One of the Caribbean's most scenic islands, St Lucia is characterised by its soaring Pitons, lush rainforest, and pristine tropical beaches.
Surrounded by the turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea, St Lucia is best known for its exceptional natural beauty, its green mountain landscape offering spectacular opportunities for adventure, from hiking the UNESCO World Heritage Pitons to zip-lining through the rainforest. Fringed by coral reefs, St Lucia is a brilliant destination for both snorkelling and scuba diving; the Anse Chastanet reef is the best on the island for its variety of marine life, including more than 150 species of fish.
St Lucia's vibrant culture and charming colonial architecture can be best experienced in its bustling harbour towns, with the capital, Castries, home to colourful open-air markets, luxury bars and high-end shopping. Soufrière is ideal for those seeking a more romantic getaway, its nearby hot springs, waterfalls and hiking trails making this one of the most beautiful parts of the island.
Our luxury St Lucia holidays are tailor-made to suit you, with our expert Caribbean specialists are on hand to personally design every aspect of your trip. With luxury boutique hotels and secluded beaches, St Lucia is a truly romantic destination for couples, especially those on a St Lucia honeymoon. Honeymooners can experience everything from accommodation with private swimming pools to romantic dinners on the beach. With its direct flights from the UK, abundant watersports, and all-inclusive resorts, St Lucia is also a popular Caribbean island for family holidays.
With a tropical climate, St Lucia is warm all year round, with average temperatures ranging from 25°C to 32°C. The best time to visit is between November to May when the weather is driest and at its sunniest.
Peak season in St Lucia runs between mid-December to April when the weather is consistently warm and dry, while hurricane season runs from June to November and it’s best to avoid the island during those months. The best time to travel is May as the weather is still hot and the crowds will be thinning out.
Comprised of two volcanic plugs named the Gros Piton and the Petit Piton, which are colossal enough to be seen from all around the island of St Lucia, this UNESCO World Heritage Centre may be tough to hike but is more than worth the effort.
Begin your ascent through lush forests with your friendly guide, use ropes and roots to climb, claw your way to the top, and you’ll find yourself confronted with indescribable scenes. You’ll feel an overwhelming sense of achievement and on top of the world as you gaze down at the villages and towns below, knowing that you’ve conquered a mountain.
Considered one of the most important monuments of St. Lucia’s history, this awe-inspiring landmark is simply not to be missed.
Boasting ruins of military buildings, not one, but two dream-like white-sand beaches, an exquisite restaurant serving local cuisine, a historical pub, and a truly one of a kind lookout point at the top of a historical fort that offers visitors an incomparable view of the astonishing coastline. This island is an absolute must for honeymooners looking for a day of romantic strolls and a secluded, exclusive slice of paradise.
If you’re into long lazy strolls on the beach, feeling the waves lap at your feet as the soft golden sands caress your toes, we’ve got just the place for you.
Granted, pretty much every part of St. Lucia is perfect for the above, but Rodney Bay is one of the most popular destination amongst tourists for good reason. Brimming with beautiful, luxurious yachts and catamarans, as well as the Splash Island Water Park and Reduit Beach, which is renowned for its pristine layout and impressive length, we guarantee that you’ll have the best beach experience possible here.
Visitors that prefer quieter, more quaint seaside sceneries, or couples looking to find that honeymoon romance with more privacy and seclusion, don’t worry because St. Lucia has got you covered too.
Located just south of Castries, on the west coast of this fantastic island, is a beach unlike any of the others. Surrounded on three sides by lush, emerald-hued, forest-covered mountains and on the fourth by perfect warm azure ocean, Marigot Bay is a yacht-lover’s dream, and anyone else’s for that matter. This beach also sits just a few miles away from St. Lucia’s National Marine Reserve, making it an ideal diving spot.
A holiday in St. Lucia doesn’t only mean that you’ll be spending your days in lavish surroundings, with an impossible choice of diamond white-sand beaches and spectacular activities, it also means you’ll be in the land of chocolate.
Boucan by Hotel Chocolat is hidden deep in the volcanic mineral-rich forests of Soufriere and is home to a sumptuously rich cocoa plantation. See first-hand the ingenuity that goes into making some of the world’s finest chocolate, and even try your hand at creating your own unique blend. For the ultimate indulgent chocolate experience, this is second to none.
