Discover Our Mountain Majesty

Talk show super-star Oprah Winfrey once said that St. Lucia's two majestic volcanic plugs, the fabled twin peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton, located south of Soufrière and situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are among the top ten things to have in your "bucket list." We couldn't agree more! Every time returning visitors see the Pitons, they often remark that it seems like they are seeing them for the first time, every sighting is mind-blowing. On a full-day excursion to the Pitons, you can hike all the way to the top, noticing everything from the orchids, the hummingbirds, the butterflies, the canopy of trees and one of the most spectacular views you will ever encounter.

It’s time again for the hottest festival with the coolest jazz in the Caribbean! Join us from May 4-12 for the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival. Featuring spectacular outdoor concerts with local, regional, and international jazz artists at various venues located throughout the island, this will be one epic celebration. Groove to the music as you sip icy cold drinks, or indulge yourself in a variety of delicious food from the top street vendors. Between performances, check out the art shows, join any of the ongoing parties around St. Lucia, or get into lounging mode and practice your limin’ (hanging out).   

The main events will be happening Thursday-Sunday at the Pigeon Island National Landmark, with additional concerts scattered around the island. The 2019 concert lineup includes such stellar performers as Augustin ‘Jab’ Duplessis, Catherine Russell, Christian McBride, Diane Reeves, Etienne Charles & Creole Soul, Ledisi, Nubya Garcia, and many more. Beginning this year, the 2019 Saint Lucia Jazz Festival will also offer professional development workshops, master classes, and collaborative performances with students from the Saint Lucia School of Music, and local jazz artists as part of its “Artists in Education” initiatives.
