The Fresh Lobster Travels to St. Lucia
Recently wed, Stephanie and her husband jetted off to St. Lucia for their honeymoon. And it was our good fortune that they took The Fresh Lobster with them!
Honestly, we didn’t know too much about Saint Lucia. So, being curious, we did a little research. (And got very jealous of Stephanie, too.
We found out that this is an island on which you can you wake up to a symphony of birds and drive through a volcano! St. Lucia stands apart from the rest of the Caribbean islands due to its varied landscape and diverse culture and cuisine, which is distinguished by African, Indian, Caribbean, British, Spanish and French influences. You can explore everything from the Piton Mountains and rainforest to the Sulphur Springs of Soufriere and the Caribbean coral reef on this 238 square-mile island in paradise.
5 Cool Things to Do in St. Lucia:
- The Way of the Pitons. Both peaks can be climbed on hikes of varying degrees of diffuclutly. Both peaks offer sweeping panoramic views fo the island, the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Some folks have even caught a view of humpback whales.
- Sulfur Springs Park. The springs are located in a famed driv-in volcano and offers a glimpse of the bubbling, boiling heart of St. Lucia. Visitors can experience a full-body mud bath, which is said to have restorative and rejuvenating properties.
- Pigeon Island. This is a fun place to explore, with paths winding around the remains of barracks, batteries and garrisons whose partially intact stone buildings create a ghost-town effect.There are huge trees, manicured lawns and amazing coastal views. At the top of Fort Rodney Hill, there is a small, but well-preserved fort, complete with old, rusting cannons. The views from here are something to behold.
- Aerial Tram and Zipline Canopy Tour. This is a guided aerial tram tour over the rainforest’s canopy which then moves on to a thrilling zip line course with 10 ziplines, a canopy gondola ride and a scenic rainforest hike.
- Take a Segway Nature Trail. You can explore the historical wonders of Mt Pimard as you “glide” effortlessly along the 1.7-mile trail system. There is a naturalist guide who will tell you everything about the nature that surrounds you, as well as about the history of this island jewel.
