We left Chateaubelair, St Vincent at 3am so we could get to St Lucia in the morning and enjoy the day around Soufriere town and the Pitons. You could spot the towering twin Pitons way in the distance getting larger and larger as we approached.
We moored along the cliff face of an area called the Bat cave off the town, a marine park, which looked over to Petit Piton rising up 2,460ft from the sea. The crystal blue green waters had fish swimming all around us so we knew it would be great for snorkeling.
Marigot Bay had plenty of boat boys wanting to sell you things. I bought a fruit basket from Thomas while Brett bought fruit from this guy who rowed out in what looked like a bath tub to me.
Marigot Bay was nice to wander around and very tranquil. We went up to the top of the hill for views over the bay, which was pretty spectacular. The bar at one of the resorts beckoned us to try the local brew Piton, which was enjoyed by all given our walk.
We decided to head up the island to Rodney Bay and anchored off The Landings Resort near Pigeon Island and couldn’t believe the amount of space we had. Bliss, no boats close by and no boat boys, yeah! We enjoyed the evening at The landings including watching the sun set.
We went into Rodney Bay town to wander around the town and to check out ready to head to Les Saintes, Guadeloupe. There was a great Tapas bar that served Flat bread pizzas on the waterfront and Piton beer so of course we had to stop.
