After ascending Morne Fortune or the "Hill of Good Luck", with its dramatic views, you will embark on a scenic drive along the winding west coast road to Soufriere, home of the Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you will visit the historical Diamond Estate with its Botanical Gardens, waterfall and mineral baths.
Enjoy a guided tour of the gardens, an oasis of flowers, fruit trees and foliage, all labeled along concrete walkways and a well-maintained gravel path over relatively even ground with a few steps leading to the mineral baths and the spectacular sight of the Diamond Falls. Although one cannot bathe under these falls, the amazing colours of the mineral stained rock face make an excellent photograph. You will have the option of a therapeutic bath in mineral pools fed through a pipe system by hot springs and built in 1784 for the troops of King Louis XVI of France. On your return to Castries harbour, you will stop for photos at the quaint fishing village of Anse la Raye. Snacks and drinks are for purchase at the souvenir/snack bar at the gardens.
