Where to Go in Saint Lucia
Rising half a mile out of the sea on the southwest coast the twin ‘pitons’ are iconic symbols of the island and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They are truly stunning – and can even be explored on foot. If you like a little challenge on your holiday, why not take five hours to climb 2,619 ft up Gros with a guide?
The island’s dramatic landscape only adds to the beauty of its beaches and azure waters. When you are fully relaxed, however, there is plenty for nature lovers to explore both on land and at sea. A guided hike through the island’s dense rainforest is well worth the effort – you’ll be rewarded with lush foliage, waterfalls and the rare opportunity to spot the Amazona Versicolor Parrot, the island’s national bird.
St Lucia’s stunning wildlife is even more bountiful at sea. Guided boat trips can lead you to pods of spinning and spotted dolphins as well as pilot, sperm and orca whales.
If you feel even more intrepid you could try a zip-wire adventure, a helicopter tour or a visit to one of the world’s few drive-in volcanoes, which allows guests to experience the sights and scents of bubbling mud and sulphur springs.

When to go
The temperature variations throughout the year are very slight with the average being around 26 – 28 C. High season is between mid-December to mid-April when there is typically less humidity and rainfall. However, Saint Lucia can be visited year-round and often there are some great offers to take advantage of if you are travelling during the low season. The main hurricane season is from mid-August to mid-September so we recommend travelling earlier in the summer months.
