Driving Tips

If you enjoy independent travel, car hire in St Lucia is the ideal way to see more of this stunning Caribbean island. However, much of St Lucia is very rural and the roads can be uneven in places. You also won't find many road signs, so a Sat Nav is vital if you don't know your way around.

  • People drive on the left in St Lucia. It's advisable to complete your journey during the day, as a lack of street lighting can make night driving difficult.
  • In Castries, the road system is modern and carries a lot of traffic, but in rural areas routes can be very steep and full of sharp corners. Also there are no pavements, so be aware of animals and pedestrians on the road.
  • Two key roads cover St Lucia, to the west the Castries Gros Islet Highway links the north to the south, and to the east the Castries Vieux Highway links Hewanorra Airport to the north of the island.

Speed Limits

  • On open roads in the countryside: 80km/h
  • In towns this is reduced to 50 km/h

Parking

In the capital, Castries, there are many paid parking spaces, but in other parts of the island you can park almost anywhere so long as you are not causing an obstruction for pedestrians or other motorists.

Driving Laws

If anyone in your rental car drops litter out of the window, the driver could be liable for a fine. You won't find many speed cameras in St Lucia, but the police do use hand held speed cameras. If you're caught speeding they can hand you an on the spot fine. If you need to use your mobile phone whilst driving buy a hands-free kit, as it's illegal to take a call without one. The drink driving limits in St Lucia are the same as those in the UK, but on unfamiliar roads it's always best to avoid alcohol altogether if you're driving.
