A quaint fishing village that is picture-perfect with fishing nets hanging to dry and brightly-colored boats bobbing in the harbor.

When traveling to St Lucia by cruise ship this is my favorite beach to visit. It is a 30 minute walk from downtown or 20 minutes from the cruise terminal across the harbor. If you want a lonely visit walk to the roundabout and enter...More

Called in for a short visit when driving along the west coast. Nothing extra special apart perhaps the 'murals' along the wall near the church. Some street stalls offering the usual kind of items, but one lady did manage to find a couple of folding...More

We passed through daily and it is a place of contrasts. It is very poor and many approached wanting handouts, young, old, drunk, sober even the dogs all wanted something. Most were not too pushy but still not fun. The folks we approached and talked...More

I have actually seen that most of the tourists stopping here were just checking the shopping. I would rather recommend to spend your probably short stop in the village to look around and see these small pitoresque houses and definitely visit the old church with...More

Avoid. Locals surly and resentful. Stallholders mainly selling Tat at inflated prices and make sure you check your change. As with most of St Lucia, you have to work hard to get along as an independent traveller. This island is dominated by all inclusive hotels...More

This was a stop on a recent cruise excursion. The overall vibe was that the people selling from their homes were very desperate and I probably would not opt to go there alone. The upside is there is a lot of local artisans selling their...More

Our shore excursion stopped here. There are some vendors who sell right from their homes and at some stalls at the beach. The beach itself is pretty but I sensed the locals really didn't want to see tourists. I sure wouldn't venture here without a...More

This charming village has a lovely rustic feel. Apart from the fishermen who may well be preparing fish for market, there are some interesting local houses and a pretty church - sadly in some disrepair. It’s off the beaten track, has a small beach but...More
