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. 

Beaches

Soufriere Beach

You'll find several beaches to visit in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at several locations, for visitors who are so inclined. Click on the beach names to get additional information about that section of the coast.

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.

A second alternative 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: The beach is a few miles south of Soufriere on the southwestern coast. From Soufriere, take Baron Dr south until you reach the end. Take a right and you'll be led to the Jalousie Hilton on the beach.

These examples are only a few of what's on the island. If you'd like to dig deeper, you can obtain more information here.
