🌴☀️ Paradise Found: Discover the Hidden Treasures of Saint Lucia!🌴☀️ 

I hope you had a fun weekend. It’s quite cold here in North Carolina but by the end of the week it should be much warmer! This is great news for this warm weather girl.

Believe it or not, spring break is right around the corner. And based on early bookings, it’s going to be another big year for travelers to head south for some fun in the sun! I have the perfect destination for those looking for just that…St. Lucia!

Nestled in the southeastern part of the Caribbean Sea, St. Lucia represents a unique blend of friendly people, diverse culture, and breathtaking natural beauty. The island boasts one of the world’s only drive-in volcanic craters, splendid verdant mountains, pristine beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, lush rainforests, captivating waterfalls and a vibrant culture that will excite your senses. Get ready to escape to a world where beauty knows no bounds, and adventure awaits at every turn!

With so much to see and do on this beautiful island, it’s no wonder why people from all corners of the world flock here every year. Last May, Allan and I spent a week exploring the island, and I can personally attest to the magic that St. Lucia exudes in every aspect of island life.

Let me be your personal guide as I take you on a tour below through the wonders of this Caribbean Island paradise.

Unforgettable Accommodations

From premium all-inclusive resorts to private villas, St. Lucia has a variety of lodging options to fit any budget and preference. The island provides endless opportunities for relaxation and excitement, including many wonderful accommodations that are ideal for families, couples, and groups of friends.

At the five-star Sandals Grande St. Lucian, you can indulge in the exquisite luxury and enjoy all the comforts of the resort while surrounded by the breath-taking beauty of this tropical paradise.

Other options like Ladera Resort and Anse Chastanet are both award-winning accommodations that offer seamless service and irresistible Caribbean charm.

I stayed at two different five-star resorts – Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort and Zoetry Marigot Bay and both were fabulous in their own way!

Sugar Beach Resort: Where Dreams Become Reality

Prepare to be enchanted as you are whisked away to the luxurious Sugar Beach Resort, a slice of heaven nestled between the majestic Pitons.

Sugar Beach Resort is located in the southern town of Soufrière, nestled between the green peaks of Petit Piton and Gros Piton. The resort has 96 beautifully appointed guest rooms, cottages, villas, and beachfront bungalows. Every accommodation type features a private plunge pool or private pool along with modern amenities like air-conditioning, satellite TV, and Wi-Fi.

The Rainforest Spa

Don’t miss the chance to rejuvenate your body and soul at the resort’s world-class Rainforest Spa, where relaxation and serenity await. They offer a variety of tantalizing treatments and I had the chance to experience their Healing Coconut Milk massage. It was so relaxing and a perfect way to end our day!

Delectable Dining

Sugar Beach Resort boasts a unique dining experience at the restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Every Wednesday they have a Latin Fiesta night where both authentic Mexican and Latin food is served. The menu highlights include classic dishes from Quesadillas to Fajitas as well as cooking on their open fire grill with wood and charcoal as the Argentinians do. The food is locally sourced and quite delicious.

Zoetry Marigot Bay: Your Sanctuary of Serenity

Prepare to be enchanted by the Zoetry Marigot Bay Resort, where tranquility and luxury intertwine in perfect harmony. The resort is located on the beautiful harbor of Marigot Bay and offers elegant suite-style rooms. This luxury boutique resort features elegant colonial Caribbean style decor, air conditioning, ceiling fans, full kitchens, flat-screen TVs, and surround systems making it a dream location for a romantic honeymoon or a relaxing vacation. It’s a quiet oasis where every detail has been meticulously curated for your ultimate comfort.

The Zoetry Experience

The resort offers many unforgettable experiences. There’s nothing better than a sunset cruise along the shimmering waters of Marigot Bay, sipping on delectable cocktails as the golden sun bids the day farewell.

There are so many hiking trails around the area that we picked one and headed to the top so we could have a better view of Marigot Bay. It was a fun morning workout.

Or if you want to immerse yourself in the vibrant local culture, head to the vibrant Castries Market, where you’ll be tantalized by the sights, sounds, and flavors of Saint Lucia.

Unlock the Natural Wonders of Saint Lucia

Beyond the mesmerizing resorts, Saint Lucia holds a treasure trove of natural wonders waiting to be discovered. St. Lucia’s rich natural environment is what makes it unique. It’s the perfect gateway to encounter natural biodiversity and habitats.

There are so many activities on and around the island that you will leave breathless and craving more! Embark on a hike through the lush rainforests to witness the breathtaking beauty of the majestic Pitons up close. Or head out on one of the trails until you end up at Superman Falls. No visit to Saint Lucia is complete without a dip in the world-famous Diamond Falls. All three of these were fun adventures!

If you love snorkeling or scuba diving, then suit up and jump in the water to see the kaleidoscopic world beneath the waves. It’s truly magical!

And for those that want to soar high above the treetops, head to the rainforest for an exhilarating thrill across the zip lines.

One of our favorites was Sulphur Springs Park, home to the dormant Soufriere volcano as well as black-water pool baths whose volcano-heated, mineral-rich water is said to help reduce stress as well as heal skin ailments. Be prepared to get dirty but after rinsing off your skin will feel very soft!

Culinary Delights

St. Lucia is home to some of the world’s most delectable and flavorful dishes. The island features a vast array of restaurants, bistros, and cafes, each offering its unique style of Caribbean cuisine. Whether you’re seeking a romantic candlelit dinner overlooking the sea, a casual meal with friends or family, or a locally inspired dish from a street vendor, St. Lucia has it all.


The sunset in St. Lucia’s Rodney Bay is the perfect backdrop for a relaxed evening filled with refreshments, great music, and unforgettable ambience. Whether you’re in the mood for live music, a beachfront party, or a quiet night out on the town, this Caribbean Island has everything to fulfill your nighttime desires.
