East Coast Drive
Barre de l’Isle Rainforest Nature Trail
This trail is the ideal way to acquaint yourself with the interior of the island. The trail leads 1,446 ft along Mount La Combe offering views of the Roseau and Mabouya valleys, Mount Gimie (the highest point in Saint Lucia), the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, and several coastal communities.
Fond d’Or Nature Reserve and Heritage Park
In the heart of Mabouya Valley is a site steeped in culture and history. The area was first settled by the island’s indigenous Amerindians and later used by European sugar producers. Relics include a windmill, a steam mill and boiling house. The hiking trail skirts a tropical forest, mangroves and dry scrub woodlands which host a range of birds, flora and fauna. The secluded beach is a nesting site between April and October for leatherback turtles.
La Tille Waterfall & Gardens
A serene tropical garden lined with flowers, fruit trees and ponds leads you to a 25 ft waterfall cascading into a natural pool. Man-made pools downstream are deeper – perfect for jumping from the overhanging swing!
Ziplining at Treetop Adventure Park, Errard
If you fancy flying through the forest 150 ft up, this mile long, world-class course at Errard Estate in Dennery is for you.
Sitting on a bluff, Mandele Lookout Point is an ideal pit stop with a birds-eye view of Dennery and the rock formations that adorn the bay. Treat yourself to barbecued meats and seafood, and refreshing beverages.
The Saint Lucia National Trust operates these twin micro-islands in Praslin Bay. Although spelled fregate, the cays are named after the frigate birds which nest here between May and July. The islands are off-limits to visitors but the mile-long trail on the mainland affords strategic views.
Enjoy the lush rainforest trails, an abundance of tropical flowers and a range of endangered plants. Brigands Bar serves snacks and refreshments; restrooms and free Wifi are available.
Island Breeze Restaurant & Bar
Found on picturesque Sandy Beach, this quaint establishment boasts some of the best seafood. Be sure to sample the lambi (conch)!
About a half-mile off Sandy Beach, the Maria Islands are a nature reserve and home to the rare whip-tailed lizard.
Possibly the highlight of this adventure, the lookout point near the Moule-a-Chique lighthouse provides a 360° view. Gaze down on Hewanorra airport and planes coming in to land, and across to the Pitons. On a clear day you can see our neighbour, Saint Vincent. If a stairway to heaven existed, we’re certain this viewpoint would be a part of it.
