Driving away from your familiar surroundings, plunge into the fun that this tour offers. Leisurely driving through our capital city of Castries, bypass our local Market, Cathedral, Derek Walcott Square and Central Library, while learning the interesting facts about them all!
Your next stop is La Toc Battery, an authentic 19th century British fort built to defend the island against foreign invasion of the vital coaling stations of St. Lucia. La Toc offers a fabulous representation of the British military in the late 19th century. You will see dimly lit tunnels, a shell store, an original shell lift and old ventilation shafts.
Travelling on you will pass banana plantations set between undulating hills before stopping for a brief visit in the rustic village of Anse La Raye with tiny wooden houses - some 100 years old.
Enjoy the country scenery as you travel towards beautiful Marigot Bay. This tranquil blue lagoon is a paradise surrounded by green hills and a palm-ringed shoreline. Marigot Bay is an exceptionally beautiful natural yacht harbour and a haven for all. Three words capture its setting: "magical", "exotic" and "idyllic".
St. Marks is an old colonial style house, which is strategically placed high up in the hills and offers a panoramic view. Capture the magnificence of the Castries harbor amidst the deep blue sea with a green backdrop. On a clear day, view Martinique out in the distance along the northern coastline. Enjoy some typical Creole snacks and a tasty rum punch or fruit juice after your tour of this colonial home.
As the bus descends Morne Fortune, you are sure to return "home" with a smile.
Please note: Light, comfortable clothing recommended with comfortable shoes or sandals, preferably with rubber soles. There are steps at La Toc Battery as well as St. Mark's (25) from the ground floor to first floor.
