Soufriere, Saint Lucia
Seabourn prefers to call in at Soufriére Bay on St. Lucia’s eastern side, away from the busy capital of Castries. It is a perfect example of a Seabourn hideaway, tucked under the conical peaks of Les Pitons, inactive volcanic peaks that, along with their nearby valley, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town is compact and flat, a great place to stroll around and listen to the lyrical French patois of the local people. A short way away, you can indulge in one of the world’s only “drive-in volcanos” whose steaming vents and odorous fumeroles give the place its sulfurous name. Nearby is the Anse Chastenet Resort, one of the world’s most renowned and set on a breathtaking stretch of beach.
