Where to go in St Lucia

Experience the real St Lucia in Soufriere, where colonial French architecture can still be found. Expect stunning views of the Pitons and panoramic scenes from Mount Gimie. Visit the lively Saturday market, see colourful fishing boats in the harbour and enjoy bird-watching in the city's mountainous interior. Home to spectacular reefs, the scuba diving is excellent here too.

The island's capital city, Castries enjoys a privileged setting with dramatic views of the twin peaks (Pitons) majestically rising in the background. A perfect base for either exploring or unwinding, there's something for everyone here, with pristine beaches, historic landmarks and lush forests, as well as access to the drive-in volcano and botanical gardens.

The newest beach town in St Lucia, Gros Islet attracts thousands of travellers to its secluded coves. Some of the island's most famous and beautiful beaches are here, with Reduit Beach and Rodney Bay being lively hotspots where restaurants and trendy bars come to life when cruises dock here in December.

St Lucia's top excursions and attractions include a visit to the world's only drive-in volcano at La Soufriere; a tour, zip-line or bike ride through the rainforest; and a challenging climb up Gros Piton – or the opportunity to drink in the views from the base.
