C a s t A w a y T o u r

Experience total immersion in Roots Culture & Traditions on a C a s t A w a y  Tourunique in Saint Lucia and the Caribbean. Located on St. Lucia's most beautiful unspoiled beach at Yukahu Bay aka Anse L'Ivrogne / Sévoigne (Kwéyòl) within The Pitons World Heritage Site on the SW slope of the Gros Piton.

At Yukahu Bay every day is different depending on Jah plan, the only constants are the Mystic Nature, Peace & Quietdelicious Food & Beverages and enjoying yourselves.

Our C a s t A w a y  Tours are by reservation only to insure our guests have a high-quality experience in a remote wilderness area of St. Lucia.

Nah rushin'on da beach!

We operate on your schedule... feel free to do as much (or as little) as you want.

You decide how you spend your day
(no large groups, no wasted time repeatedly herding in/out of vans,
lost hours spent in transit or tour cut short/eliminated because of time constraints).

In Yukahu Bay you feast peacefully in the shade of a traditional grass roof shelter (not a box lunch in the sun).

The day before your visit we call in our crew, make preparations, harvest fruits & vegetables and pack-in supplies on an as-needed basis.


Please keep in mind, all funds support St. Lucia's only sustainable development project directly benefitting the Carib community of La Pointe (Choiseul).
