Discover St Lucia

St Lucia’s dramatic coastline is one of the most photographed in the world, with the steep-sided Pitons sloping sharply down to the water, via a strip of golden sand. With a beach for every day of the year, jungle hikes and stunning coral reefs we go back to St Lucia time and time again.

Take the plunge

Visit the dramatic Sulphur Springs Park in the crater of Soufriere volcano. Billed as the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano, enjoy a dip in bubbling pools and therapeutic hot springs. Find out about St Lucia's mineral baths on our blog.

Go whale watching

There's a wealth of whales and dolphins to be admired off the coast of St Lucia. This area of the Caribbean is also a breeding area, so you might even catch sight of a family. See more of St Lucia's top sights.

Rainforest rambles

Head inland and discover St Lucia’s rich rainforests, bursting with spectacular views and wildlife. Explore them with a guide on foot, or for thrill seekers, race through the canopy on zip lines.

Marigot Bay

Surrounded by dramatic forest-covered hills, the beautiful harbour of Marigot Bay is the perfect spot to relax, admire the turquoise Caribbean and enjoy a sunset drink or two. It's the ideal honeymoon hangout

Hike the Pitons

Perhaps St Lucia’s most striking characteristic is the Pitons, two iconic volcanic peaks rising 771m. Climb to the top and be rewarded by a once in a lifetime view. If adrenaline's your thing, how about a spot of mountain biking?
