About the location
Tucked into St Lucia’s west coast, Soufriere is a little town with a big reputation. It counts gorgeous colonial architecture and a colourful seafront among its gifts, with an exciting dining scene that mixes authentic Creole eats and fine dining. The nightlife is worth a mention too, with lots of locals bars where you can sample the island’s beloved rum. The beautiful Anse Chastanet beach is less than half an hour’s drive away, famous for its vibrant HD colours – green rainforest, white sand and deep azure waters. Soufriere is also the gateway to the island’s finest natural attractions. You’ve got the Sulphur Spring, the ‘drive through volcano’ known for its bubbling hot springs, and the exquisite Diamond Falls waterfalls wrapped up in a shiny bow of exotic botanical gardens. Then there’s the Pitons, twin pillars of towering rock thick with green vegetation that act as a gateway to the town.
