While all the islands in the Caribbean would make an incredible honeymoon destination, the idyllic landscapes of St. Lucia are the ultimate backdrop for a honeymoon you’ll never forget. From its sky-high mountains to its pristine waters and bustling local culture, there’s no shortage of activities to do while exploring all the island has to offer! Read on for our top picks to make the most of your St. Lucia honeymoon.
Explore the Pitons
Get your cameras and walking shoes ready for a hiking tour of the majestic Pitons, the jaw-dropping landmark of the island. Get up early and ascend 2,000 feet up the volcanic spires for iconic views of the island and surrounding sea. Be sure to plan your hike in advance, as tour guides are mandatory to climb the mountains. If the steep hike is too much, admire the Pitons from below from a catamaran boat tour, and even swim along the base of the mountain. Whichever way you chose to explore the Pitons, they surely won’t disappoint.
Pigeon Island National Park
Located only a short drive away from Harbor Club St. Lucia, Pigeon Island National Park makes for the perfect locale to spend a day hiking and relaxing beachside. Like the Pitons, climb to the very top of the peak within the national park for sweeping vistas of the Caribbean Sea, and on a clear day, neighboring island Martinique! After spending a few hours hiking, find a spot at the small beach within the park and soak up the sun, or if you’re in the mood for some more adventure, head over to one of the rental huts and go snorkeling. Best part? Admission is only $8 per person, valid for a whole day!
Gros Islet Street Party
After a long day spent hiking or working on your tan beachside, it’s time to unwind at the famous Gros Islet Street Party. What to expect? Think great music, delicious Caribbean food and partying locals. Grab some lobster on the barbeque streetside and dance the night away – there’s fun to be had for everyone, tourists and locals alike. The party takes place each Friday, so when planning your trip be sure not to miss this bucket list activity.
Champagne Sunset Cruise
You are celebrating your honeymoon after all, so what better way to end a blissful day than on a champagne sunset cruise off the coast of St. Lucia? Starting at $73 dollars per person, take in the stunning views of the island awash in golden sunset hues while enjoying a glass of bubbly and small bites. This 2-hour tour will leave you relaxed and with no shortage of beautiful photos to show family and friends.
Rumor has it the St. Lucian sulphur springs have healing powers, some even saying they’ll take 10 years off! Head over to the springs and step into one of the black water pool baths. Soak in the hot volcanic water, then emerge with smooth, baby-soft skin! For those not interested in entering the baths, be sure to take a guided tour of the area to learn about the history of the springs and the volcano they call home.
