We came here seeking adventure and beauty for our family of four, Leaving with our hearts full from the places we’ve seen and people we’ve met! Most people have highlighted top things to do so we will just write our favs.
Places to eat
Boucan - For lunch is a must! One of the most amazing meals we’ve ever had and lunch prices so reasonable (try 3 skewers, lava cake, antilla chocolate stout beer😊 it was my birthday (Lisa”43”) so they even danced and sang for me.
Mango Tree – ate here twice. Sunday night is an inexpensive tepas menu – delicious. Regular weekday there nights don’t start until 6:50 so call ahead. They went out of their way to feed us early for my son’s birthday. Celebrated with song & cake (shane “14”) sunset views and added bonus - bring camera!
Ruby’s - Ate here twice for convenience. Loved our second non-pizza night (pizza just ok). Wings – some of the best ever tasted. Really enjoyed Shrimp Stir-fry.
Places to go
Get a car! It’s a little scary to do at first but must for the adventure seeker.
Road Trip to the east side of the island – included accidental drive to light house - wow most spectacular view of island (better than vie on pitons).
Tree top adventure zipline – some more gorgeous view of jungle mixed with thrill seeking times, shout out to our guides popcorn and Nelson.
Dennery Falls – Hidden gem. This is a must if you are out here. By far the most beautiful spot! Down the road from zipline.
Feel Good Taxi Tours – arranged this from states. Daniel picked us up in town and took us to about 5 incredible snorkeling spots on the west coast followed by lunch prepared by his wife on the beach.
Gros Piton Hike – Be wared this is a climb, not a hike! Toughest thing we’ve all done and we are a pretty fit family. Rocks are steep & slippery which makes both ways hard, worth the views and bragging rights.
Zion Lion Farm – another tour planned home. Paul – owner – messed up our date but we rescheduled and his nephew Vikki led the day. We spent the morning touring his town 17th heaven and seeing local crafters (pot clay maker, grass furniture and wood carver). Then Vikki showed us his farm and taught us a lot about history of his island, his local village and the desire to preserve their traditions organic farming. Lunch was traditionally made in clay pots down a long Yukana Bay. Joann made tuna and chicken with lots of local veggies and most amazing coconut veggie rice. Vikki also lead snorkeling around beach, nicest family here on St. Lucia!
Best Beach, sugar Beach.
Best Villa too Janus! We will miss this place of paradise.

WEATHER IN SAINT LUCIA
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.
