The world's only drive-in volcano is located in Soufriere, Saint Lucia. Cars come right up to the crater, which emits harmless steam, not lava. Visitors can "take the waters" in the park's sulfuric pools, which are rich in detoxifying minerals that nourish the skin. Oh, and they're said to make you look and feel younger, too.
Emerging from the sea near Soufriere are two magnificent volcanic spires that form the backdrop of every Saint Lucian adventure. Thrill-seekers can hike the 25,000' Gros Piton, but its twin, Petit Piton, is steeper and more challenging. Enjoy the breathtaking views by zip line or, for a more relaxing experience, take a boat cruise by the majestic peaks. Don't forget to try the locally brewed beer that's named in their honor.
Saint Lucia is home to spectacular waterfalls, with temperatures ranging from cold to hot. Perhaps the most-visited is the 45' Diamond Waterfall, where a young Josephine Bonaparte may have bathed. It's a vigorous hike to the falls at Enbas Saut, but you might catch a glimpse of the popular Saint Lucian Parrot along the way. Finally, at the "Superman" Waterfall—nicknamed after the 1980 movie filmed here—you can explore an18th century sugar estate and enjoy incredible views of Mount Gimmie.
Is it real life or a fairytale? Make your most romantic fantasies come true on the island's northern coast, where guided horseback tours wend through luscious forest trails. End your adventure at Cas en Bas, a secluded beach where you can cool off with a swim or just enjoy alone time with your significant other.
The sea is the heart of any Saint Lucian experience. Float in crystal blue waters at Grand Anse and Reduit Beach, or go even deeper at the diving and snorkeling sites around Pigeon Island National Park and Marigot Bay. Take a whale- and dolphin watching excursion or charter a boat for a relaxing sunset cruise along the island’s coastline.
