Castries and the North
Castries, the capital city, and the area north and just south of it are the island's most developed areas. The roads are mostly flat, straight, and easy to navigate. The beaches are some of the island's best. Rodney Bay Marina and most of the resorts, restaurants, and nightspots are north of Castries. Pigeon Island, one of the important historical sites, is at the island's northwestern tip. About 15 minutes south of Castries lies lovely Marigot Bay, which is both a yacht haven and a lovely destination for landlubbers.
