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.

The 3rd Annual Roots & Soul Festival

The 3rd Annual Roots & Soul Festival

August 05, 2019

Home to a unique confluence of African, East Indian, English, and French cultures, St. Lucia produces some of the most compelling and cutting-edge music in the Caribbean. From August 23 – 25, the 3rd annual Roots & Soul Festival will showcase several of our island’s finest musical performers, some well established, some just emerging, all of whom are pioneering new frontiers in Afro-punk, conscious hip-hop, R&B, and reggae. In addition to the concerts that will take place at various locations across the island, the festival will also feature master classes and other events that will include not only the musicians themselves, but also record label representatives, journalists, and other important players in the industry. Some events are free, while others charge for admission. The full Roots & Soul performance schedule can be viewed here.
