Shopping in St Lucia
Everyday shopping is within an easy 8 minute drive from Akasha. Most items can be purchased at the JQ mall in Rodney Bay – there you will find groceries, duty free shops, medical center, pharmacy, gift shops etc.
The new larger mall – Baywalk in Rodney Bay is a modern and lively place to shop not only for duty free but also everyday shopping and has even more exciting restaurants.
Duty free shopping is available in the mall and Rodney Bay marina but if you want more Duty Free shops then head for Castries. There you will find Pointe Seraphine and La Place Carenage, both have world class brands and are geared for the serious shoppers.
You will also find good shops in the Blue Coral mall in the heart of Castries.
If you want to see and purchase some original art then visit the gallery in the marina where Llewellyn Xavier, St. Lucia’s premier artist displays and sells his work, llewellynxavier art. He lives just around the corner from Akasha. Also there is a gallery on the way into Castries where you will find art work from local painters – please ask us for directions.
