St. Lucia: where the West Indies come to life

Travellers can certainly find a typical Caribbean vacation in St. Lucia—the water sports, beaches and resorts here are exceptional. But this island has so much to offer beyond the standard, it’s a shame to catch a flight in and out without having experienced it all.


Tourists get a bird’s eye view of St. Lucia’s magnificent jungle canopy on the Rainforest Adventures Aerial Tram, an eight-seater gondola that soars over giant ficus stranglers, towering gommiers and a river gushing through the ravine. Those looking for a bigger adrenalin rush can zip line down the mountainside instead.

Adventure lovers mountain bike through the jungle on almost 20 kilometres of private trails on the grounds of Anse Mamin, one of the island’s first colonial plantations. Visitors can find tours suitable for all fitness levels.


One of the island’s iconic landmarks, The Pitons are two towers of volcanic rock covered in vegetation that jut from the sea in front of Soufrière. They are lovely to behold from the shore, and even lovelier to climb.


The only way to get to the Rainforest Hideaway is by boat, but the delicious local dishes with a contemporary twist are worth the short ferry ride across Marigot Bay. Guests dine on a wooden deck that extends right out over the water.

Frigate birds swoop over the ocean as far as the eye can see at The Cliff at Cap, an open-air restaurant perched at a sensational height. Hailed by the New York Times for its creative French/West Indian cuisine, it is not to be missed.
