Good beach on the outskirt of Castries,St Lucia
If you are visiting Castries on a cruise ship and only have limited time for a beach visit then Vigie Beach could be a good choice.When you leave the ship follow the road that takes you pass Castries Airport.When you reach the large roundabout at the end of the runway take the track on the left hand side,this will take you onto Vigie Beach.Walking time is some 20-30 minutes.Taxi available at the cruise terminal if required.
This is a totally unspoilt beach with plenty of shade,good for swimming with just one low rise hotel.
For a View of the City
Cap Moule à Chique Light - the old lighthouse located above Vieux-Fort was built in1912 a concrete or stucco-clad cylindrical tower with lantern and gallery. Tower painted white, lantern red. A short concrete block post near the lighthouse carries the active light. In 2007, I glimpsed the lighthouse from the tour bus and I saw it again from several viewpoints in 2013. It has been restored and is apparently a good place for weddings as there are wonderful views. I have not been up to the lighthouse - only taken photos from afar.
