Not many countries can offer both vibrant culture and stunning natural wonders like Saint Lucia. Its two towering peaks capture the imagination of all who visit, and its community brings inspiration from across the world to create unique music, food and art.
So what can families hoping to explore Caribbean beauty, and have a wonderful time together, expect to find in Saint Lucia for an unforgettable family holiday?
Going back to nature
You’ll be amazed at the huge variety of species you can find in Saint Lucia – things you’ll never have seen before. Choose fascinating guided nature trails through the island, and see vibrantly coloured flowers and plants as well as rare wildlife at its nature reserves and botanical gardens. At the same time, you can enjoy the fantastic views of the twin mountains, the Pitons.
A drive-in volcano
It’s an experience you and your family can’t get anywhere else in the world – the chance to see a breathtaking geological marvel from within. The crater, also known as Sulphur Springs, stretches 4 kilometres, and you’re able to drive right in and experience the amazing space for yourself. You can even take a quick bath in the hot springs and feel the healing mud on your skin.

At spectacular, beautiful Rodney Bay, you’ll find Splash Island – a wonderful water park featuring inflatables and floating platforms just off the coast. It’s perfect for letting the children enjoy themselves for a whole day!
You can later head back to the shoreline of the fantastic bay to spend a relaxing family afternoon on the warm, sandy beach. Rodney Bay is also surrounded by lively, bustling cafes, shops and restaurants you can peruse at your leisure.
