Why go to St Lucia

This Caribbean queen is arguably the fairest of them all; it’s a lush paradise where forest-cloaked peaks soar above sandy beaches and clear, warm waters lap the coast year round. But it’s not all about soaking up the sun. From zip-lining through the rainforest to driving into a volcano, St Lucia holidays have plenty of action to offer too.

St Lucia is really an island of two halves. The north, broadly speaking, is more built up and lively in character. Not only will you find the majority of the island’s hotels here, but it’s also where you’ll discover the best of its nightlife. In particular, St Lucia is famed for its two Friday night street parties – at Gros Islet’s ‘Jump Up’ and Anse La Raye’s ‘Fish Fry’. Head here for a late one with the locals.

The more mountainous south is quieter and greener, and is home to the instantly recognisable double Piton peaks. Here, you can hike in the rainforest or even drive into a dormant volcano, past bubbling sulphur pools. There are fewer local settlements in this area and hotels tend to be secluded, high-end hideaways with deluxe spas largely catering to couples looking for a more laid-back experience.

Of course, being a Caribbean island, St Lucia is a good choice for a chilled out beach break. The beaches in the north are golden, with those further south taking on a silver-dark tinge thanks to the island’s volcanic origins.

Offshore life is vibrant too, with numerous catamaran cruises in the daytime for snorkelling. Beneath the surface, you’ll find a vivid world inhabited by colourful corals, schools of squid and darting reef fish. Divers can scuba among green and hawksbill turtles, and visit the wreck of a freighter 9m (30ft) below the surface.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
