St Lucia is one of the most typical yet distinctive islands of the Caribbean. Lush and mountainous, its beauty is legendary, with the sacred and majestic twin pitons towering half a mile straight out of the sea. The dramatic landscape and crystal clear waters make St Lucia’s beaches all the more breathtaking. With plenty of lovely relaxed bars on offer too, and the consistently beautiful weather, it’s no wonder locals spend much of their time ‘liming’. Scott Dunn’s highlights for St Lucia:
- For a taste of adventure, be sure to explore the 600 acres of Jungle in St Lucia, with the twin peak mountains-The Pitons- as a dramatic backdrop.
- Indulge in one of Hotel Chocolat’s stunning desserts at Boucan Restaurant located in their famous plantation.
- Scuba Diving in St Lucia’s Caribbean waters is great; the Anse Chastanet resort has a great PADI dive centre where family scuba courses are available.
- Be sure to taste typical Caribbean dishes and the delicious local delicacies of St Lucia.
