In the city of Vieux Fort, we find everything that is best in the Caribbean mosaic: sandy beaches, majestic mountains overgrown with lush vegetation and crystal clear water. Saint Lucia is one of the most picturesque islands of the Lesser Antilles. Its southern part – especially the Vieux Fort district – has many fascinating, worth seeing places. What's more, the island is not as crowded with tourists as the Dominican Republic or Jamaica, thus creating the perfect conditions for a peaceful holiday in the bosom of nature. The magnificent Sandy Beach is the perfect place to relax in a hammock, sunbathe or walk at sunset. The surrounding beaches are also suitable for water sports, such as scuba diving, snorkeling, and windsurfing. A private off-road car trip is a good way to familiarize yourself with the turbulent history of the island and visit the Pitons Management Area. Unforgettable impressions will also be provided with a cruise on the Caribbean Sea or a helicopter flight over the archipelago. Riding along the sandy beach and admiring the fantastic Caribbean views will be an unforgettable experience for both beginner riders and those experienced. This form of rest has great popularity on the island and is willingly chosen by newlyweds who spend their honeymoon there.
The great advantage of a holiday at Vieux Fort is unlimited access to delicious delicacies of the Caribbean cuisine, including freshly caught fish and seafood. Good local food in a relaxed, home-like vibe is served by The ORBIT Restaurant & Bar. For an aromatic bouyon (a thick soup based on meat and vegetables) or grilled meat with rice and red beans, it is worth to stop by "The Old Plantation Yard". While relaxing on the Sandy Beach, it is worth visiting The Ugly Mug-Grill & Stout, where you can try the Piton beer produced on the island and delicious drinks prepared on the basis of Bounty rum and exotic fruit juice.
Vieux Fort with its picturesque marinas, virgin nature, and delicious food is a perfect place for a family vacation, honeymoon or holidays with friends.
