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 BookYard: Gathering Place of the St. Lucian Literati

The BookYard: Gathering Place of the St. Lucian Literati

September 02, 2019

Just a short 10-minute stroll from The Landings Resort & Spa, St. Lucia’s one and only book shop, The BookYard, is the perfect spot to pick-up the beachside reading you need to make your St. Lucian vacation complete. Distraught that so many of the island’s bookstores had closed their doors, publisher and voracious reader Mae Wayne opened the BookYard to give lovers of literature a place to come together, share ideas, and indulge in the rich literary traditions of St. Lucia, the Caribbean islands more generally, and the world. With its extensive selections of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and children’s literature, there’s something for everyone here. The BookYard especially prides itself on the many St. Lucian authors that line its shelves, including George Alphonse, John Robert Lee, Rick Wayne, and Derek Walcott, winner of the 1992 Nobel Prize for Literature.
