You can hire a car to get around St Lucia, or there are minibuses which serve as the main means of transport around the island. All minibuses have a green number plate, and run various routes and times.
Before you set off, take a look at St Lucia Airport guide.
St Lucia’s dramatic coastline is one of the most photographed in the world, with the steep-sided Pitons sloping sharply down to the water, via a strip of golden sand. With a beach for every day of the year, jungle hikes and stunning coral reefs we go back to St Lucia time and time again.
Make your trip to St Lucia more comfortable and fly Economy Delight with Premium check in desks, priority boarding and a 34” seat pitch.
Head inland and discover the island’s rich rainforests, bursting with jaw-dropping views and spectacular wildlife. Explore on-foot with a guide, or (if you’re feeling brave) race through the tree canopy on zip lines.
Dramatic forest-covered hills surround the calm and tranquil harbour. It’s a perfect spot to relax, admire the ocean views, and enjoy a sunset drink, or two!
Hike the Pitons
Perhaps St Lucia’s most striking characteristic, the two iconic volcanic peaks rise 771m high. Climb to the top, and you’ll be rewarded with an unforgettable, once in a lifetime view.
Take the plunge
A natural wonder, the Sulphur Springs Park is in the crater of Soufriere volcano. Billed as the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano, you can take a dip in bubbling pools and therapeutic hot springs while admiring the tranquil surroundings.
Go whale watching
Hop on board a boat and head out to see if you can spot beautiful whales and dolphins off the coast of the island. This area of the Caribbean is a breeding area, so you might even be lucky enough to catch sight of a family.
