Things to do in Saint Lucia

Saint lucia might be relatively small in terms of land area but it punches above its weight in terms of things to do. From lounging on some of the best beaches anywhere to getting adrenaline thrills on the open water.

These are places we have actually visited, or activities we have partaken in, and are listed in no particular order and we recieve no reward for their inclusion. I got married at the Stonefield estate in 2006.

The Climate and Weather in St Lucia

The weather in Saint Lucia is very agreeable most of the time, being warm with sea breezes and around 8 to 11 hours full sun every day.

Being near the equator means the day lengths vary very little over the course of the year.

This is a lovely sunny morning on jalousie beach right between the pitons.
