Rodney Bay
Rodney Bay is over a mile long with a man-made causeway at its northern end that connects Pigeon Island to the mainland and shelters the whole bay. Within the bay is a large, completely protected inner lagoon, accessed via a man-made channel between Reduit Beach and the town Gros Islet. At the Marina's complex there are restaurants, boutiques, banks with ATM facilities, public telephones, a supermarket, and a car rental agency. Fleewinter has a good selection of apartments & Boutique Hotels within walking distance from the marina.
Vieux Fort
Home to St. Lucia's main international airport, Hewanorra, and the island's second largest town, Vieux Fort is somewhat off the beaten track. Sporting one of the longest stretches of soft, sandy beach, this official port of entry offers a more unspoiled version of the island's charm. Anse de Sable Bay, on Vieux Fort's reef-protected Atlantic coast, is one of the Caribbean's finest windsurfing and kite-surfing locations, with the state of the art equipment for rent.
Soufrier
Established in the 18 th century, Soufrier is St. Lucia's oldest town and was the capital when France controlled the island. Home of the island's UNESCO World Heritage Site, Soufriere offers dramatic backdrops for visiting boats. Soufriere is an official port of entry. Anchorages can be found at Anse Chastanet, just north of Soufrier Bay, and off the Humingbird Beach north of Soufriere town. Modern and colonial buildings stand side by side; painted in pastels, many have pretty balconies with gingerbread fretwork.
Cap Estate
North of Pigeon Point is Cap estate, an old 1500 acre sugar cane plantation. It is now dotted with some of the finest homes and rental villas in St. Lucia. Cap Estate is also home to an 18-hole golf course. We have a large selection of St Lucian villas in this area and is one of the most popular places to stay while holidaying in St Lucia.
Pigeon Island
North of Castries lies Pigeon Island National Park. This 44 acre site was once an island accessible only by sea. The causeway, joining Pigeon Island to the mainland was built in the 1970's. Grasslands, dry tropical forest and beaches are the geological interests of the park. It was once a British garrison used to observe the French activities in the neighbouring Martinique . Today Pigeon Island is the centre stage venue for the annual St. Lucia Jazz Festival. An interpretation centre tells the story of Pigeon Island. There are two restaurants on the island and a couple of quiet beaches. There is an entry fee to get into the park.
Gros Islet
Gros Islet is the newest town in St. Lucia, having been recently promoted from a village to a town. It is the location of the Beausejour Cricket Grounds where one day test cricket is played, part of the 2007 Cricket World Cup was played there. It is the administrative centre of the Gros Island Quarter, a region of Saint Lucia which includes the island's northernmost point, Cap Point.
Marigot Bay
Marigot Bay is located on the western coast of the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, 3.75 miles southwest from Castries and a short distance from the Saint Lucian National Marine Reserve. It is surrounded on three sides by steep, forested hills.

The inland portion of the bay forms a hurricane hole, used to shelter boats from hurricanes.

Marigot Bay is a historic landmark, having been the site of a number of battles between the French and British navies.

The bay was used as the setting for the 1967 film adaptation of Hugh Lofting's Doctor Dolittle books. Scenes of the shipwreck, Great Pink Sea Snail, and the construction of the harness for the Giant Lunar Moth were filmed in the bay.

The American novelist James A. Michener famously described Marigot Bay as "The most beautiful bay in the Caribbean."
