Zaka Art Café (Soufriere)

Visit this typically Saint Lucian establishment, where amazingly tasty artisan coffee made from locally grown beans meets art. The handmade zaka masks on sale at the café are now one of the island's classics. With their stretched and pointy faces, the colourful masks come in a variety of shapes and sizes, making for a perfectly Caribbean souvenir. Meals are also available at the café, but make sure you book in advance if you want to stop by for a traditional creole lunch or dinner.


While Saint Lucia may not be the top travel destination for shoppers in search of luxury fashion brands or high street discounts, there are certainly a number of places to keep your eyes peeled for in terms of charming souvenirs and local products.
