Top 7 Unforgettable St. Lucia Excursions for the Ultimate Adventure

Imagine stepping into the paradise of St. Lucia, where your biggest challenge is choosing between rest and relaxation or diving into adventure.  With its stunning scenery calling you to explore, you might wonder, “Where do even I begin? How much beach time is just right?”  Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.  Here are our top seven adventures to make your St. Lucia visit truly unforgettable.

Soufriere Volcano and Mud Baths

Take a journey to the enchanting west coast of St. Lucia, where the town of Soufriere awaits.  Explore the wonders of Sulphur Springs Park, where you’ll dive into fascinating tales of history and geology, marveling at volcanic springs bubbling right before your eyes and steam vents whisking away into the sky.  Then, indulge in the luxurious black water pool and volcanic mud baths, soaking in the myriad of health benefits they offer.  Cap off your adventure with a dip in a cool, invigorating waterfall for the perfect finish.

Diamond Falls and Botanical Gardens

There is something entrancing about waterfalls, and Diamond Falls are no exception!  You can even swim and splash around in the pool at its base.  To get to the falls, you’ll take a leisurely stroll through the St. Lucian wildlife – almost as gorgeous as the falls themselves!

Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island

Fun Fact: Rodney Bay used to be smaller, and Pigeon Island is more of a peninsula.  It used to be an island, but St. Lucia built a causeway connecting the island to the mainland, causing Rodney Bay to nearly double in size.  Best of all, this is one of the most idyllic locations for resorts, so a day trip or excursion is quite feasible.  Here, you can find just about everything!  Not only are there great beaches, and incredible restaurants, but there’s an old historical fort on Pigeon Island to explore, as well as countless water activities like snorkeling, parasailing, or day charters.

Anse Cochon

St. Lucia is a wonderful destination for snorkeling. Since St. Lucia is an island, the snorkeling is spectacular in many places.  BUT Anse Cochon has arguably the best, most colorful reef in St. Lucia.

Chocolate Farm Tour

For those of us that love mixing a culinary experience into our adventures, St. Lucia is ready to deliver.  Tour a Chocolate Farm to experience the fascinating and unique process while surrounding yourself with the lushness of the farm.  Of course the best part of the tour is sampling the products.  You can even create your own chocolate bar!

Sugar Beach

You will find this picturesque beach, tucked away in a cove between Gros Piton and Petit Piton.  This beach has super soft sand in a great location with plenty to do and incredible sights.

The Pitons

Of course we saved the best for last!  For the ultimate St. Lucian adventure, head to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the place that St. Lucia is most known for: The Pitons.  This iconic duo consists of Gros Piton and its sister Petit Piton, which lies just to the north of Gros.  How do you tell the difference between them? Gros is taller and has a more gradual slope.  Petit, though not quite as tall, has nearly vertical slopes!  Both are open for hiking (or climbing) depending on your comfort level, or there are great paths nearby to get incredible views of The Pitons.
