The landscape of the island offers diversity from the north to the south with the north offering more beaches and harbours while the south is dominated by the magnificent Pitons with tropical rainforests clustering around their foothills.

    We’re so excited to visit St. Lucia! We have about a week to explore the island in April, then we are chartering a few catamarans with friends and sailing from St. Lucia to St. Vincent & The Grenadines, then spending a week in Grenada!

    St. Lucia looks like a dream with clear, warm waters, lovely resorts, restaurants with great reviews (and Views!), hiking, SCUBA, snorkeling and sailing!

  2. I just returned from St Lucia. Hotel Chocolat was fabulous. Agnes at the spa gave me a delightful exfoliation massage with chocolate nibs then wrapped me in chocolate, banana leaf and plastic. I felt like a chocolate bar :-) The facial was great.

    I tried on a sailboat for the day with mystic man tours. It was relaxing and chill. Would repeat all.

    Just returned. Amazing place. Zip-lining through the rain-forest canopy was the Most. Fun. Ever! At Treetop Adventure Park, the young guides make the experience so much fun. Their enthusiasm and willingness to get you past the initial fear is such a plus! Don’t miss a great opportunity!
