Next time you visit Saint Lucia, consider a totally different way to enter the country – by boat. The vast majority of travelers get to Saint Lucia by plane, arriving at the regional airport in Castries (SLU) or through the major airport in Vieux Fort (UVF). But why not opt to arrive by sea, either through ferry service (coming in from Martinique) or private vessel showing up in one of the beautiful bays dotting the island. Stunning Marigot Bay would be our top choice. Right there at the docks, next a small row of shops and locally owned restaurants, is a customs and immigration office where you can quickly get your official entry stamp. Once the paperwork is out of the way, stroll over to one of the many waterfront bars, order a few cold Pitons and tune in to harbor life in this tranquil corner of the Caribbean.
