St Lucia Holidays

Bursting with romantic scenery and secluded resorts, St Lucia is the ideal honeymoon spot and perfect place to escape the hubbub of everyday life. Whether you’re visiting as lovebirds or as a family, St Lucia ticks all the right boxes.

Experience an adrenaline adventure like no other by ziplining through the Caribbean rainforest or head to Rodney Bay for a great weekend hangout bursting with bars, restaurants and a buzzing casino. And, for the ultimate island party, be sure to pay Gros Islet a visit for the weekly Jump Up; a St Lucian street festival.

If you’re after something a little more tranquil, St Lucia is also home to honey coloured beaches and beautiful coral reefs that are perfect for snorkelling and diving.

    “If you decide to hike to Fort Rodney, take plenty of water with you. There's a cafe when you get there, but you will need something for the journey.”

    “For a true flavour of St Lucia look towards the music - calypso, soca, and reggae; the flavourful Creole cuisine and the vibrant carnivals, towns, and markets.”
