St Lucia, a paradise island that boasts the true essence of romance as well as adventure, with crystal clear white beaches and sparkling waters, dramatic landscapes, an unspoilt rainforest and even a drive-in volcano, there isn’t any reason why anyone shouldn’t visit this magnificent destination!
You will be amazed by the striking natural landscapes, which provide the perfect backdrop to your dream Caribbean holiday. Fringed by largely unspoilt beaches, St Lucia, often referred to as one of the world’s most romantic destinations, is scattered with sprawling banana, cocoa, coconut and mango plantations which are nestled in thousands of acres of pristine rainforest. The island has long been a popular destination for both weddings and honeymoons with a number of romantic hideaways dotting its golden shores.
The vibrant capital city of Castries, which was founded by the French and later used by the British as a naval port, sits by a deep sheltered harbour on the island’s west coast. The city is best viewed from the summit of Morne Fortune, or the ‘Hill of Good Luck’, once a key battle ground and the site of a fort built by both the French and British. At the heart of the city and its culture is the bustling Castries Central Market where the stalls creak under the weight of the island’s exotic produce.
Diamond Mineral Baths- These sulphurous springs were discovered by the French and Louis XVI’s doctors said the water was beneﬁcial. Take a dip for a small fee.
Sulphur Springs- Visit the world’s only drive-in volcano. See the steaming crater from a lookout point before relaxing in hot, bubbling mudbaths.
The driest period is from December to March.The winter weather averages high temperatures of around 81°F (27°C). Summer is quiet and hot with the July temperatures averaging 85°F (29°C). Hurricane season falls between June and October – expect some more rain this time of year and maybe the odd storm.
