St Lucia is a beautiful Caribbean island that is famous for its romantic atmosphere and is very popular with honeymooners. It has an air of exclusivity and seems to remain undiscovered and unspoilt. If you want a bit of excitement thrown in along with a bit of lying around the pool, then check out the must see sights of St. Lucia below…
The Pitons are incredible volcanic formations that you could only see on a Caribbean island. Take a day trip on a catamaran and approach them from the water for their full effect, or alternatively take the hike and really challenge yourself for this magnificent reward.
They are one of, if not the most, photographed spots on the island.
Tet Paul Nature Trail, Soufriere
Though it might be difficult to find, the Tet Paul Nature Trail is well worth the drive.
The guides are knowledgeable and passionate, making the trail fun and informative. An easy trail, you see a wide range of plants, trees, fruits and vegetables as well as excellent views of the Pitons.
Pigeon Island National Park
Lush and green, Pigeon Island is a beautiful island. Take a hike up to Fort Rodney and explore and immerse yourself in the history that it exudes.
With a small locally run bar and restaurant at the bottom of the hill, you’ll get to enjoy the cuisine too.
Immaculate Conception Church, Castries
A definite must see, the Immaculate Conception Church is a mixture of Italianate, Romanesque and Baroque architectural design. It has a clock tower and stained glass windows, making it a pretty sign to behold.
Inside, it is decorated by a local artist with bible scenes and saints. This is the Caribbean’s biggest church, and you’ll find all sorts underneath its roof.
If you can bear the sulphur smell and the climb upwards, a mud bath in the Sulphur Springs at Soufriere will leave your skin silky soft. Pools of steaming black water in the crater of a volcano really are a sight to behold, and one that should not be missed.
Local legend has it that the mud cures all ails and gives you the libido of a Brahma Bull.
So if you’re looking for somewhere to go on your holidays, St Lucia has lots to offer for young honeymooners, families and people travelling alone. So don’t miss out and make sure you see the most coveted sights in St Lucia.
