Top Tips from our Experts

Charlie

Destination Manager

“Start your island escape in style, take a scenic helicopter transfer to your hotel. You'll be amazed by the beautiful green island, the views are spectacular and breath-taking.”

Val

Destination Specialist

“If you decide to hike to Fort Rodney, take plenty of water with you. There's a cafe when you get there, but you will need something for the journey.”

Omkar

Destination Specialist

“For a true flavour of St Lucia look towards the music - calypso, soca, and reggae; the flavourful Creole cuisine and the vibrant carnivals, towns, and markets.”
