One day in St. Lucia

The most famous sights are the Petit and Gros pitons – two volcanic peaks. You can hike them however you will need some time. I was told the grand Piton is easier, even though it’s higher and that you had to take a guide.
As a souvenir I took some cocoa sticks with me. You can make Caribbean Cocoa Tea with them - tasty.

Castries is the Capital of St. Lucia with the Immaculate Conception Church.


From Morne Fortune you have a nice view over Castries Harbour.

On the way to Soufriere you have some nice views of the Pitons.

Tet Paul Nature Trail with a nice view of the Pitons.


Sulphur Springs

It is advertised as the only drive in volcano in the world. You can drive to the edge of the springs and walk on wooden pathways. In the past it was possible to walk towards the pits, however after an accident with a guide, it was decided that it was too dangerous. You can also take a mud bath.

View of Marigot Bay


Botanical Garden

I wanted to go there because of the Diamond Falls, however I was surprised at the beauty of the botanical garden.
The Diamond Falls always look a little bit different because of the mineral sediments. This is how they looked in January 2020.

Toraille Waterfall

On the way back we stopped at a cliff and our guide made a sign to make some guys cliff dive. I didn’t get any good photos, however this is a picture of the spot.
Another Spot I was interested in is a sheltered bay named Anse Chastanet. Pigeon Island also sounded interesting.
