As most people visit Saint Lucia for its beaches. The main resorts – home to the most pristine beaches and best sunbathing conditions – are located on the west coast, while Pigeon Island on the northern tip of the west coast is a designated national park with two beaches. In addition to the beach resorts, there are some interesting ruins of buildings that were used in France and Britain’s battle over the island.
Further down the west coast are the upscale resorts of Rodney Bay, where you’ll find the island’s most luxurious five-star hotels, a grand marina and busy Reduit Beach, a long stretch of white sand with crystal-clear waters. Further south you’ll reach capital city Castries and picturesque Marigot Bay, followed by the more secluded Anse Cochon Beach and Anse Chastanet Beach – silver-sand beaches that offer the island’s best snorkelling and diving opportunities. The less crowded east coast is a secluded windsurfing hotspot.
If you fancy a day away from the beach, a trip to see the twin peaks of the Pitons – the island’s signature landmark – is always rewarding. Visitors can ride through the trees on a cable car or zipline at the National Rainforest, home to birds of paradise, exotic flowers and the namesake Saint Lucia Parrot. St Lucia’s volcanic landscape can be experienced first-hand at Sulphur Springs, the ‘world's only drive-in volcano’ – a natural hot spring located in the middle of a collapsed crater. Take a dip in the hot spring, rub on some volcanic mud and relax in the hot tubs. The water and mud are naturally rich in iron oxide, sulphur and other minerals believed to be good for the skin.
While famous for its delicious rum cocktails, jerk chicken and banana salt-fish, every type of cuisine and restaurant can be found on Saint Lucia, from sushi restaurants to pizzerias. Boucan Restaurant at Hotel Chocolat is a great place to dine out with a view – most dishes on the menu contain cocoa of some sort, which sounds strange but is great for chocolate fans – while The Cliff at Cap Restaurant at Cap Mason Hotel serves French and West Indian cuisine in a cliff-top location overlooking the ocean. Another restaurant that comes highly recommended is Dasheene, where diners can feast on modern reworkings of traditional Saint Lucian fare with stunning views of the twin peaks.
