The island of St Lucia boasts the reputation as the most beautiful of the Caribbean islands. Rightly so, since the beauty is boundless.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Pitons – the magnificent twin volcanic peaks – provides a dramatic backdrop to many luxury resorts on the island. The scenery is breathtaking with romantic waterfalls, pristine beaches, palm tree plantations, lush rainforests, wild flora and tropical birds.
St Lucia is perfect for honeymoons and weddings, as well as family activity holidays. Nature hikes, plantation tours, seasonal turtle watching, kite-surfing, snorkelling, diving, deep sea fishing and golf, are a hint of what is on offer.
When not exploring, there are plenty of spas and luxury resorts with stunning pools to choose from. Yachts and catamaran’s are also available for charter.
The warmth and radiant charm make St Lucia a magical retreat. British and French influence blends with the Creole culture, creating a beautiful fusion. The island’s unique cuisine partly reflects this, in fact one of the Caribbean’s most famous restaurants, The Cliff at Cap Maison, serves magnificent French-West Indian gastronomy.
For a truly memorable visit, go during the St Lucia Jazz Festival. Usually held in May, the event celebrates music from both local and international artists.
