We arrived mid-afternoon from the north side of the island- what a drive! Janus was here to meet us and show us around the villa. We had a few pitons here then headed to Anse Chastanet for a couple drinks and the sunset ($25 USD- 1 piton+ Pina colada) Beautiful black sand + breathtaking spot for sunset. The drive to the beach is intense, but we were glad we rented a car through island cars 😊. Headed back to the villa for dinner then rest.
Breakfast + Coffee at the villa to start our day and take in the view. Headed straight to the Tet Paul Nature Trail for our 1st stop ( $10 USD pp) This is a must with stunning views! Next stop was Piton Falls ($3 USD PP) and then to the Sulphur Springs mud baths ($55UDD PP). Both equally fun but they don’t take very long, we made it back to the villa before noon for lunch + pitons. Tanned and drank by the pool for quite a while then Janus picked us up for a tour of Sargas Villa. Beautiful view and Janus’s story is so inspiring!! Dinner at Boucan with an amazing view of Petit Piton + the sunset. I enjoyed the food but my husband did not. If we were to go back we’d skip straight to the lava cake! ($175 USD- 5 drinks, 1 app, 2 entres + dessert)
We started at Sugar Beach for a beautiful day in the sun. Parked at the top, walked down ($10 to park) Laid our towels in front of a big sandy tree and enjoyed the amazing view. This is a must-see beach in our eyes. Blaze helped us out with snorkel gear ($10 USD pp) plus the fishes were incredible here! Bring a little bread in your pockets to feed the fishes, they will go nuts! We also had two Pina Coladas from Blaze ($15 for 2) they were delish but weak! We went to the bar to get a receipt and a ride back up the hill and we had an amazing day. Back to the Villa for showers + dinner. Then to Dasheene for drinks + dessert. If you like pistachio ice cream then you will love theirs! The people were extremely kind here!
Headed to Anse Mamin to hit the beach bright and early! Since we were there all day we bought the beach chairs ($16/pp) + it was totally worth it! We were bummed to find out you cannot rent snorkeling gear but we made the best of the crystal-clear water and black sand. Split the buffer + everyone raves about it… So worth it!! Extremely sun burnt we decided to stay at the villa + the views of the pitons on our last day.
Special thank you to Janus+ wonderful team! The fresh fruit and bread were added bonuses to this amazing villa + for the day the stores were closed early due to carnival we could not find rum. Janus sent his team to find rum and Pina Colada ingredients + bring them to our door! Just wow! Your hospitality + customer service is amazing + your happy smile is contagious! Keep being awesome 😊

While most places in the world have four well-defined seasons, its proximity to the equator means that this is not really the case for the island of St. Lucia.
