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.

St. Lucia: There’s Always Something to Celebrate

St. Lucia: There’s Always Something to Celebrate

February 04, 2019

St. Lucia offers an abundance of attractions and events, along with a fabulous variety of festivals, holidays, and a myriad of other opportunities to make merry. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, there’s always something to celebrate. From the annual Carnival fetes in June and July to the St. Lucia Jazz Festival in May to the ARC races in November and December, St. Lucia offers a myriad of reasons to party. Additionally, there are world-class cricket and squash matches, tennis tournaments, and other sporting events.

This month, whether you’re planning a romantic staycation for Valentine’s Day, or just indulging yourself with a glorious winter tropical getaway, we invite you to celebrate our Independence Day with us on February 22. Marking the date in 1979 when the island gained its independence from Britain, this is a national holiday, and the entire week is celebrated with patriotic parades, kite-flying competitions, Calypso tents, and much more! Also, don’t forget about the Friday night “Jump Up” parties on Gros Islet, Anse La Raye, and all the island’s other outlets for dance, food, drink, music, and a gloriously good time.
