Castries, the capital of St Lucia

Food and Drink

We believe that one of the most important things of any holiday is the food, but you'll be pleased to know that St Lucia certainly doesn't disappoint. On the menu, you'll find zingy rum cocktails and sumptuous curries, all enjoyed under the heat of the Caribbean sun. If you're a meat eater, you'll want to try the curried lamb and mouthwatering fish rotis! For vegetarians, try callaloo soup: it's made with callaloo (a green leafy vegetable grown on the island), okra, potatoes and garlic. Just be sure to choose one that's made without added seafood or meat.

The national dish of the island is green figs and salt cod - salted cod and green bananas cooked to perfection with plenty of vegetables and spices. It's best enjoyed washed down with a chilled Piton beer - a combination you won't want to miss!

Things to do

If lounging on the beach all day isn't for you, don't fret! From water-sports and hiking to plantation tours and helicopter trips, there's plenty to tickle your fancy in St Lucia.

Take the lush green jungle for example: it may look good in your photo backdrops, but it's also waiting to be explored. Thrill-seekers can get their adrenaline pumping by booking a zip-lining experience through the jungle. If you'd prefer a calmer option, explore the canopy walks and gawk at the indigenous flora and fauna.

Chocolate addict? You've come to the right place. Hotel Chocolat sources its chocolate from St Lucia so it's no surprise that it's got a good rep in the cocoa trade. Visit the Rabot Estate and book a Tree-to-Bar tour to see how the plantation creates the treats we know and love.

If you want to live life like a local, take yourself over to Castries (the capital of St Lucia) and wander around the local markets. You'll see a vibrant array of fresh produce, including plantain and coconuts, but you can also browse the craft market to pick up some charming souvenirs.

Why it's perfect for families

  • Good for babies: There are plenty of baby-friendly beaches offering calm, shallow waters and shade to cool off from the sun.
  • Good for kids: If they're getting bored of lounging on the beach, take them to the waterpark and see their smiles reach from ear to ear.
  • Good for teens: Water-sports are an instant win with teens! From surfing and sailing to snorkelling and parasailing, there won't be a grumpy face in sight.

Top tips

  • Pack for all weathers: Although the Caribbean sunshine may be the only thing on your mind, don't forget St Lucia has a tropical climate. That means rain can come at any time, so you won't want to be caught without a trusty raincoat!
  • Consider off-season: The dry period may be top of your list, but travelling in off-season could be a game changer. From June to October, you'll enjoy a more authentic experience without so many tourists. 
  • Bug spray: It's a good idea to pack some bug spray to avoid any unwanted holiday guests!

What Oliver loves

Warm weather, dazzling beaches, exciting activities and delectable food make St Lucia the ultimate all-rounder. You really can't go wrong!


Welcome to beach heaven. If you're hoping for days spent lounging on paper-white sands, gentle waves lapping at your feet while you sit back with a good book, St Lucia is the place to be. Tranquil bays take you away from the crowds, while any adventurers in the group can indulge in water-sports on the busier stretches.

Oliver’s Hidden Gem

For a rugged feel, head to the stunning Donkey Beach. It's not a sunbather's choice as the waves are pretty choppy, but it's perfect for walking routes and photo opportunities.

If turtle-spotting is on the agenda (and let's face it, it's got to be!), head to Grand Anse Beach which is tucked away on the north-east side of the island. Nesting season spans from March to August, so if you're lucky you'll catch a glimpse of these endangered creatures approaching the shore to lay their eggs. It's truly a once in a lifetime experience. 

Snorkelling is a huge part of St Lucia holidays and there's no place to do it like Anse Chastanet Beach. Here you'll have the opportunity to spot some incredible marine life, including puffer fish, parrot fish, eels and turtles. If you're keen to go the extra mile, book a scuba course with Scuba St Lucia and experience the deep blue on a totally different level!

If you're travelling with little ones, this is a great option for calm waters and beachfront restaurants. The mile-long stretch is one of the most popular on the island so get there early to bag the best patch. It's also home to St Lucia's open waterpark, Splash Island!

Getting there and around


The key airlines that fly direct from the UK to Hewanorra International Airport are British Airways, TUI and Virgin Atlantic. The flight time is around 8.5 hours.

By taxi and water taxi

Taxis are widely available but it's best to check the price before you travel. The roads are notoriously hairy on the island so you may want to consider a water taxi for a smoother ride!

By car

Rental cars can be booked at the airport and can make your holiday a bit easier to navigate. Good news - they drive on the left!

By bus

If you don't fancy driving on the rocky roads, a minibus is a great alternative. They come regularly and are the locals' main means of transport.

Top tips

  • Be sure to avoid packing camouflage clothing. It's illegal for anyone (including children) to wear camouflage in St Lucia!
  • Those with sensitive stomachs should prepare for various twists and turns when travelling the roads.
  • Minibuses have a green number plate with an M prefix, making them easy to spot.
