Our vacations in St. Lucia and Martinique


Castries is the Capital of St. Lucia. It is a preferred port of call for cruise ships, sometimes up to three in the harbour. It is also the financial centre of St. Lucia. The city offers few tourist attractions, apart from the many duty free shops and the large crafts market at the harbour front.
