I loved the small streets, coloured old houses and covered market place in Soufriere. The market has a wide selection of locally grown spices and fruits and the stall holders are happy to talk about what they grow. You can walk happily through the streets which are not spoiled by souvenir shops (I only spied two), and the small bay is a nice place to stop and just look at the view to the pitons. the Botanic garden is in Souffriere and well worth a walk around; you will see a huge range of colourful plants and flowers, many labelled, and a small waterfall and mineral baths.
I ate lunch in the Belle Vue Creole restaurant on the waterfront - excellent local food, clean and tidy with friendly service.
I was travelling solo, and felt totally safe and comfortable everywhere

If driving from Castries first type "Mirador Piton Santa Lucia" - outstanding views of the Pitons and Sourfiere town and bay beneath.
Then drive down to the free Hummingbird public beach which is right in the Sourfiere bay, to have a close up sea level view - just beautiful.

After a custom day tour of the island, we ended up in Soufriere bay. We did some swimming and snorkelling.

I must admit that there were not many restaurants or clean toilets nearby. They didn't serve any food as well and just drinks. None of them also took any credit cards and i didn't have any cash.

When we travel to the islands of the Caribbean, it’s the local life that we are most interested in. We want to see what the locals see, and experience it first hand. If you are in St. Lucia, Soufriere will give you just that, and the scenery at the base of the Pitons is breathtaking.

We took a sea and land tour that included time on the water by boat in Soufriere Bay. We also were dropped on Sugar Beach to enjoy snorkeling and the sunset. It was a special day and we enjoyed the experience.

Soufriere is NOT safe. People are rude and old men try to stop and take your money. They may try to tell you this is a friendly place. IT IS NOT! People park on the wrong side of the very tiny road and then expect some tourist who is not familiar with driving on the left to navigate around them and the two-foot drop off ditch. People just walk out in front of you. Cars driving way too fast and taking their half out of the middle of the road. We will NEVER come back to St. Lucia!

Mount Soufriere is the largest active volcano in the Caribbean and a must see photo opportunity for any traveller.

The harbor and pier were easily accessed by the boat and the people were very welcoming. The restaurants and accommodations nearby were very nice too.

We came here almost every day on our holiday. Well priced beds and beers on a beautiful beach. The fishcakes from one of the little shops were delicious!!

The snorkeling is good, there is a cave full of bats that you can swim right up to and hear and see the bats.

The beach is totally free and public. There is no obligation to rent beds etc

There is free and plentiful parking, although it is not busy at all.

The shower and bathroom facilities are very nice and cost $1 to use.
