Explore the beauty of St Lucia

One of the most visually stunning Caribbean islands, St Lucia is decadently decorated with rolling verdant hills and circled by a ribbon of velvet beaches. It boasts pristine sand and lush tropical rainforests, containing a wealth of wildlife. The unique culture here comes as a result of an intermingling of European heritage, predominantly French and British, along with Indian Creole. The famous twin Piton peaks tower over the south of the island while the north is where you’ll find the larger cities such as the capital, Castries. Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival held each May is one of the most memorable events in the Caribbean!

Why visit St Lucia?

Nestling between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, St Lucia – with 98 miles of coastline – is a postcard-perfect island paradise. Even inland, the lush tropical rainforests and twin volcanic peaks of the Pitons, which soar 2,500ft into the sky, make for an idyllic island experience.

Of course, St Lucia is a wonderful place for all kinds of holidays. If you want a family holiday, an all-inclusive, a honeymoon, or just want an adult-only break for some well-earned peace and quiet, St Lucia has a holiday to suit your needs. There are so many kinds of holiday to choose from: you can explore the local culture, take part in ocean watersports, or just watch the world go by with a relaxing beach holiday – St Lucia has something for everyone.

The unique culture of the island’s 174,000 inhabitants is a result of its French and British colonial history, mixed in with that of the indigenous people – and this melting pot is behind many of the islands delights: from amazing food to the fabulous carnivals, St Lucia is a truly fabulous holiday destination.

For active holidaymakers, there are activities on land and sea, making the most of the islands obvious strengths – from trekking, or riding the sky tram, in the rainforest to scuba diving and windsurfing, you’ll find the lot. The famous Piton volcanic peaks tower over the south of the island and make for a wonderful adventure, too. Or why not drive into the crater of the island’s other volcano, La Soufriere.

Of course, there are the beaches: Anse Chastanet Beach is one of the most picturesque stretches of sand in the whole of the Caribbean. Rodney Bay attracts the crowds, and Choc Bay is for the quieter beach experience. For a truly secluded beach, try Marigot Bay on the western coast of the island: or head south, as most of the southern coast’s beaches can only be reached by boat. You won’t be disappointed – they are all black volcanic sands, romantic hideaways, and perfect for snorkelling and diving, and those views of the Pitons.

Food and drink

St Lucia’s food is truly delicious and takes in the island’s heritage and, of course, the sea. The national dish – green banana and saltfish is a must. But also try other St Lucian delicacies such as langouste (Caribbean lobster), Lambi (conch meat), fried plantain, callaloo soup and breadfruit.

Piton Beer is the locally brewed lager and is perfect for cooling off under the hot sun. And there is a local soft drink called Golden Apple for quenching your thirst. And, of course, there’s rum for the true Caribbean experience – Chairman’s Reserve being the connoisseur’s choice of local spirit. For more information on food and drink visit our travel guide.

Street parties and festivals

The Gros Islet Friday Night Street Party is held every month, and is the Caribbean’s longest running party of its kind. Go along and soak up the atmosphere with the Caribbean music, BBQs, dancing and drinking.

Celebrating 25 years of bringing great music to the island, Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival is one of the most recognised events in the Caribbean calendar. With the addition of the Arts element 3 years ago, featuring fashion shows, spoken word events and art exhibitions, the festival has really grown in popularity. The 2016 event dates are to be confirmed but it is likely to be for 11 days from Thursday 28th April until Sunday 8th May with over 15 venues and over 50 world acclaimed artists. The vibe is amazing! We really recommend it!

Yearly, in mid-October, is the Feast of La Marguerite, or La MagWit in Creole. And in August is La Woz (or The Rose). These amazing festivals are run by two historic societies dedicated to singing the praises of the rose and the marguerite flowers, and epitomise the spirit of the islands.

In the middle of summer, July brings the Saint Lucia Carnival, a grand and exciting celebration featuring St Lucian art displays, cultural music and dance, great food, community and a fantastic parade to top it all off.

If all these attractions are not enough to persuade you, then St Lucia’s markets sell locally made silk screened fabrics, art, straw weavings, pottery and wood carvings from the many local artists. And the island is even great for a multi-centre holiday as it boasts two airports, opening up travel possibilities to all of the Caribbean and beyond.

Hotels for everyone

Our hotels, too, have something for everyone. The Coconut Bay is a true family hotel with a splash-park and, being very close to the airport, is perfect for visiting with children. The BodyHoliday is one of the best spa hotels in the world and a truly wonderful all inclusive, experience. The holiday includes spa treatments, yoga classes, watersports and even smoothies.

Then there’s the St James’s Club Morgan bay, perfect for families and couples who want to lose themselves in the glow of the St Lucian sunshine. And the Kids Club will keep the children occupied, too.

But, for a true escape from it all, Rendezvous is a boutique couples-only resort in a tranquil and beautiful tropical garden and on the pretty Malabar Beach, replete with perfect soft sand and fully serviced by the hotel. Perfect for an adult-only romantic getaway.
