This was a fantastic trip. Waking up to this view with coffee, the day ahead was part of the best moments here
Arrived at St. Lucia early evening and was met by Islander Car Rental who basically Navigated us to the Stunning Villa, if not for them, I’m not sure we would have had the confidence to make it up the hill. LOL.
Janus – Super host. Knowing we couldn’t hit the grocery store left bread, juice, fruit, so we could wake up in the morning to the view and some breakfast. We walked to the gas station and picked up Beers, the night of arrival – because you know – priorities.
Walking and Driving Tips:
Walk and explore Soufriere at any time or night. At First it feels like out of your comfort zone but push through it. The Folks are friendly, the goats, chickens, wild dogs are docile (harmless). They all do their own thing.
Driving- the island has a treasure trove of beauty and secrets but braving the roads is the right of passage to find it. If you’ve rented a car and get to the road and think- ‘’What in God’s name…this can’t be right’’ then you’re on the right track. Keep going.
Beach trifecta – Advice go to all 3 & pick your favorite for the trip
Anse Cochon – my personal Favorite. Not crowded, best waves, $10 pp to get into resort then you can use the $10 towards a drink or your meal. No Pushy vendors when we were there. Drive is 45 mins- 1hr – more of an effort.
Anse Chastanet – beat snorkeling, best food but smaller section of public beach – no entry cost. 12 mins. drive. Sketchy road.
Sugar Beach – Best view, tiny public beach, free entry and chairs. Long walk in and out if you don’t buy a drink – easy drive. 12 mins. Drive.
Tip – At time their VISA Machines don’t work. Bring some cash just in case
Anse Chastanet Beach Bar for lunch – Great roti & catch of the day.
Fedo’s – just down this road to your right in this community. Amazing local joint for lunch.
Ruby’s Pizza & Grill – Close by. Great Atmosphere. Ferrance the owner is great and will tell you what to order.
Orlando’s – 5-6 courde fixed menu to die for when we went. Around $60-$80 pp US.
Janus is incredible. Get to know him. Don’t feel bad to ask any questions. He really is willing to help and genuinely wants you to have the best time. THANK YOU!!

P.S – there is a big Bee that may come in the villa in the morning when you have all the doors open. He finds his way out and his name is Carl.
WEATHER IN SAINT LUCIA
While most places in the world have four well-defined seasons, its proximity to the equator means that this is not really the case for the island of St. Lucia.
