St Lucia Honeymoon Can Be Paired With SiteSeeing in Soufrière
The town features several interesting sights in the area. Originally built by the French in 1764, Fort Charlotte is located in the Castries region of St Lucia, and features all the classic elements of Enlightenment European scientific fortification design. Morne Fortune, the hilltop that crowns the fort, offers views of the Caribbean island of Martinique in the distance.
Mourne Coubaril Estate near Soufriere is an active plantation restored to give visitors a taste of the life that no longer exists. The Estate is a working farm that still produces a variety of crops, including cocoa and coconuts, and walking tours are conducted by estate staff wearing period dress. Daniel's Ark is a new attraction designed especially for children.
Back in SoufriÃ¨re, there are a variety of restaurants that suit all palates and all price ranges. Indian food is a popular local speciality, as is the fusion of elgant French and spicy Caribbean cooking.
After lunch, hike down to the beach in the shadow of the majestic Pitons. The scenery will provide you with lasting memories of your St Lucia weddings and honeymoon. If you're still interested in exploring around Sourfriere, consider investigating the Diamond Botanical Gardens, as well as the bike trails that wind through sugar plantation Anse Mamin. For the ultimate romantic getaway, check into a local hot spring and mineral bath - SoufriÃ¨re means "sulphur" in French, and these hot baths have given the town its name.
