Take a cheap flight to St Lucia and discover a picture-perfect Caribbean paradise with a wild side
Located in the heart of the Caribbean, St Lucia is probably best known as a perfect honeymoon destination. With white sandy beaches, emerald seas and a dramatic mountain skyline, it certainly hits the spot if you’re after a tropical paradise. But you’d be mistaken for thinking this is all a holiday in St Lucia has to offer.
Explore the island’s wild nature while gliding above the rainforest on a canopy tour. Jump in and have a go at one of the wealth of water sports available, from snorkeling to deep-sea fishing. Or leave the beaches behind and dance the night away in the vibrant capital, Castries.
Visit the dramatic Sulphur Springs Park in the crater of Soufriere volcano. Billed as the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano, enjoy a dip in bubbling pools and therapeutic hot springs.
A wide variety of whales and dolphins can be admired off the coast of St Lucia. This area of the Caribbean is also a breeding area, so you might even catch sight of a family.
Venture inland and discover St Lucia’s rich rainforests, bursting with spectacular views and wildlife. Explore them with a guide on foot, or for thrill seekers, race through the canopy on zip lines!
Surrounded by dramatic forest-covered hills, the beautiful harbour of Marigot Bay is the perfect spot to relax, admire the turquoise Caribbean and enjoy a sunset drink or two.
Perhaps St Lucia’s most striking characteristic is the Pitons, two iconic volcanic peaks rising 771m. Climb to the top and be rewarded by a once in a lifetime view.
