What to do in St Lucia
Beaches: For calm waters, beaches facing the Caribbean Sea on the north, south and west coasts have the safest conditions for gentle swimming, while the waves of the Atlantic eastern coast are popular with surfers.
Watersports: St Lucia's beautiful marine life makes it an excellent spot for scuba diving and snorkelling. The waves on the east coast are good for surfing, windsurfing, sailing, parasailing and water-skiing. Anglers can enjoy some of the best deep sea fishing in the world.
Adventure and Nature: Hike through lush rainforests or take a canopy zip line tour. Visit the Botanical Gardens or drive through La Soufriere volcano. Admire the cascading water at Diamond Falls, have a warm bath at the natural Sulphur Springs in Soufriere, or visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pigeon Island National Park.
Culture: Experience small villages and plantation estates or join a street party and soak up local island culture. Visit the capital city of Castries and enter the stunning cathedral of Immaculate Conception - one of the largest churches in the West Indies. See the French architecture in Soufriere and shop at colourful Saturday markets.
Nightlife: St Lucia's hotels have their own bars and discos, with steel bands and calypso music performances taking place most nights. Outside the hotels, our favourite bars include Shamrocks Pub in Rodney Bay, and the Green Parrot in Castries. To party with the locals, join a Friday night 'jump up' (weekly street party). We think Gros Islet and Anse La Saye have two of the best.
