Sorry another what to do in St Lucia question!

Recommended Posts

I know this question is asked a lot, so apologies. This will be our third time to St Lucia, first time we did a full day tour by land and sea which included the mud baths and Pitons. Second time we went to Marigot Bay which to be honest we didn’t enjoy. For some reason we have yet to fall in love with St Lucia and we both love the Carribean. We will be visiting in November and are not sure what to do, we will we stay onboard the ship or what? We do find when you get off the ship trying to decide what to do is tough when you have many locals shouting at you to take their tours, it’s off putting so we’d love to have an idea of ANYTHING to do.

 

Any recommendations for just the morning/half day would be greatly appreciated, please 😎

Head to Pigeon Island and take in the beautiful scenery, beach, ruins, hikes, and great restaurants and bars. 30-35 minutes from port, $35 one way cab ride, $8 entrance fee (national park). Some tour operators offer it as a tour also, can work out less expensive. Viator or Serenity TVL come to mind, like Shoretrips and SboreExcursioneers... History, scenery, hiking, beach and snorkeling if you want .

Take the Beach Break straight down to Jalousie Beach between the Pitons for 4-5 hours beach time, lunch, drinks. See other posts for tour company. Very poor cruise tour company offers this..

Try something different and go to LaTille Falls. It's on the East coast The operator is an absolutely fascinating Rasta man, former college professor, built up his entire place himself. Gorgeous cold water falls, rope swing, natural fish spa, organic medicine garden...

Try some adventure touring, and head to Rainforest Adventures for zip line and aerial tram ride through the rainforest.. or take the buggy tour, drive your own dune buggy around the island to sights south of Soufriere.. 

Try horseback riding to Cas En Bas beach up north.  

Segway tour around the hills surrounding Rodney Bay.

Wall over to Vigie Beach for a truly local beach Experience with the small boardwalk with local eats and drinks, etc. 

Try a different adventure down to Treetop Adventures and zip line and waterfall hike and swim.

Mountain Bike at Anse Chastenet.

Try the Tet Paul trail and Plantation your at Morne Coubaril

Hike the Piton

Tell your driver to take you to Laborie, a small non-touristy fishing village on the other end of the island. Enjoy unspoilt beach, local food and drinks.

Head to Calabash Cove and do a hotel visit, swim, lunch. Sublime delectable experience, amazing views and divine food, adults only.

Try the Splash Park at Bay Gardens on Reduit Beach for some fun in the sea and fun.

Do an around the island drive and have driver stop at his favorite local spots

Kite surf.

Wind surf

Diving

Snorkel tour 

And so on.. surely something will appeal!

Enjoy.

We did a ship's tour in St. Lucia- and are glad we did due to the driving on curvy roads!

 

Curious what made it any different to be in a ship's tour versus independently tour with regards to the roads? The drivers and vehicles on ship's tours are still all locals.  And the roads are the same.
