Why St Lucia?
St Lucia has been described as the emerald jewel in the Caribbean’s crown, with its lush rainforest interior, fringed by white sandy beaches. The majestic Piton Mountains rise out of the turquoise waters, providing a dramatic backdrop to this island paradise which has long been an award-winning honeymoon destination.
But, while it is undeniably romantic and enduringly popular for weddings, St Lucia has so much more to offer: zip-wire through the jungle or mountain bike down the plunging hillsides; don a snorkel or diving kit to discover the depths; set sail or jump on a jet ski to explore the coastline; gallop horses along the beach; or indulge your passion for ball sports on one of the countless golf courses or tennis courts.
Nature’s bounty is in abundance wherever you turn on St Lucia, from waterfalls and volcanic hot springs to tropical rainforest and glorious gardens bursting with flora and fauna. Exotic birdlife is particularly prolific in this part of the Caribbean and dolphins and whales are also a common sight in St Lucia’s waters so, whether you want to explore on your own or join a guided excursion, just don’t forget your binoculars!
The culture and cuisine of St Lucia are a vibrant reflection of its rich history, drawing on Carib, African, French and English influences. The distinctive and delicious local food celebrates the best of the island’s produce, from fresh fish to exotic fruit, blending spices and flavours to excite the palate, alongside the skilfulness of world class chefs creating the very best international cuisine.
Wherever you go in St Lucia, you will be warmly greeted by the friendly people and highly trained resort staff. Safe, family-orientated, easily accessible from the UK via direct flights, and with a year-round moderate tropical climate, this stunning island is hard to resist.
