St. Lucia Must Sees/Do

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

So excited...we are honeymooning in St. Lucia at the Sandals Grande and I was just wondering what are the must sees? Any restaurants that we should visit? Should we book with any particular tour company? Thanks

Hi Classadiva,

 

I would recommend to visit the Pitons (mountains) as the are gorgeous and it's a World Heritage Site. If you go in this area of St-Lucia (called Soufrière), you can also visit old plantations, go to the drive-in volcano and Sulfur Springs.

 

I have not been there yet but I am planning my wedding in Soufrière for 2011 at Jade Mountain. I have found many reviews of the different tours providers on Trip Advisor (Attractions section). Hope this can be useful!

 

Enjoy your honeymoon and if you do a review of your honeymoon in St.Lucia, I will be more than happy to read it! :-)

 

P.S. Sorry for the mispelling and bad grammar... Shame on me Frenchie!

I highly suggest Cosol Tours. My fiance and I were in St. Lucia on a cruise last fall. We took his tour which goes to many parts of St.lucia including sulpher springs. The best part is when you take a boat ride to the pitons and swim at the beach right in between. It was the most beautiful place I have ever been to. On the tour you also stop and taste some local foods and bread on the way back. He also has a beverage bus the follows you with plenty of rum punch, pitons beer, soda and water. He's a fun guy you would have a blast.

Not sure when if you went on your honeymoon yet, but here are some suggestions.

 

Restaurants:

*The Edge has to to be one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at.  So delicious and sits right on Rodney Bay.

*Rainforest Hideaway in Margot Bay is another great restaurant.  You take a little boat to get to it and it has a great romantic feel

*Jacques is Castries is where I had the dinner part of my reception.  Super nice people, good food, and again, it sits right on the water.

 

Activities:

*Definitely go to the Jump-Up on Friday night in Gros Islet.  It's fun to see the local and tourists partying together and we got some great street food.  My favorite was some kind of chicken pocket and my group sold this woman out of them at the beginning of the night.  I had some really yummy guava ice cream from the ice shop/

*Sulphur Springs isn't the most exciting thng, but you should definitely check it out once.  There are a couple of cool waterfalls that you can go to near there and actually swim in them, but I can't remember the names right now.

*One word...Catamaran!  We went with Carnival and had a blast.  I know there's another company called Mango Tango that my wedding coordinator recommended.

*I missed out on zip-lining through the rainforest, but next time we go back I will definitely do it.  Some of our wedding guests went and loved it.

*I would skip the Botanical Gardens unless you're really into going to that.

 

I recommend finding a cab driver that you really like and paying him to take you on a tour for a day. I did both an organized tour and a personal tour and liked the personal one better.  They were both good though.

 

St. Lucia is a beautiful, fun, safe island, so the most important thing to remember is that you want to get out of your all-inclusive resort and experience the island.  Don't just hide out the whole time because you'll miss out on so much. 

 

If you already went on your honeymoon, I already know it was fabulous.  If not, then have a blast!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
