Local Landmarks

Honeymoons in St Lucia on a visit to Castries can involve a lazy day in the sun, or a fun-filled excursion. Sun-seekers should head to Vigie Beach, just to the north of the town. This is a beautiful white beach stretching far along the coast line and makes the perfect place to stretch out on the edge of the Caribbean with your loved one. Other beaches in the area include Malabar Beach, Choc Beach and La Toc Beach – all of which are within very easy reach of Castries.

Those who want a little culture might be interested in taking a look at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, which is located in Derek Walcott Square in Castries. This is the largest church in the Caribbean, and is well worth a visit. The cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Castries. The interior of the cathedral is decorated with a mural painted by noted St Lucian artist Dunstan St. Omer.
