With its combination of sandy beaches, dense rainforest, and luxurious resorts, Saint Lucia is an excellent location for a romantic vacation. Imagine evening strolls on the beach at sunset before drinks and calypso music, a day cruise in the Caribbean Sea, or a day at your resort spa.
Sulfur Springs is a popular destination for couples looking to relax and reconnect. The hot springs are the perfect location for an outdoor dip, conversation, and perhaps a spring-side picnic of local fruits and vegetables.
Saint Lucian cuisine is a delight to explore together. There are several elegant restaurants in the larger areas such as Soufriere and at the resorts. Seafood and goat are local specialties that you can sample in various forms for a main dish. The tropical climate produces a variety of exotic fruits that you can challenge each other to sample including breadfruit, which tastes like fresh bread after the fruit is cooked.Nature
Saint Lucia is a paradise of hikers with trails winding through the rainforest where you might spot some of the native birds, reptiles, and mammals. While you can hike independently, a guided hike will allow you to become better acquainted with the local flora and fauna including wild nutmeg, blue mahaut trees, Mangrove Cuckoo, and maybe even a Boa Constrictor.
The twin Pitons, Gros Piton and Petit Piton, stretch high into the sky in large cone shapes. Guides are required for the half-day hike of Gros Piton. The summit of this volcanic remnant is 2600 feet above sea level and offers long-range views of the island and sea. Most travelers in good health are able to complete the hike, which covers both moderate and strenuous terrain.
Saint Lucia is also home to a drive through volcano. Here you can pass through the remnants of a volcanic dome to see what Earth looked like 400,000 years ago. The green, blue, and red hues of the rock indicate the presence of various minerals and create beautiful patterns, while the smell of rotten eggs is a reminder of the sulfur here, too.Search for Deals
