St Lucia is an outstanding holiday destination which is perfect for a long, relaxing stay or for a Caribbean island hopping itinerary. The island appeals to adrenaline junkies, honeymooners, families and those looking to lay on a beach sipping rum punch. With a fantastic selection of accommodation options including exclusive resorts overlooking the Pitons, all-inclusive beach hotels and properties offering self-catering villas, St Lucia is perfect for a luxury holiday or a more affordable break.
St Lucia is renowned for its dramatic landscape of volcanic peaks, mountainous terrain and lush tropical scenery combined with the abundance of activities available for all ages. Guests in search of an adrenaline filled holiday can hike in the mountains, zipline through the rainforest, walk the Tet Paul nature trail or hire a jeep to explore.
St Lucia offers two diverse holiday experiences, making it an excellent choice for a twin centre holiday. The south of the island is dominated by the famous Piton mountains and the tropical rainforests, allowing visitors to hike and take day trips to explore the Sulphur Springs, while the coast offers wonderful snorkelling and diving. Meanwhile, the north of the island has a gentler landscape and more marinas, harbours and beaches as well as excellent windsurfing opportunities.
Members of the Tropic Breeze team travel to St Lucia multiple times in a year, visiting the hotels and exploring the island for ourselves. In the past few years Jo & Mark, The Tropic Breeze founders, have hiked through the Piton, while Julia embarked on an adventure filled week of segwaying, ziplining and walking the Tet Paul trail. Call our travel specialists on 01752 880880 to find out more about St Lucia and to receive personal recommendations.
St Lucia has two airports - an international airport in the south and a smaller airport in the north where inter-Caribbean flights depart from, making St Lucia a fantastic island to visit as part of a Caribbean island hopping holiday! Our personal recommendation is to combine the lively island of St Lucia, packed full of culture, dramatic landscape and adventure, with a quieter island such as one of The Grenadines.
