This picture-perfect Caribbean paradise has a wild side
Located in the heart of the Caribbean, St Lucia is probably best known as a perfect honeymoon destination. With white sandy beaches, emerald seas and a dramatic mountain skyline, it certainly hits the spot if you’re after a tropical paradise. But you’d be mistaken for thinking this is all a holiday in St Lucia has to offer.
Explore the island’s wild nature while gliding above the rainforest on a canopy tour. Jump in and have a go at one of the wealth of water sports available, from snorkelling to deep-sea fishing. Or leave the beaches behind and dance the night away in the vibrant capital, Castries.
