Here we have compiled a list of the Top 5 attractions in St. Lucia so you can enjoy your vacation without worrying about anything.


You can do many incredible things in Saint Lucia, but none stand out as much as enjoying the view of the Pitons and the view from the Pitons. The Pitons are volcanic plugs, and both are located on the southwestern coast of Saint Lucia. You can explore pitons in many ways to get the best out of this place. You can hike up Gros piton or visit surrounding areas during a day tour where you can catch a glimpse of this natural landmark. You can also go on a helicopter tour to see the twin peaks from above.


Rodney bay is a popular tourist attraction in St. Lucia. It is majorly known for Island’s two largest shopping malls and the treasure bay casino. On Reduit Beach Ave, a strip of nightclubs and restaurants is a popular part of the island for tourists and natives. The Union Nature Trail and Zoo display St. Lucia’s national bird along with a trail through the rainforest.


Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens is located less than one mile east of the island’s former capital, Soufriere. This beautiful waterfall also boasts one of the island’s most colorful and vibrant waterfalls and relaxing mineral baths. Amazingly, the rock face around the waterfall, which is made of a combination of Sulfur Springs’ volcanism and rainwater, changes colors constantly due to the mineral content of the water. It is truly a sight to behold. It is worth every penny and every minute of your time.



Who doesn’t love a party? One thing you absolutely must do is go to the Gros Islet Street Party. The street party is also known as “Friday night Gros Islet jump up.” And, it is significant enough that a few blocks in Gros Islet have to be blocked off. It happens every Friday. A few things that should be on top of your list during this party are the place’s authentic local food and St. Lucian food. The locals catch local delicacies and cook them according to their recipes. There is no better way to experience real Lucian food. The next best thing is Rum and cocktails; you will have the opportunity to sample a wide variety of local tipples, from beers and rums to exotic rum punches. Last but not least, dance to Caribbean music. Dancing around in the warm evening, drinking in hand, after a good St. Lucian meal, is one of the most beautiful feelings you’ll experience in St. Lucia’s nightlife.


A visit to Pigeon Island is one of the best things to do in Saint Lucia for visitors and locals alike. The island is only around 30 minutes from the capital of Castries. Here you can go for a hike or a swim, or you could just relax on shore and listen to nature’s music. You could also attend the Jazz festival, but for that, you’ll have to plan your trip accordingly since it takes place every July. It is a summer event. 

These were a few major attractions in St. Lucia. From Piton to pigeon island, every place is worth the visit. You will have so many activities to do, and you could make endless memories with your loved one here.
