St. Lucia is one of the most lush and mountainous islands. It has some of the most spectacular views and rainforests to explore. The island is most famous for being home to the Twin Volcanic Pitons that rise half a mile straight up out of the sea. The Pitons located in Soufrière, are by far the most photographed landmark on the island. The Gros Piton is 2,530 feet high while the Petit Piton is 2,438 feet in height. The Pitons are a world heritage site and popular with hikers and climbers who visit the island. Most guests hike the Gros Piton Peak which is an easier climb and tours are provided by the Soufrière Foundation, a non-profit group that’s dedicated to help preserve the Pitons.
St Lucia is also home to the only drive-in Volcano in the world. Known locally as Sulphur Springs, this major attraction is a must-do while on island. The journey takes you on a road that runs right up to and through the crater of the volcano. The volcano releases hot steam and sulphur with boiling mud and water. The volcano which is now considered to be dormant had its last eruption in the 18th century.
St Lucia is also home to some of the most beautiful pristine palm fringed beaches in the Caribbean, together with magnificent rain forests, cascading waterfalls, incredible rivers, papaya orchards, stunning bird life and lush tropical gardens. The island is lush and beautiful and has a very rich history and culture with very friendly locals.
Saint Lucia is divided into four main parts. You have the South of the Island where you will find the traditional town of Soufriere, home to the world-famous Pitons and also a section of stunning resorts. The village is low key and is a more local.
Then in the North of the island you will find the area of Rodney Bay which is home to an incredible beach, lots of restaurants, a large supermarket and some nice shops. Rodney Bay also has a beautifully landscaped Marina with restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. It’s the ideal spot to enjoy a waterside lunch or by night you will see some great nightlife.
From Rodney Bay you can reach Pigeon Island National Landmark. Pigeon Island is dominated by two small peaks which made excellent observations posts during St Lucia’s more troubled past. Pigeon also has some wonderful white-sand beaches perfect for swimming. The popular Friday Night “Jump Up Street Party” is in Gros Islet close to Rodney bay and is a must if you want to experience a more local vibe. Also in the North of St Lucia you will find the popular area of Cap Estate, this is where many of our luxury villas in St Lucia are located. Cap Estate was once a thriving 1500 acre sugar plantation covering the entire northern tip of St Lucia and now it is the islands most exclusive residential development and home to some of the nicest villas on island. The St Lucia Golf Club which is the Island’s only 18th hole course is also located here.
The third main area is Castries which is the capital of St Lucia and is situated half way between the North and South of the Island. Castries is the main hub for the cruise ships to dock. Here you will also find a selection of duty-free shops near the harbour. The area has a wonderful beach called Vigie Beach which is lined with Palm trees. A trip to Castries should include a visit The Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, with its colourful murals located next to leafy Derek Walcott Square park. There is also a local market nearby. The fourth main area of St Lucia is Marigot Bay home to some of the best St Lucia Resorts including Capella Marigot Bay and Resort. Marigot is easily reached from both the international and Regional airports of the island.
