Castries Holidays 2024/2025

St Lucia is a small, beautifully formed island that lies in the eastern Caribbean Sea. Its landscapes are ripe for exploration and include long coastlines punctuated with volcanic beaches and a heart full of thick rainforests. Holidays to St Lucia aren’t just about relaxing and taking it easy as you soak up the tropical atmosphere, they’re also about excitement and adventure.

The island’s capital, Castries, is a dynamic port city and has plenty of the charm that St Lucia is famous for. There’s lots to enjoy in the city itself and it’s also a great base for exploring the wider area.

A place with a colourful past

One of the best things about Castries holidays is getting to discover a city with such a colourful past. Its colonial history can be seen throughout the buildings in the surrounding streets. Unfortunately many examples of colonial architecture were damaged by several fires over the last few centuries, but there are still plenty of historic sites to visit.

One of the most attractive of these is the 19th-century Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, which also happens to be one of the largest churches in the Caribbean. Also worth a visit are Castries Public Library and Government House. Derek Walcott Square is a lovely, quiet place to relax and take in all the historic buildings around it. It’s also ideal for enjoying a spot of people-watching.
