Caribbean conviviality and a watersports heaven
Take a Saint Lucia holiday with us and your senses will be filled with the sound of steel drums, the sight of miles of perfect sandy beaches and the taste of Creole cuisine—and all with a backdrop of towering green mountains covered in lush tropical forest.
Celebrate the Caribbean calypso-style on an island that joyfully blends its own culture with both French and English heritage. Most locals speak a French-based patois and attend Catholic churches, but they enjoy a game of cricket too. You don't have to wait until July's annual carnival to hear the sound of the steel drums as every week there are events to awaken your soul to the rhythms of Caribbean calypso. The Friday Night Street Party at Gros Islet has become the hot spot for St Lucia holidaymakers and locals alike, whilst the Dennery Fish Saturday is the venue for tasting the deliciously fresh seafood offerings.
However you like your holidays, Saint Lucia really delivers. Fans of watersports will love the wonderful diving, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing and sailing. Nature lovers won't want to miss a trip to the world's only 'drive-in' volcano, La Soufrière. The deep green twin peaks of The Pitons or The National Rainforest Reserve which has 19,000 acres of paradise are ideal for bird-watchers, hikers and nature lovers to explore. And at the end of it all? Just lie back and relax, cocktail in hand, on a beach watching the sun go down.
