We finally made it to the end of this journey! Our last full day in St. Lucia was a tad bit bitter sweet since we came to know the island so well it almost felt like home but we knew our real homes (back in NY) with our real beds were awaiting us. We designated this as our chill day where we would do our final explorations of the Castries area. Our first stop was the Castries market which I was so excited to finally visit. I must say I was really disappointed by the lack of merchandise options there was. Almost all the stands had the same product and those that didn't were extremely over-priced. Personally I wouldn't recommend putting the market on your itineraries, there are so many better "attractions" this island has to offer. I ended up buying all my souvies from a chain gift shop at the mall in Rodney Bay.
Our next stop was the closest beach to our apt. which was La Toc beach. We came to find out that this beach was owned by Sandals (major resort chain) so it wasn't completely accessible to the public but we had no hard time getting in. We caught some sun and a couple of waves and were off to lunch at Las Tapas back in the Rodney Bay area. Food was delish and the drinks even more so this spot is top of my list for shizzle!
We ended our day by catching our last Lucian sunset at Viggie Beach and our last meal at Brown Sugar. Totally recommend this last one for local food and inexpensive meals overviewing the marina. The one-woman show that ran the kitchen and doubled as a waitress was extremely nice and super attentive. My only advice would be to give yourself time when going here (as in you're not borderline-passing-out hungry) for the reason mentioned above.
All in all our trip to St. Lucia was a dream! One I still think about from time to time, especially now that school has taken over every breathing second of my life. I enjoyed our super local, über "on-a-budget" trip so incredibly much and I truly wouldn't have had it any other way.
