Book your next holiday to one of the Caribbean’s most romantic islands, with SN Travel’s holidays to Saint Lucia.
Nestled in the Eastern Caribbean, just northwest of Barbados, Saint Lucia is a magical destination of soaring volcanic peaks, sweeping rainforests and picture perfect sandy beaches. Jutting up from the shimmering blue waters of Saint Lucia’s south-western coast are The Pitons, two dramatic volcanic peaks that are simply stunning and form the most prominent landmark on the island. Head inland and you’ll discover lush rainforests of emerald green and hidden multi-coloured waterfalls as well as the world’s only drive-in volcano. The more adventurous traveller will love the exhilarating zip lines across the rainforest.
When it comes to holidays in Saint Lucia, it really is a tale of two islands. The north of Saint Lucia boasts a much more modern feel with the vibrant town of Rodney Bay heading up the holiday vibe with its swanky marina, beautiful Reduit Beach and array of restaurants and bars. Head down south and the authentic Caribbean vibe becomes more apparent in charming coastal towns such as Soufriere with its candy coloured architecture, roadside street vendors and fish fry ups on the beach.
Holidays to Saint Lucia are filled with opportunity, whether you simply wish to relax and chill out on one of its magnificent sun soaked beaches or sample some of the local activities and attractions on offer. Visit the charming city of Castries, capital of Saint Lucia and gran some souvenirs to take home from the lovely Castries market. The Cathedral is beautiful and the views from Morne Fortune are simply breath-taking. Visit the Saint Lucia Distillery and discover how rum is made, followed by a taster tour to liven things up. For those who have the energy, the walk up The Pitons is incredible whilst treks through the rainforest feature stunning water falls as well as the chance to capture a glimpse of some of Saint Lucia’s superb wildlife.
Saint Lucia plays host to a full calendar of events each year including the famous Saint Lucia Jazz Festival, held every May and the fabulous Saint Lucia Carnival, which takes place in July and promises a spectacle of colour, music and dance.
