Saint Lucia highlights
Finding a peaceful beach won't be difficult on your St. Lucia travels. But if you're after a bit of spice, head on down to lively Reduit. As a major tourist hotspot, there's no shortage of bars, restaurants, water sports and bronzed locals. Stroll through the amber sands, or take in a cocktail while watching the sunset.
If the bustle of tourists isn't your thing, embark on an undersea adventure at Anse Chastanet, arguably one of the most stunning beaches in St. Lucia. Hire a snorkel and flippers for a few dollars and spend the day exploring Saint Lucia from below.
Feeling a little highbrow ... but can't afford your own yacht? Play pretend with a trip to Marigot Bay. The setting for a few Hollywood productions, there is a reason why this idyllic bay is so popular with the posh. Sitting by the shore and gazing across the azure waters won't cost you a dime.
If you want to squeeze in some shopping on your St. Lucian travels, look no further than Castries Market. From sumptuous fresh produce to quaint handmade pottery, you'll score some great bargains here. Revel in the Saint Lucian spirit as you walk around in your grass hat while nibbling on some fresh coconut.
Pigeon Island National Landmark
No St. Lucia travel experience would be complete without a daytrip to Pigeon Island. Heralded as one of the island's most important and beautiful landmarks, this living museum is full of intriguing ruins of military buildings, breathtaking beaches, restaurants and a stunning lookout point. Better yet: It's only $5 a visit for adults.
