A town with a storied history, today Soufriere is a popular resort destination along the west coast of St. Lucia which tells its tales mainly through Mother Nature. Nearly all of the most important attractions exist outside waiting to explored, but those who prefer cultural spots or places with entertainment value over natural wonders won't be disappointed either.
You'll discover a large selection of beaches to visit in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, if some members of your party are so inclined. You can click on the name of the beach for more information concerning that specific beach.
Soufriere Beach: The sand is of a fairly dark color, but the main draw here is spectacular view of some of the world-famous pitons. Located within a quaint, pleasant town, you'll find this idyllic spot perfect for walking or simple relaxation.
Another location to consider is Anse Chastanet. Anse Chastanet is flanked by the Jade Mountain Resort which makes public access here difficult, but not impossible. You can get a water taxi to drop you at this beach.
Jalouise: This crescent-shaped little beach used to be one of the island's black sand beaches until it was covered with powdery white sands. The real draw, though, is its arrestingly beautiful location in between some thoroughly impressive, world-famous pitons.

Tourists who enjoy the natural environment are likely to have a good time at. Morne Coubaril Estate is a 250-acre 18th century plantation estate that has been restored and is now used as a museum that shows visitors what life on the plantation was like. Not only is the estate house available for touring, but the grounds are as well, which include shacks in the worker's village that served as the plantation workers homes, and a working mill. The grounds are still used in the production of agriculture to this day, and those on the 30 minute tour will get a glimpse of how the lands are put to use. After your tour, make sure to visit The Pitt, the on-site restaurant, for a Creole lunch buffet, which is available by reservation only.
Diamond Falls is another site that's popular with visitors. One of the top natural features in the Caribbean, Diamond Falls is famous for its mineral rich water and beautiful grotto.
