St Lucia

One of the most scenic islands in the West Indies

St Lucia is an island of contrasts. Explore the bustling capital of St Lucia – Castries, take time out to enjoy the unspoilt splendour of the lush, tropical rain forests of the interior. Visit the volcanic peaks of the Pitons and of course enjoy the coastline which includes the hidden coves found to the north of the island. St Lucia is an island stepped in tradition, something that you are sure to experience during your visit. Here are our top five things to do whilst in St Lucia:

Climate Information

Hot and tropical climate throughout the year, tempered by sea breezes and north-eastern trade winds. The driest period is from February to May although it should be noted that short tropical showers can occur throughout the year.


The Pitons

Probably one of the most iconic views in the world, The Pitons are two giant mountainous volcanic plugs situated in the south-west of St Lucia near the town of Soufriere. The Petit Piton is 743m high and the Gros Piton is 771m. There are three options to view The Pitons; by air, by sea or, the most popular way, by car or taxi. There are great views from Soufriere, but a local taxi driver will take you to the best spots.

Rodney Bay

Rodney Bay is one of the most popular destinations on the island. It’s the home of many fashionable hotels, shops, restaurants and bars, making it a great place to visit night and day. There’s also street dining with exotic cuisine as well as local mouth-watering delicacies. If you’re looking for something more relaxing, try one of the many spa treatments which are available on the beach front or in one of the hotel spas.

Rainforest Adventure

Situated near Rodney Bay, in the north of St Lucia, you can travel up and down the mountain side in the rainforest aboard an eight seater gondola. Gliding over the tree canopy surrounded by giant ficus trees and bird life. For the more adventurous, there’s a zip-line down the mountainside.


St Lucia – its current tag-line is ‘Lift Your Senses’ – and it truly does!
