The island’s current capital, Castries, is the place to browse for duty-free goods like designer perfume and fine crystal, or for hand-made local crafts and souvenirs.
Pigeon Island has served as the home of Carib Indians, a hideout for pirates and a battlefield where the French and the English fought for control of St. Lucia. Visit the museum on the island, located in the restored British officers’ mess building, to learn more about its history. A hike to the ruins of Fort Rodney will provide great views.
Cruises that call on St. Lucia usually call on other islands in the Windward and Leeward Groups of the Western Antilles, such as Martinique, Guadeloupe and St. Kitts.
