Six reasons to visit Saint Lucia

BEAUTY: Saint Lucia

THERE ARE many reasons that make Saint Lucia so unforgettable. From its Creole heritage to its mouthwatering food and the wonder of nature experienced up close. Here are six of the best things to do in Saint Lucia - plus a chance to win a 7 night holiday on the island:

1. Ziplining

Nothing beats the exhilaration of zipping through the plantation estate of Morne Coubaril, taking a 30mph journey past Petit Piton and towards the endless Caribbean Sea with the scent of cocoa, coffee and tropical fruits assailing your senses.

2. An aerial tram

Head to Babonneau for a unique aerial gondola ride where you will be transported noiselessly through the rainforest, and see some of Saint Lucia’s most colourful residents like the Saint Lucia Parrot in its natural habitat.

3. The Sulphur Springs

Located in Saint Lucia’s botanical gardens in Soufrière, this mythical place is where you can dip your feet into the mineral rich waters of the Black Water Pool, bathe in the famous Pool of Love, or explore the waterfalls and boiling springs of the volcanic crater.

4. The festivals

Saint Lucia is synonymous with good food and music, and this is celebrated in its many festivals including the Food and Rum Festival in January 2018 and the Soleil Summer Festival from January to October.

5. Up close with nature

The beaches and waters of Saint Lucia are some of the best in the world, and the wildlife agrees with the majestic leatherback turtle returning to Grand Anse beach each year to lay eggs. To see some of the island’s marine life, take a boat tour to spot bottleneck dolphins, humpback whales and beautiful coral reefs.

6. The Pitons

The glorious Pitons are nothing short of awe inspiring, and no visit to Saint Lucia is complete without a hike to the top of Gros Piton, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As you ascend you will see ancient settlements, caves and some of the most stunning views out over Saint Lucia to Martinique and Saint Vincent.
