Information from Viator
Island short tour seeks to give persons who do not want the long drive to Soufriere to still experience some of St. Lucia's charm and beauty with a small group or as a private tour. Enjoy the amazing scenery as we drive the west coast road with stops at Morne Fortune (where the last battle was fought between the French and the British), Marigot Bay (a heaven for yachters), banana plantations, and the village of Anse La Raye (to experience the experience of village lifestyle). Time may also permit "rhythm of rum tour" which is a tour of our rum distillery. Tour St. Lucia with A+ Tours.
We are have two (2) suggested starts; 8:30 am and a 1:15 pm. From the cruise port its a short drive through the city center up to Morne Fortune the area of the fourteenth (14th) battle between French and British. There is still so much history in that area; the military baraks, mess hall, soldier quarters, horse stables, prisons, the list goes on. From there its a fifteen (15) minute drive to Marigot Bay for more sightseeing and some amazing views of the bay from the view point. Nick-named hurricane hole, Marigot Bay is a yachters paradise. Nice bay, yachting facilities and a host of restaurants in and around the bay are just some of the things that keep people coming back to the area. Our final stops would be the banana plantation where we do a little "banana 101" which by the end you should be able to grow your own bananas at home. Finally a walk around the fishing village of Anse-La-Raye where we do some more sightseeing and see what village activities are taking place. When there's fishing or mending of nets the village can be a buzz.
