What to do with only 6 hours in port?

Recommended Posts

Greetings!

 

We are soon to book a cruise that will be in St Lucia in December for only 6 hours between noon and 6pm. Seems like a very short time to enjoy this beautiful island! We were there in 2015 and did Spencer Ambrose's Sugar Beach tour. We rented upgraded loungers from the hotel and had an excellent day on the beach and in the water snorkelling. It doesn't sound like we will have enough time to repeat this experience. 

 

Does anyone have any ideas for how to spend just 6 hours on this stunning island? We enjoy the beach but have not seen St Lucia by land so we are open to suggestions. A short catamaran tour could be fun... I will be able to look into the ship's excursions (Crystal Serenity) once we officially book this voyage but thought I'd gather some ideas in the meantime. 

 

Thank you in advance, everyone!

Thank you reedprincess! It is appreciated! 🙂 

 

In addition to your TripAdvisor suggestions, do you have any nice restaurant recommendations for lunch? We like almost everything. It could be a funky beach bar or a nicer establishment. Something with an authentic St Lucian flair would likely be ideal. Thanks again!

It very much depends on what you end up doing. 

If you stay in the immediate area and go to Vigie Beach, eat at the boardwalk. All local east, the fish or stewed beef or lamb meals are great 

If Pigeon Island, Jambe Des Bois. Outstanding local eats and unique architecture.

If Rodney Bay, try Spinnaker's or head upstairs to JQ Mall and get one of the plate lunches from the food court.  Or hit  up Marie on the beach for her excellent rotis (west Indian burritos so to speak, shell wrapped around curried chicken or beef, chickpeas, potato).

Thank you yet again! Everything sounds delicious. We LOVE roti! Thanks again for your input. I'm confident we will have a fantastic time on St Lucia during our short visit. 🙂
