St. Lucia is a beautiful island nation in the Eastern Caribbean, beloved for its stunning natural landscapes—highlighted by a pair of soaring mountains—and its unusual volcanic beaches. There are many exciting things to see and do in this tropical paradise.

Here are a few suggestions:

Choose Accommodations That Nourish And Recharge All Of You
While St. Lucia provides the incredible backdrop, your choice of accommodations will have a big impact on your overall experience here. You can’t go wrong by picking one of the Sunswept properties. Rendezvous caters especially to couples, and is the perfect place to enjoy a special romantic escape. BodyHoliday is a resort specifically designed to let you nurture and pamper your body—which in turn soothes and rejuvenates your mind and spirit.

Connect With Exotic Creatures
There are rare and exotic forms of wildlife (and colorful plant life) everywhere you turn in St. Lucia. Birdwatchers won’t want to miss the Millet Bird Sanctuary, while Maria Islands Nature Reserve serves as the home to five endemic reptile species, including the world’s rarest snake.

Explore The Beauty Of Mother Nature
One of the biggest draws that lure people to St. Lucia is the ability to immerse yourself in the beautiful environment. This is a captivating place for those with a great appreciation for all sorts of natural wonders. You can stroll through exotic plant life, venture into remote forests and gaze in awe at the power of cascading waterfalls.

Go Under The Sea
St. Lucia offers one of the most captivating underwater environments in the world. Diving enthusiasts come from all over the globe just to experience these clear sparkling waters. With lots of terrific diving locations all over the island, you will have plenty of starting points from which to explore reefs, shipwrecks and unique coral formations.

Cruise The Waves
Those who prefer to stay on top of the water also have plenty of choices. This is a popular area for sailing and cruising. The Atlantic Ocean is accessible on one coast, but you also have the option of going with the calmer waters of the Caribbean Sea on the other side of the island.

Soothe Your Body And Soul
There are a variety of options here that promote optimal health and wellness. One popular pick: soak in the rejuvenating waters at Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens and see if you feel the benefits of the mineral-rich waters originating from a volcano. The purifying mud found in this region is also said to have immense cleansing powers.

Eat Like A Local
You don’t want to pass up the opportunity to indulge in authentic tropical cuisine while in St. Lucia. This is the ideal place to enjoy traditional seafood dishes such as stewed saltfish, or try local favorites such as boiled green bananas. There are also casual fare selections available for times when you just want to grab a quick bite before heading off to another adventure on the island.
