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.
There are a large selection of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for those who are so inclined. Just click on each beach name for more detail concerning that part of the coast.
Soufriere Beach: A quiet beach in the north of Soufriere Town, it is visited mainly by locals. Boaters also enjoy Soufriere as there are a number of spots for boat anchorage.
Another location worth considering is Anse Chastanet. Anse Chastanet features gigantic lush palm trees, which provide cool shady spots for beachgoers to escape the scorching afternoon sun. Rolling green hills add to an interesting contrast to the pale gray sand here.
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.
