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.

Celebrate the End of Summer at the St. Lucia Arts & Heritage Festival

Celebrate the End of Summer at the St. Lucia Arts & Heritage Festival

October 07, 2019

Among the many beautiful and lively Caribbean islands, St. Lucia stands out for its exceptional love of island-wide festivals, from St. Lucia Jazz to Carnival, to Roots & Soul. Now, throughout October, St. Lucia marks the end of summer with the vibrant Arts & Heritage Festival, a month-long celebration that originated almost three decades ago as Creole Day. The Arts & Heritage Festival pays homage to the brilliant diversity of our island’s unique artistic, ethnic, and cultural heritage, a dazzling combination of French, English, and African traditions. Special events include theatrical productions, live musical performances, dance, art exhibitions, authentic island food and drink, street parties, lectures, seminars, panel discussions, and more. The festival’s grand finale, International Creole Day (a.k.a., Jounen Kweyol) is celebrated in communities all across St. Lucia on Sunday, October 27.
