The mineral baths were originally built in 1784 for the French troops of King Louis XVI, so they could benefit from the therapeutic waters.
The two original baths were restored with a WATER TEMPRATURE THAT MAY REQUIRE YOU TO ADD COOLER WATER TO BRING TO A COMFORTABLE TEMPRATURE RANGE. Additionally there are three pools feed from the overflow from the orginainal tanks. These pool are situated in the open and the temprature of the water is pleasantly warm. The tepid water is clear and used by local bathers as well as visitors to the Island. Bathing in the waters is highly recommended for people who suffered from chronic rheumatism, sore joints and muscles.
On site there are changing rooms for visitor’s convenience and also a small shop and restaurant.
“I don’t know if the the Diamond Mineral Baths have medicinal qualities but they sure are relaxing! We visited this romantic landscaped waterfall and garden as an afternoon trip while staying in Soufriere, St. Lucia.”
