Hewanorra International Airport (UVF)

Overview

The smaller of St Lucia's two airports, Hewanorra International Airport is located 34 miles (56km) from Castries and 2.3 miles (3.7km) north of Vieux Fort. Handling roughly 500,000 passengers each year, the facility was originally a military airbase called Beane Army Airfield.

The airport is basic, but clean and well-run. There's not much to do there, but efficient transportation options to all points of the island make the airport a convenient gateway to the pleasures of a holiday in St Lucia.

Getting to the city
