This view site was part of our Cosal Tour. It is a nice view spot but because of the very heavy rain I could only snap picture or two and we were on our way. No venders were there.

On Morne Fortune you can have a amazing view of Castries . Local souvenirs can be purchased and you can get some great photos as well . Opposite the lookout is the Governor General House . The down side is the vendors pester you you to buy their goods but they got to make a living right .

Worth a trip definitely. It has some beautiful views and very narrow and winding roads. Take a few pictures and relax overlooking the sea for a few minutes. Not the best photo opportunity in St. Lucia, but worth checking out for sure.

The roads on St. Lucia are hilly and winding. It was quite a ride to get up to Morne Fortune. Some may want to take their sea sick pills! The historic area contains the old fort which is now being used as government and educational buildings. You can also see some ruins, walk to the Inniskilling Monument, and look at... More

Not too far from Castries, up a winding road that will test your will in one of the great views on the island. Definitely recommend you have a local drive you while you relax and look at the scenery. Much of the drive is through wooded area but occasionally a great view pops out and you want to be ready.... More

After a meandering drive up through the Morne area you are treated to some of the best views over Castries. It is a very historic area and there are forts buildings and interesting sights galore. It is really worth the trip. The old colonial house of St. Mark's is an interesting place to stop off for food and for a... More

We liked the drive to Morne Fortune Historic area. Passed local schools, old fort buildings and lovely vegetation along the way. At the park there are guides who for a small tip will explain even more about the area. Definitely worth a visit. You will see William Arthur Lewis a noble laureate grave site and some Inniskilling Monument monuments as... More
