Ernie George, General Manager of Stonefield Estate Villa Resort & Spa, picked me up for a tour of Soufriere and the surrounding area, which included a closer look at the Pitons – not close enough to touch, but you can walk up the mountains if you so desire. We walked through Diamond Botanical Gardens, Waterfall and Mineral Baths
Before driving by St. Lucia Sulphur Springs to glimpse the volcano. We stopped at Jalousie Plantation to walk on the exquisitely beautiful beach (one of the few resorts with white sand) and drove by Ladera, one of two St. Lucia resorts that features open air rooms where the fourth wall is missed. We drove through the quaint town of Soufriere and ended our tour with lunch at Stonefield Resort.
I learned quickly how many wonderful accommodation and activity options St. Lucia offers. A return trip is in order!
