Saint Lucia, Helen of the West Indies, is a bewitching Caribbean island. A land which has seen both French and English rulers; this now-sovereign country in the Caribbean sea is an alluring attraction because of its tropical weather, scenic beaches, and blissful resorts. One of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, Saint Lucia is a place of unique culture and exquisite coasts which makes it an ideal getaway for your next beach vacation.
Actually, the gorgeous island of Saint Lucia is more than your usual beach destination; it is the queen of such lands. If you plan on vacationing here, you can do the usual stuff like - the hike of Pitons, Gros and Petit, two mountainous volcanic plugs which rise over 700 m directly from the sea or roam the St. Lucia Botanical Gardens which has an exorbitant no. of plant species plus a sulfur waterfall, but since this write-up is about finding something unique to do in Saint Lucia, we will discuss just that. Here we list the 5 most unique things you can do in Saint Lucia:
Drive-in Sulphur Springs
When you touch base at Saint Lucia, the smell of sulfur will rush to fill up your nostrils. This whiff of sulfur comes from this Caribbean island’s captivating landmark, the Sulphur Springs. It is probably the world’s only drive-in volcano, i.e. you can literally drive up to the spring’s edge. You can also visit the nearby park where you are greeted with hot spring water pits and mud pools. Sulfur and other minerals organically flow through the water and are known to be beneficial for skin related ailments, so that’s what tourists like to do here - they take a mud bath in 100+ Fahrenheit sulfur water. Ain’t that something?
Climb the Stairs to Heaven
At Tet Paul Nature Trail, there’s a stairway which takes you to a highland where you get to see stunning and mesmerizing views of Saint Lucia, especially of the heart-throbbing Pitons. People hike the Pitons usually to get the best views of the island but you don’t have to go through that much trouble if you just want to make a leisurely climb to a place from where you can see the whole island. Just climb the Stairway to heaven and be amazed. More so, this stairway is built amidst lustrous verdant trees with en route native houses and population which gives this hike a rather unique feel.
You must know that Saint Lucia is great for honeymooning! Well, we ask, what’s wrong in getting married there? What’s not impossibly-beautiful in saying your vows under the verdant shadows of captivating coconut trees while soothing waves wash up on the gorgeous coast of an alluring blue sea. Once the vows are over with, you and your better-half can head to a luxurious resort villa where you can splash around in a plunge pool or sip cocktails in your private Jacuzzi while feasting your eyes on the seductive contours of the island. Who says there’s no paradise on Earth!
Foray into Fort Morne Fortune
The French and the British have fought hard for the control of this West Indian island. The symbol signifying their bloody wars still stands. This symbol is the hilly town of Morne Fortune which is south of Castries in Saint Lucia. Since throughout the history, Saint Lucia has been caught time and again in the tussle of imperialistic pursuit, there are many reminders throughout the Morne Fortune area of the wars that have been fought for its control. One of such memorials is the memorial to the 27th Inniskilling Regiment. Presently, this city hosts the University of the West Indies and the official residence of the Governor-General of Saint Lucia along with pleasing sights of the fascinating Caribbean sea.
Treetop Adventure Park
An adrenaline-filled enterprise, the Treetop Adventure Park in Saint Lucia increases and fulfills your thrill appetite by letting you partake in the criss-cross adventure rides of the park which has been constructed inside a forest. If during one of such rides, you bear the heart to look down from the top, you catch glimpses of verdurous trees and chirping birds cycling around you with feverish fervor. If you are not interested in these rides, worry not, you can also book a safari at the Park which will take you around the eastern coast of the island or put down your name for an expedition of the Saint Lucia rainforest. Enticing, right?
