Car Hire Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) Useful Information

Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) is the main international gateway to Saint Lucia, a beautiful Caribbean island known for its stunning natural landscapes, lush rainforests, and pristine beaches. Here's what you need to know when hiring a car from Hewanorra Airport:

Driving in Saint Lucia:

  • Saint Lucia follows British-style driving, which means driving on the left side of the road.
  • Speed limits are typically posted in kilometers per hour (km/h), with common limits being 40 km/h in urban areas and 60 km/h on rural roads.
  • Seat belts are mandatory for all passengers in the vehicle.
  • Be cautious when driving on winding and hilly roads, especially in the interior of the island, as road conditions can be challenging.
  • Road signs are generally in English, and distances are in kilometers.

Sightseeing and Attractions:

  • Saint Lucia is a paradise for nature lovers. Be sure to explore the island's lush rainforests, waterfalls, and volcanic landscapes.
  • Visit the iconic Pitons, two volcanic peaks that rise dramatically from the sea on the west coast of the island.
  • The town of Soufrière, near the Pitons, offers thermal baths and the Sulphur Springs Park, known as the "drive-in volcano."
  • Enjoy water activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.
  • Take a drive along the scenic west coast, known for its beautiful beaches and charming fishing villages.

Distances and Main Routes:

  • Hewanorra Airport is located on the southern tip of Saint Lucia, while the capital city, Castries, is on the northwest coast.
  • The drive from the airport to Castries takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on traffic and road conditions. You'll primarily use the East Coast Road and the Sir Arthur Lewis Highway (Route 1).
  • The Pitons, located in Soufrière, are about 1 to 1.5 hours away from the airport.
  • The island's road network is relatively well-maintained, but be prepared for some narrow and winding roads, especially in the interior.

Scenic Routes:

  • The drive along the west coast from Castries to Soufrière is incredibly scenic, offering breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea, banana plantations, and fishing villages.
  • Consider exploring the interior of the island, where you can take in the natural beauty of the rainforest, waterfalls like Toraille Falls, and the stunning Diamond Botanical Gardens.

Driving in Saint Lucia allows you to explore the island's natural beauty at your own pace. While the roads can be challenging in some areas, the breathtaking landscapes and attractions make it a rewarding experience. Just remember to drive cautiously and enjoy the stunning scenery that Saint Lucia has to offer.
