What to see in St Lucia

St Lucia Attractions


St Lucia is a wonderful destination for tourists with a tropical and sun-soaked holiday in mind. Its many beaches, emerald waters and incredible resorts draw in hordes of visitors every year, and understandably so.

Most guests arrive on cruise liners at the island's main port, Castries, and generally do little more than shop for souvenirs at the likes of the Castries Central Market and enjoy the beach; however, holidaymakers looking for something more won't be disappointed. Those who have time to explore are enchanted by the jungle walks and biking trails, as well as natural attractions like the fascinating Soufriere Volcano with its bubbling sulphur springs.

Visitors also enjoy the botanical gardens and the UNESCO-listed twin peaks which are known as 'The Pitons'. The Pigeon Island National Park is also popular among tourists for its white sandy beaches, as is seeing the best panoramic views of the island from the old town of Vieux Fort.

Those with a taste for sun and relaxation will not be disappointed in St Lucia, but neither will those looking for a more diverse tourist offering.
