Northbound Vieux Fort, St. Lucia  

Vieux Fort

Vieux Fort is the location of the Airport. The anchorage is surprisingly pleasant and it is great to pick guests up here. There are customs at the commercial dock but you must walk around to the airport to go to immigration. Park your dinghy at the fish dock and enjoy a beautiful walk at the really nice end of St. Lucia The south is poorer, more interesting and less crowded. This is where the really good kite boarding is and some of the longest, emptiest beaches in the Caribbean.
