Sensational Saint Lucia scales new heights
Tuesday 24 September 2013
If you are looking for a holiday experience that is guaranteed to heighten your senses, the island of Saint Lucia is the place to visit.
The Caribbean paradise is home to the magical Piton Mountains, unspoilt rainforest, sun-soaked beaches, a world-class choice of accommodation, delicious dining and a rich cultural heritage.
There is an abundance of activities on the former British colony nicknamed "Helen of the West", with stunning scenery, unique accommodation and a rich cultural heritage that gives Saint Lucia an appeal far beyond its spectacular sandy beaches.
The sight of the magical twin peaked Piton Mountains - named by chat-show host Oprah Winfrey as one of the 'top five places to see before you leave this great place called earth' - taken in from a helicopter tour will amaze, and it won’t cost you the earth either!
The smells of cocoa on the Tree to Bar Experience on the Rabot Estate will leave any lover of chocolate wanting more as well as educating on how our favourite treat is made.
The touch and taste on offer on the Lushan Country Life tour where ginger, cocoa, cinnamon, golden apple, mango, graver, carambola and coconuts are just a few of over 134 plant species that surround you, and make this heritage experience a must do.
And the sounds of the annual Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival where local and international artists provide R&B, soul, reggae, pop and calypso all within the surroundings of the Pigeon Island National Park will provide the ultimate relaxation with a truly Caribbean vibe.
Saint Lucia also offers a twin-centre holiday experience with the south of the island offering more stunning outdoor views of the rainforests, beautiful botanical gardens, sparkling waterfalls and the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano in Soufriere. The North of the island offers more in entertainment with vibrant Rodney Bay Village having numerous bars, restaurants and shopping malls as well as a historic marina treasured by pirates in the 1700 and 1800's.
