A short drive north of Castries brings you to the main tourist areas of Gros Islet (famous for its Friday Night Jump Up) and Rodney Bay with their vast array of shops, hotels, restaurants, and the famous Reduit Beach. Pigeon Island National Historic Park, joined to Gros Islet by a causeway, is one of St Lucia’s most popular relaxation spots and site of the famous St Lucia Jazz Festival held in May each year. For the cricket enthusiast, the Beausejour Cricket ground where international matches have been played, is not too far away. From Castries drive south along the west coast road with its fabulous scenery and of course, Marigot Bay. Visit the small fishing village of Anse La Raye with its Friday night fish fry, the larger fishing village of Canaries and of course Soufrière with views of the Gros and Petit Pitons which dominate the horizon.
