Get lost along some of the back streets if you're renting a car! Great places to get souvenir pics of your cruise ship!

On a day with good weather, this is a scenic spot for photographers. This is just one of the many beautiful spots on St. Lucia.

Nice view of Castries but not much else in Morne Fortune, worth a visit though for the view. Try and go on a clear day so that you can see further.

Ask your driver (or drive yourself if you rented a car) to take you here for a nice panoramic view of Castries. It's definitely worth 10-20 minutes here. And while you are up at the hill, you can see the Governor's mansion, and a little further drive will take you to the local University... which is not all that special,... More

Essentially this is a high hill which has the Governer's residence at the top and offers a great view across Castries

I've been to the Morne tens of times and the view is always outstanding. If you get the chance please go see the postcard view of Saint Lucia. This is honestly the best view of Castries and you will not regret coming here. Yes yes yes !

Excellent spot for getting a panoramic view over Castries. Local vendors are also there selling many different types of homemade souvenirs.

There's an interesting hotel up the steep, twisty road to the top from town. Several buildings make it up. Many have great views of the port.

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.
