Awaiting Your Return From Shore
The shoreline of St. Lucia is nothing short
of spectacular, with its hidden coves and unspoiled beaches. The two
sugarloaf-shaped cones, known as the Pitons, are the most prominent sights.
They are the islandís highest peaks and its most impressive landmarks. The
best view is available as your ship cruises past en route to Barbados.
The ship is scheduled to dock at Pointe Seraphine. The center of town
can be reached on foot in about 15 minutes. Taxi rates are government
controlled, but it is advisable to agree on the fare with the driver
before setting out.
Adjacent to the pier is the Pointe Seraphine duty-free shopping complex.
Shops in town cater mostly to local clientele. The islandís best-known
products include hand-screened batik fabrics, pottery, and straw
Seafood is a frequent item on many menus. Creole and typical
Caribbean-style dishes are popular; they can be sampled at the Green
Parrot and San Antoine, both located at Morne Fortune, with superb views
of the bay.
