Saint Lucia holidays
St Lucia – sublime sun, golden sands and stunning sea. For folk who love the tropics, it’s the perfect place for a honeymoon, or a relaxed but fun-packed holiday.
Why not test yourself, if you are a golf lover, in the incredible championship golf attraction, or a spot of snorkelling and SCUBA diving in the breathtaking reefs? Deep-sea fishing, water skiing, and parasailing are all available for the adventurous!
If you are feeling romantic you can catch a sunset cruise and watch the deep red and orange colours stretch across the sky, or catch the sights on horseback across the beach.
Perhaps you could hire a jeep and explore anywhere you like, as most of the hotels are on the northwest coast, so it’s definitely worth having a mini adventure and see the spectacular sights of St Lucia.
From mid-March to September, for the nature lovers, there are leatherback turtles to be found before they nest, and the Pitons – two beautiful volcanic peaks – are well worth checking out as they dominate the landscape for miles around. The drive-in volcano and elegant botanical gardens might also tickle your fancy.
Whatever happens, the pace is laid back and at night you can take a trip to Rodney Bay, with plenty of delicious food in the excellent restaurants and some great live music at the bars. There is plenty to see, at this exceptional resort, and you can even try a triple-centre holiday across different islands or even visit a theme park if you are feeling energetic!
What To Do
Sunset cruises around the mountain scenery of Saint Lucia are the things dreams are made of on Virgin Holidays breaks. Get there in May for the Jazz Festival, June for golf galore and September for a fishing bonanza. All year round, the tropical jungle, Diamond Mineral Baths and Botanical Gardens are worth a snoop around too.
Where To Eat
Fresh local food is a great excuse worth taking a Virgin trip to Saint Lucia for. Try local favourites like pepper-pot stew, stuffed crab back and curried goat too – why not be adventurous? Salt fish and green fig stew is worth a go too at the likes of Coal Pot and Bam's Place and the aptly-named Barefoot By The Sea.
