If you’re a bit of a romantic, you’ll want to know this: St Lucia, an island named by 17th century French colonists, has some of the most seductive scenery in the Caribbean. The rainforest-cloaked Piton Mountains will blow you away and many hotels here are perfectly positioned to offer the most dramatic views.

  • Hike in the jungle

    Explore a range of forest trails in St Lucia’s verdant hills. Tropical birds flutter amidst the trees and lizards bask in sunlit glades. Try the Tet Paul Nature Trail outside Soufriere, which gives you a stunning vista over the Gran Pitons and the town below.

  • St Lucia Jazz Festival

    Dive among coral reefs

    Surrounding St Lucia is an astonishing network of coral reefs, which are home to thousands of species of fish and crustaceans At Anse Chastanet beach you can dive or snorkel straight from the sand. Expect to see brightly coloured parrotfish, spotted moray and anemones.

  • Scuba diving

    Relax on the beach

    St Lucia is the Caribbean as you imagine it - white sand beaches, palm trees and piña coladas. There are few experiences more pleasurable than an afternoon spent on a sun lounger, the sound of the surf in the distance and the scent of sun cream in the air. Should you be in the mood for something more lively, you can charter a boat and explore some of the island’s hidden coves.

    “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.”

    “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.”
