Saint Lucia

Blessed By Nature

Sparkling like a Jewel

 

Sparkling like a jewel in the eastern Caribbean Sea, the island nation of Saint Lucia welcomes visitors with breathtaking scenery, crystal clear blue sea and picture perfect sandy beaches.

The Pitons, Saint Lucia’s iconic twin peaks, tower over the resort of Soufriere in the South, while Castries, the capital of the island, bustles with a vibrant market selling local crafts and tropical produce. Saint Lucia has it all, and it’s no wonder the island is fast becoming a favourite holiday destination for those in search of a little bit more.

Highlights

A helicopter flight over the majestic Pitons is sure to take your breath away, with views of the island’s dramatic coastline thrown in. Alternatively, a drive into the volcano at Sulphur Springs will set your pulse racing, followed by a dip in the thermal pools to invigorate your body and senses with their mineral-rich waters. You can also take a trip to Pigeon Island, the place of the first French settler almost 500 years ago. It was originally a pirate base, then a garrison for French troops, and is now a national park protecting the remains of the garrison buildings.

For nature lovers, the Mamiku botanical gardens offer hundreds of species of flora, along with birdwatching tours and miles of hiking trails.

Thrill-seekers and sun-worshippers

Those feeling adventurous may want to take advantage of the wonderful breeze at Sandy Beach, perfect for the popular Saint Lucian activity of kitesurfing. A local guide will help you reach the top of either Petit Piton or Gros Piton – an energetic hike that is not for the faint-hearted, but well worth it for the stunning view from the top. A zip-wire flight through the dense island rainforest will certainly get the heart thumping, especially if you take the tour at night, flying through the canopy under starlit skies.

For a slower pace, and to soak up all the gorgeous Caribbean sun, there are plenty of idyllic beaches to choose from, lined with gently lapping blue sea and white sand. Snorkelling or scuba-diving come highly recommended to fully appreciate the beautiful underwater world and stunningly coloured tropical fish.

A vibrant nightlife

Blues, jazz, calypso and R&B feature prominently in Saint Lucian music culture. The islanders love to party and the annual Jazz Festival is a major part of the music calendar, as is the Carnival held in June each year. The experience of music, dancing, eating and drinking in the street is a must for carnival goers, along with some colourful and eye-catching costumes.

If you’re seeking a more relaxed and intimate dining experience, our resorts in Saint Lucia cater for every taste, from gourmet offerings, to traditional spicy Creole dishes such as fish stews and callaloo soup. Enjoy a fine dining experience at one of the many hillside restaurants with clear views across the city of Castries, or in the heart of the rainforest, where restaurants specialise in new and innovative dishes made using local produce like lionfish.

For a truly extraordinary experience, Azure’s luxury hotels in Saint Lucia offer a wide choice of accommodation to fit every expectation, with lavish and stylish suites, villas and apartments to give you holiday memories you will treasure forever.
