Think tropical Twin Peaks. Think banana plantations (quite different from damn fine cherry pie, no?). St Lucia is a gorgeous island paradise offering spectacular views across the wide, wild Atlantic. Across more than 200 square miles, the island – mixing Catholicism, Rastafarianism, voodoo and sunshine – St Lucia surprises and reveals itself to be far more than ‘pretty beaches and warm water.’ The culture runs deep here, from sugar beach to sulphur springs.

Snorkelling in St Lucia

Anse La Raye

St Lucia’s sleepy fishing village.

Nature lovers will rejoice on setting foot in Anse La Raye. But before you even do that, the tone is set by the secluded curve of sea-accessed Anse Cochon where you’ll experience some of the island’s best snorkelling. Venturing further into the dense rainforest, volcanic peaks, steaming mud baths and hikes beneath the wings of endemic birdlife reveal themselves in a flurry of colour. In the company of expert naturalist guides, the magic of this lesser-visited corner of the island is brought to life.

Soufriere, St Lucia

Soufriere

Ringed with volcanic springs and cocoa plantations.

The beating heart of St Lucia’s culinary scene, every Saturday morning there is an atmosphere of anticipation to Soufriere. It culminates at the market. A gathering place for talented young chefs, seasoned fishermen and plantation farmers, here you’ll find everything you need for an authentic St Lucian experience – both in terms of culture and cuisine. The colours are vibrant, the sounds enrapturing and the experience indelible.

Castries, St Lucia

Castries

Bright markets in the capital city.

St Lucia’s capital and the gateway to its waters, Castries promises days soaked in sunshine. Whether exploring overland by 4×4 or overwater by private yacht, allow yourself to open your eyes onto the might of St Lucia’s scenery. Accompanied in each direction by expert guides, we’ll unlock one of our favourite corners of the island as we arrange private dining in a tropical garden that only a very few have keys to.
