Vieux Fort Tours

5 reviews

Vieux Fort, as its name implies, was settled as a French fort, an installation which dates to the 17th century and can still be visited today. The town later came to prominence as the center of the agriculture industry and it remains a busy commercial center to this day.

The surrounding area is of more interest than the town itself. Start your explorations with stunning views at Saint Lucia’s southernmost point, where a lighthouse looks south towards Saint Vincent.

And on the Atlantic coast you’ll find the long Anse des Sables beach. Be prepared for bigger waves, stronger winds and fewer facilities than you’d experience in west coast resorts, but also far fewer people. The beach faces the Maria Islands, and there’s a meeting point at the southern end of the beach for expeditions to this protected off-shore habitat.

Practical Info

Vieux Fort is at Saint Lucia’s southern tip. It is adjacent to Hewannora International Airport, the arrival point for most long-haul flights to the island. From there, buses and taxis head out to resorts and hotels, concentrated on the west coast.
