Road Network

The road network of Saint Lucia is not very extensive due to the mountainous nature of the island. There is almost 1,000 kilometers of paved road, and you drive on the left. There are no highways in Saint Lucia. Most roads are winding and narrow, and lead along the coast. Since the coastal strip is not flat, few roads lead directly along the coast. There is a short 2×2 road from Castries to the northeast, but the other roads are single lane.
