Choose your ideal Castries holiday from The Co-operative Travel, and you'll be able to explore the very best that St Lucia has to offer.
Sitting in a natural harbour on the island's north-west coast, Castries has an archetypically glorious Caribbean beach of its own, but with many others also within easy reach, you'll be spoilt for choice.
The port is a stopping-off point for many Caribbean cruises, so the facilities to cater for these well-heeled visitors are all present and correct. But that doesn't mean that other holidaymakers don't receive an equally warm welcome - far from it.
There is a wide range of hotels which you can choose as the base for your package holiday or all-inclusive holiday. Whichever one you've chosen, the local delicacies such as breadfruit, jackfish, lobster and callaloo soup should not be missed.
St Lucia sways to the beat of its music, and most St Lucians certainly have it in their blood, so every hotel regularly puts on its own showcase. The island's famous jazz festival takes place each May, while a treat for visitors at all times is the weekly 'jump up' at nearby Gros Islets.
St Lucia is an easy island to explore, and offers some magnificent unspoilt sights, including lush green forests, rugged Atlantic coastline, and the Pitons, whose two volcanic sulphur springs are a UN World Heritage site.
With so much to do and explore, a Castries holiday from The Co-operative Travel is sure to leave you wanting to come back for more!
