When you first lay eyes on St Lucia it’s easy to see why people fall in love with it.
Fringed by largely unspoilt beaches, St Lucia is mountainous and blanketed by pristine rainforest and of course the iconic Pitons. No wonder St Lucia is one of the world’s most romantic destinations. Luxury getaway hotels nestle into the hillsides, blending perfectly with this island’s natural beauty. There are also many hotels set on palm-fringed bays that dot the west coast between Castries and the island’s northern tip. The northern-most town of Gros Islet is a lively destination with a number of bars, restaurants and nightclubs if you are looking for a little more outside your accommodation. While it’s the perfect place for couples seeking secluded hideaways or families looking for beach fun, there’s more to St Lucia than first meets the eye. The best way to make the most of the island’s incredible landscapes is to get out and explore, from nature trails, zip line challenges and mountain biking to hot springs, sailing and diving. Whether you’re looking for a picture-perfect honeymoon or a gorgeous family holiday, we are here to help you with your St Lucia planning.
There’s never a bad time to visit the Caribbean. However, most people think that December to April is the best time to visit when it’s slightly cooler, drier and less humid. Enjoy the most pleasant of climates with temperatures at 24-29°C year round. May to November can be wetter, with hurricanes possible from July to October.
