Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia

The south west corner of St Lucia must be one of the most photographed in the world. The Pitons, a pair of jagged volcanic peaks are instantly recognizable and together with the tropical rainforests, soft sandy beaches and blue green waters of the Caribbean, ensure that this is your quintessential island paradise

St Lucia, the only country in the world to be named after a woman, is 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, and said to resemble the shape of a mango! Here, the unique combination of Caribbean, British, African and French cultures combine to create a blend of food, music and traditions that are truly enchanting and inspirational.

One of the more underrated Caribbean islands, Saint Lucia is the ultimate low-key destination to relax and unwind. With an abundance of clean, sandy beaches and incredibly clear water, it’s the perfect place to have a little time to yourself. But if you want somewhere with a bit of a buzz, head to Castries, the island’s capital, for the famous market and souvenirs aplenty.

The people of Saint Lucia are always welcoming – visit once and you will return!

British Airways have daily direct flights to St Lucia from London Gatwick, and Virgin fly direct on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (winter months) and Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Sunday (summer months), also from London Gatwick. Flights take approximately 9 hours. Special offers are often available.


Why St Lucia?

“I first visited St Lucia in 1975, and although expecting to see some evidence of cricket, one of the things that surprised me was to see rugby being played on the island (the last thing that I expected to find!). Castries, the capital, was very cosmopolitan, with a bustling and colourful market, and it was where I experienced my first Caribbean pepperpot dish and curried goat” – Mike Williams, co-founder of The Caribbeanist





The Caribbeanist’s St Lucia Top 5

1. A must see for all visitors is a trip to the southwest coast and the protected Unesco World Heritage site where you will find the dramatic twin peaks of Gros Piton (which you can climb) and Petit Piton.

2. Visit the dormant La Soufriere volcano (also known as Qualibou or La Grande Soufriere), which is described as ‘the world’s only drive-in volcano’. Here, at Sulphur Springs Park, locals and visitors can bathe in natural hot springs and enjoy the health benefits of the mineral-rich volcanic mud.

3. Chocolate tourism is now a big deal on St Lucia, catering to visitors who seek, celebrate and possibly crave chocolate. Historically a producer of cacao for export, St Lucia is now becoming famous for the manufacturing of chocolate. Why not visit one of its many plantations, like the Rabot Estate (owned by Hotel Chocolat), where you will see (and taste of course) chocolate being made.

4. For a real ‘up close and personal’ view of the rainforest, a ‘treetop adventure’ at Dennery’s Treetop Adventure Park is mandatory. Here you can hike, cycle or (and this is where the ‘treetop’ title comes from), zipline through the treetops faster than you can say ‘Tarzan’)

5. Pigeon Island National Park is on the west coast, near the northern tip of the island, and is joined to the mainland by a causeway. Here you can trace the history of the island at the museum, visit the lookout point at the top of Fort Rodney, or if you visit in May, experience the annual St Lucia Jazz Festival, with its abundance of live music and delicious food.
