Soufriere is NOT safe. People are rude and old men try to stop and take your money. They may try to tell you this is a friendly place. IT IS NOT! People park on the wrong side of the very tiny road and then expect some tourist who is not familiar with driving on the left to navigate around them and the two-foot drop off ditch. People just walk out in front of you. Cars driving way too fast and taking their half out of the middle of the road. We will NEVER come back to St. Lucia!

My wife and I recently stayed at a resort close to Soufriere and we don't recommend the town for the faint of heart. Although the resort had top-notch amenities, staff, food and service (as well as security) the town was depressed, dangerous, and uninviting. I don't write this to disparage the town or its people, but rather to spare visitors the vicissitudes of a visit that will challenge expectations of a safe, quaint seaside village filled with eateries and tee shirt shops.
We felt unsafe when walking the streets, and unwelcome in the local grocery store. We were initially pleased at the discovery of a local out-of-the-way beach, unmolested by tourists and tours, but this was short lived, as we were confronted by two men bearing machetes who took a pointed interest in our beach bag. Needless to say, we didn't remain long.
The town of Soufriere is a place for those who would seek out cultural authenticity in all its grit and glory. It is, however, less suited for those whose expectations may have been formed during visits to other islands where there is a more equitable distribution of wealth within a more mature economy; St. John, USVI comes to mind, as do Grand Caymen, and--from what I've heard--Turks and Caicos.
If you plan on staying in an all-inclusive resort, there are few places I've travelled with more sheer natural beauty than St. Lucia. The Pitons are a marvel and deserving of their status as World Heritage Foundations sites. The town of Soufriere, however, is a different story, and craves wary walking.

25/10/17 Robbed at gunpoint, during the night, whilst on a mooring in the bay. 4 men boarded or chartered catamaran armed with guns and knives. Money and valuables stolen. Sunsail /Moorings apparently should have warned us about the danger of mooring in this bay but didn't.

Mount Soufriere is the largest active volcano in the Caribbean and a must see photo opportunity for any traveller.

The streets are narrow, lovely to explore. The bay is beautiful with the Pitons adding to the beauty of this place.

A nice bay with a more traditional looking St Lucian town all in the shadow of the Pitons and you are just starting to enter the 'drive in' volcano

If driving from Castries first type "Mirador Piton Santa Lucia" - outstanding views of the Pitons and Sourfiere town and bay beneath.
Then drive down to the free Hummingbird public beach which is right in the Sourfiere bay, to have a close up sea level view - just beautiful.

When we travel to the islands of the Caribbean, it’s the local life that we are most interested in. We want to see what the locals see, and experience it first hand. If you are in St. Lucia, Soufriere will give you just that, and the scenery at the base of the Pitons is breathtaking.

The harbor and pier were easily accessed by the boat and the people were very welcoming. The restaurants and accommodations nearby were very nice too.
