Day 2: First full day in town- came in the night before, as per email from Janus, we stopped off @ Massey for groceries & Supplies. Janus was wonderful, gave us directions & met us to show the stretch to the apartment. What an amazing view! Coffee + BF on the balcony, what an amazing view!
Packed up gear and headed to Anse Chastanet, what a drive! Roads were tricky so be careful. Pay Attention! Wonderful day @ Jade Mountain beach , snorkeled for a few hours, amazing! Then lunch at the beach bar. Jerk pork, callalou + crab soup was delicious. Recommend the snorkeling here!
We walked over to Anse Mamin Beach. Water was a bit more choppy; snorkeling was not as good there! Heard the burger there is the best but we left our $$ in the car , lunch for another day.
Dinner at Ruby’s was ok.
Day 3: Sulphur Springs – Go early when they open you will have the place all to yourself! Was wonderful!
Did the Tet Paul Nature Trail.
Lunch @ Dasheene Ladera – view is absolutely breathtaking, better than view for Boucan. An absolute must if you can!
Sugar Beach : walk down was long! View is amazing! Got the chairs close to the Piton where you snokel- those are FREE! Snorkeled, watched the sun almost go down while sipping a Piton Beer @ the beach bar! We did that so we could get a ride Back up the hill.
Dinner & Drinks at Boucan. Food was amazing!
Day 4: Drove from here to Castries, stopped along the way @ a few places, went to Pigeon Point, climbed up to the front – Do it!, view is amazing! When we came back down we found out Prince Harry was visiting so stuck around to see him . Had a swim after, walked over to Sandals, on the way back, stopped off @ Rodney Bay, Reduit Beach, drove through down town Castries – back to the apartment.
Day 5: BF @home, then went down to the town to check the market. Was OK. Not much of a selection. Pay Attention to cost and what is charged, we got charged for 8 coconuts when the vendor only cut 6! Not much in the Bakery, was a bit disappointed .
Lunch at Fedos
Spend the afternoon at the beach Anse Chastanet.
Day 6: trip into town for supplies, it’s Sunday so lots of stores closed. Visited Torille waterfall. U.S $3.00. Lunch at Marie’s next to Botanical Gardens was good, Local goat buffet. U.S $15.00. Spent afternoon @ local beach, opposite Sugar Beach, really quiet not a lot of people, a but rocky but calm waters.
Day 7 : Woke up to rain! Lots of rain! Weather forecast says it would rain all day!. Plan to have lunch at Fedo’s, took a trip to the beach – Sugar Beach, water was a bit rough- due to rain. Dinner @ Mango Tree- Stonefield Resort, food was ok.
Day 8: Back Home
Thank you Janus for your help during our stay.

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.
