Spring Destination Highlight: St. Lucia


If you’re in need of a break this spring, but you’re feeling tired of the usual Cancun or Cabo getaway, then look no further than St. Lucia.  This breathtaking island is nestled in the heart of the Caribbean, this tropical paradise offers everything you need for the perfect vacation.


Spring is the perfect time to visit St. Lucia. With mild temperatures and low rainfall, you'll enjoy sunny days and cool evenings, ideal for exploring the island's lush landscapes and pristine beaches. Plus, the island sees a dip in tourism between winter and summer, so you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful destination without all the crowds. You may even get a better deal on your flight and hotel!


While St. Lucia is a relatively small island, there is so much to see and do. The most notable natural landmark is the Pitons, which are two mountainous volcanic plugs that make a remarkable visual statement. The two Pitons are named the Gros Piton, which stands at 798.25 m (2,618.9 ft) high, and the smaller Petit Piton, which stands at 743 m (2,438 ft) high. Although the Petit Piton is smaller, it is more challenging and strenuous to climb, making it a less popular choice for hikers. Gros Piton, on the other hand, is more frequently climbed and includes marked trails. For an entry fee, local guides will direct you up the marvelous site.


Aside from the Pitons, there are numerous other activities and excursions to partake in. Visit spots like Anse Chastanet and the Soufrière Marine Management Area to discover colorful coral reefs, tropical fish, and even the occasional sea turtle or ray. Take a trip to the world's only drive-in volcano and experience the therapeutic benefits of the Sulphur Springs mud baths. Hike to the top of Signal Peak for panoramic views of the island or visit Fort Rodney to learn about its colonial history. The possibilities are endless!


If you’re not much of an adventurer and simply want to lay on the warm sand at a beautiful beach, St. Lucia couldn’t be more perfect for that too. The island has several all-inclusive resorts; book your stay at any one of them and just relax and enjoy their all-inclusive drinks, food, and amenities. The island has multiple SANDALS Couples’ Only resorts, making it a great choice for a honeymoon, anniversary present, or romantic getaway.


All in all, St. Lucia should definitely be on your bucket list if it isn’t already! What are you waiting for? Give our office a call at (818) 543-1821 to book your trip to this gorgeous island.
