Soufriere

St Lucia’s former capital, founded by the French, was once home to large sugar plantations. Now a sleepy, chilled-out harbour town, it still carries a little of the old French character, mingled with colourful local charm. There are photogenic fishing boats and rustic wooden houses along the waterfront and the town’s Saturday market is a great chance to pick up some fresh fish and island spices for the barbecue.The tropical blues and pinks of Soufriere’s rooftops stand out against the deep emerald backdrop of the surrounding volcanic hills, the distinctive peaks of the Pitons rising dramatically in the distance. For visitors, it’s the area’s beautiful rainforest, sulphur springs and waterfalls that attract the most attention, with some particularly energetic souls even choosing to climb the iconic Gros Piton. The resorts in and around Soufriere focus primarily on relaxation, and in this magnificent natural setting, it isn’t hard to see why. It’s well worth taking to the water on one of the many boat trips available to enjoy the best views of this particularly scenic part of St Lucia.
