WHAT YOU VISIT

The Mud Baths
Located on the island's southwestern side near the town of Soufriere (a name that means "place of sulphur"), the Mud Baths offer a soothing refuge for tired muscles. Relax in the warm mineral mud bath, apply volcanic mud all over and stroll to a nearby waterfall for a refreshing swim and to rinse off.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Morne Viewpoint for view of the Castries Harbor & Northern Landscape. Marigot Bay viewpoint overlooking one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean.

REFRESHMENTS
A thirst-quenching drink will be served after your dip in the mud bath at Mud Baths.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Your scenic drive takes you through banana and coconut plantations, two traditional fishing villages and skirts the fringes of the rainforest. Marvel at the spectacular twin peaks of the Pitons as you descend into the town of Soufriere.
