), Diamond Botanical Gardens and Waterfall and Pigeon Island, on the north west tip. Once home to Carib Indians and a former pirate hideout, it is now part of the St Lucia National Trust and features beaches, a restaurant and the historic remains of the barracks and garrisons where the French and English once fought.

For snorkelling, head to Anse Chastanet or Anse Cochen. Helicopter tours and an 18 hole golf course offer visitors even more choice.

A lovely stretch of white sand can be found at Choc Beach, a 20 minute taxi ride away from the dock area.

Dining options range from Creole cooking, fresh fish dishes and jerk chicken, to international cuisine. Piton Beer is the locally brewed tipple.
Cruise Terminal
The Cruise Terminal at Pointe Seraphine in Castries is on the outskirts of town. There is a small shopping precinct at the terminal and taxis are also available. A water taxi operates between the harbour and another shopping mall, La Place Carenage in the centre of town. Castries is within walking distance from the cruise terminal.

Car hire is available at the dock area and buses run from the station in downtown Castries, although they often do not run on a set schedule.

Ships may also occasionally anchor and tender passengers ashore at other locations such as Pigeon Island, Rodney Bay and Soufriere.
