Things to Do in St. Lucia
The Pitons are land formations made out of volcanic materials. They stand magnificently from the sea and are covered in emerald-colored vegetation. Pitons happen to be the most iconic sight throughout St Lucia. If you want to catch the best view of the Pitons, visit the colorful fishing village of Soufriere and feast your eyes on a panoramic view of the twin peaks.
While hiking through these fraternal twin peaks in the Caribbean, take time to enjoy and gush about the spectacular view at the top and beautiful hiking trails. Gros Piton is the better option for hiking, as Petiti Piton is a challenging trail meant for professionals.
Anse Chastanet coral reef is home to a treasure trove of sea life and a protected beach with a stunning view of the Pitons. Divers can see soft corals, brain corals, colored sponges, and boulder coral on a plateau that is two to eight meters down.
Frogfish inhabits a large cavern close by, and you may spot numerous varieties of fish in the coral gardens, including goatfish, wrasse, parrotfish, barracudas, and Chromis while diving. There is a wall dropping at 46 meters at the edge of the plateau to a lace coral ecosystem populated by crabs, lobsters, and eels. Anse Mamin, which is 10 minutes away, is less crowded and has a lovely quiet feel great for snorkeling.
The Castries Market is the capital city's local food and flea market. It is open daily except for Sunday, with Saturday being the most active day. The locals gather here to sell homegrown spices and produce and St. Lucia-stamped souvenirs.
The colorful Castries market, located on the easternmost point of Castries harbor, is the best place to experience a part of the local life in the Caribbean Island of St. Lucia.
Buy things like woodcarvings, batiks, gift baskets of spices, oils, and banana ketchup, hand-made hot-pepper sauces, brooms, and other souvenirs. While the market is open daily except for Sunday, you should visit during the busy Fridays and Saturdays when the market is fun and lively.
Marigot Bay is debatably the most attractive bay on St. Lucia. Because of its deep and sheltered harbor, it is believed that the British fleet hid here from their French enemies by covering their masts with palm fronds. The luxurious hillsides plummet to the pretty palm-fringed beach and yachts on the bay's blue waters. There are water shuttles as well to ferry travelers across the bay to the resorts in Saint Lucia.
Sitting on a spectacular peninsula allows for exquisite overwater bungalows on the Caribbean Sea!
Located in Choc Bay on the beautiful island of St. Lucia, you will find this newly renovated resort - it is a true Garden of Eden!
