Saint Lucia Rivers

While SAINT LUCIA is commonly known for its pristine beauty at its various beaches, the waterdrop-shaped island is also a place for winding rivers — connecting seaside villages to the forests and mountainous highlands in central St. Lucia. The island and country boasts over 30 streams and rivers, which are geographically spread on all sides. Plenty Saint Lucian rivers share their names with towns and cities, such as Castries (national capital), Dennery, Praslin, Saint Urbain, and Vieux Fort. Starting from the northern tip of St. Lucia and going clockwise, here is a list of some rivers winding past towns, countryside, mountains, and forests alike: Esperance, Trou Graval, Dauphin, Marquis, Sorcière, Grande Rivière du Mabouya, Fond d'Or, Dennery, Praslin, Patience, Fond, Ravine Courtois, Volet, Troumassée, Ger, Ravine Bethel, Canelles, Rouarné, Ravine Rugeine, Ravine Palmiste, Ravine St. Urbain, Ravine Rosette, Vieux Fort, Ravine Michel, Black Bay, Piaye, Balembouche, Dorée, Trou Barbet, Trou Marc, L'Ivrogne, Soufrière, Mamin, Mahaut, Canaries, La Verdure, Grande Rivière de l'Anse La Raye, Roseau, Cul de Sac, Castries, Choc, and Bois d'Orange. The typical St. Lucian vacation involves a scintillating beach and/or relaxing at a resort, but it should also include a canoe trip or two up a nearby river!         Saint Lucia post (↗)
