Getting around: transport in St Lucia

Air travel

There are two airports in St Lucia: Hewanorra International Airport at Vieux Fort (UVF) is located 40 miles south of Castries, and George F. L. Charles Airport (SLU) on the outskirts of Castries. For more information about air travel in St Lucia, please visit www.stlucia.org.

Car hire

Cars, 4 wheel drive vehicles and scooters can be booked in advance through your travel agent or at the airports or car rental offices on the island.

Minibus

Minibus is the most popular mode of transport in St Lucia. These buses run up to varied times depending on the route you’re taking. Buses to Gros Islet, for example, run until around 10.00pm (longer on Friday nights when the weekly “jump-up” takes place at Gros Islet). However, there is no scheduled bus timetable.

Helicopter transfers

Helicopter transfers are available from Hewanorra to Castries.

Water taxi

Water taxi is a popular way to explore the coasts of St Lucia – popular water taxi destinations include Rodney Bay, Soufriere and Anse Chastenet.
