Stunning holidays to St Lucia
When somebody mentions St Lucia, images of rich green foliage clinging to the sides of majestic mountain peaks alongside a clear aqua blue Caribbean ocean and soft sandy beaches spring to mind. It’s no wonder that an island as photogenic as this is incredibly popular amongst the honeymooners, hikers, naturists, couples, and escapists amongst us!
This mountainous Caribbean island has plenty to offer its guests and ensure they have a holiday of a lifetime;
- Hike up the most scenic of the twin peaks, Gros Piton; one of the most widely recognised natural wonders in the West Indies and enjoy sensational views across the ocean. If hiking isn’t for you, go for a boat ride view of the peaks on Piton Bay.
- Forget drive-in Starbucks, here you can go for a drive-in volcano! Get up close and personal to mud pools and vents that blow out sulphurous steam in the active geothermal zone of Sulphur Springs.
- Take a helicopter and ride high in the sky over lush rainforests, offshore reefs, and natural bays. The views are truly unworldly!
- Visit one of the Caribbean’s most prestigious yachting marinas at Rodney Bay where a sophisticated nightlife will help you relax late into the evening.
- To taste nothing but pure luxury whilst in St Lucia why not head to the Jade Mountain Resort for an afternoon of spa treatments and pampering – believe us when we say you won’t regret it!

Sensational above and below sea level
When it comes to heading under the waves and immersing oneself in the marine world, St Lucia often hits top world rankings. With over 150 different species of fish to be found and vibrant coral reefs in abundance, it’s no wonder diving in these warm St Lucian waters are often described as going to an underwater carnival. Among the healthiest of reefs around the island is Trou Diable (Devil’s Hole) where divers can head 100ft down to watch schools tropical fish such as grunts and chromis go about their day. Here, all diving abilities are welcome and diving styles possible no matter whether you’re after a night dive, shallow dive, deep dive or beach dive, just don’t forget your waterproof camera!
If you’d prefer to ride the waves rather than dive under them then consider heading to Sandy Beach at the Southern end of the island. This beautiful beach leads on to the bay of Anse de Sables, an area with strong breezes, protected waters and a lack of obstacles, making it a sensational location for kitesurfers and windsurfers to spend an afternoon.
