St. Lucia: Amazing Scenery For The Time Of Your Life

Why go? Contrary to brochure belief, you don’t have to be a honeymooning couple holding hands on a beach to like St Lucia. This is one of the Caribbean’s lusher, hillier islands, peaking at 950m Mt Gimie – though it’s the two pointy Pitons that feature in more photos. A hike in the island’s rainforested interior will pass waterfalls, giant ferns and wild orchids, plus a bevy of birds. St Lucia also boasts the world’s only drive-in volcano (Qualibou), cacao estates (where you can go on tasty tours) and a colourful market (head to capital Castries on a Saturday morning). Don’t miss a trip to Pigeon Island, a national park dominated by an 18th-century fort, and a whale watching trip: sperm whales and various dolphins are common, and humpbacks and orcas swim by from time to time.

The scenery of St. Lucia is inviting tourists to live their dream vacation and enjoy it to the fullest.

When to go: The weather is best mid-December-April; these are also the busiest and priciest months. May-early June will be quieter and cheaper, if muggier. Hurricane season is June-November. The best time for humpbacks is January-April.

How to go: There are non-stop flights from the UK to St Lucia’s Hewanorra International Airport (8.5hrs).
