First settled in the 1660s, St. Lucia is the perfect blend of European and Caribbean cultures. Coupled with stunning mountainous landscapes, breathtaking sea views, immaculate beaches, and a tropical climate, St. Lucia is a picture-perfect paradise and a fantastic escape for some much-needed winter sun.
What can you do in St Lucia?
See the Pitons
The twin volcanic peaks of Pitons are a UNESCO world heritage site that many consider one of the island’s most beautiful sites.
You’ll be able to spend time hiking and exploring each peak, or you can take a helicopter or boat tour for a different perspective. To get the best views, though, head to Soufriere or Sugar Beach.
Visit Pigeon Island
This beautiful small island was once inhabited by pirates who would raid passing ships. The lush, tropical landscape provides an intimate canopy to hide from the world.
Dotted throughout the island are historical points of interest, such as the abandoned military fort, which still stands today. The tiny island has also developed a mini-culture of its own – with a lovely jungle restaurant, beach vibes, and plenty of fun (or relaxation) to be had.
Stroll through the Tet Paul Nature Trail
If you’re bored of wiling away your time on the southern beaches of St. Lucia, then head to the community-led Tet Paul Nature Trail.
This 45-minute stroll will show you some of the best views St. Lucia has to offer, and you can also explore (and sample food) at the organic farm, meet locals, and have a more immersive experience.
