May 4- May 11, 2019
My husband and I came to St. Lucia for our honeymoon and Sargas villa was the perfect place for us to stay. We rented a car at the airport and have spent the week touring the island.
On Sunday we explored some places in the south. We took the car up to Moule a chique which provides a beautiful view of the southern tip of the island. In the afternoon we went to Rudy John Park. This is a small but very pretty beach that wasn’t too crowded (entry is completely free). That night we ate at Hummingbird and has one enjoyable (a lil pricey) experience, its easily walkable and they accept credit cards.
Monday we drove up to Castries. We took a snorkeling/sunset cruise with carnival sailing ltd. We had a wonderful time snorkeling at the base of the Pitons and the boat wasn’t too crowded. I highly recommend seeing the Pitons from the boat- it really gives you a different perspective on them.
Tuesday- we went to the botanical gardens in the morning. This place is absolutely gorgeous and I think it should be on everyone’s to do list. After the gardens we walked over to Marie’s lunch cuisine for lunch, her buffet is a nice selection of the local food and you must get the fresh mango juice. Afterwards we headed to Sulphur Springs. Lunch time /right after lunch seem to be the best time to go. Right before we left lots of tour groups arrived.
Wednesday we hiked the Gros Piton. We got to the trail head at 7:30am and we were the second group up the pitons. The earlier in the morning the better for this different hike. The main view point they take you to so its nice, but there is another view point facing the Pitit piton that is way much better. Ask your guide if he or she can take you there. You are required to have 1 liter of water for the hike. They will sell a bottle for you for $3USD or you can buy one at the grocery store/gas station.
We spent the afternoon at the Soufriere beach park. Highly recommend going there as it is nearby and very picturesque.
Chef Ramsey cooked for us that evening. His meal was absolutely delicious and he cooked us a lot of food which we devoured as we were famished from the morning hike.
Thursday morning we toured the estate at mourne Coubaril. It was a quick tour but very informative especially. About the process of making chocolate. From the gift shop we bought local coffee and local chocolate made from the estate.
The afternoon we spent on the beach at Anse Chastanet. The beach is a little small and is mostly quiet and relaxing. For dinner we went to Dasheen (pretty pricey but such a good experience) I recommend a 6:00pm and go there at 5:30pm. They will send you to the bar to wait where you can have a drink overlooking both Pitons while they come around with food samples. Over dinner you can watch the sunset behind the Pitit Piton.
Friday we drove north to Pigeon Island. To enjoy the beach after hiking. This wasn’t my favorite experience but my husband enjoyed the old fort and the beach was lovely.
Later in the afternoon we drove south to marigot bay to have a couple drinks at Doolittles. Marigot bay is stunningly beautiful and I highly recommend getting lunch, dinner or even a drink there. Finally we head down to Anse La Raye fish fry for dinner. Honestly I was expecting a tourist trap but there were only a couple of us tourist here. Your should get there after 7pm as most of the fish ismt ready before that time.. The fish was simple, fresh and delicious.
We loved our stay and hope your stay is just as wonderful.
