Golden sweeps of sand, emerald rainforests and film-set scenery – everything you want from a Caribbean holiday can be found in St Lucia.
Beaches and beyond
This charming and unspoilt corner of the Caribbean
is so much more than a beach retreat. You’ve got a dramatic mountainous landscape that begs to be explored, lush rainforests to get lost in and rare wildlife species to spot. Head inland to find sparkling waterfalls surrounded by botanic gardens and an actual drive-in volcano.
West African and European influences have given St Lucia its distinct character. In the north you’ll find upmarket malls and modern marinas backed by seafront restaurants. Head south to find candy-coloured houses, barbecue stalls by the roadside and fish fry-ups on the beach.
Adventure-seekers will love exploring St Lucia’s diverse landscape, with adrenaline-fuelled activities on land and in the sea. You can zip-line through the rainforest, hike up the Piton Mountains and take a dip in the Diamond Falls. There’s every kind of watersport on offer, from kayaking and windsurfing to deep-sea fishing and jet-skiing.
