St. Lucia

               

With its iconic twin peaks — the Pitons — erupting half a mile straight up from aquamarine waters, you might mistake St. Lucia for a South Pacific island. A former British colony and one of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, St. Lucia is tucked between Martinique and St. Vincent.

 

This small, lush, unspoiled tropical gem is a perfect sailing destination. The island’s roots are a blend of British and French, with control of the island passing between the two so often that the island’s nickname became “Helen” — after Helen of Troy. Though, most of the place names remain French.

 

Popular attractions:

  • Sail into palm-fringed Marigot Bay, one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful with unforgettable scenery.
  • Hike the Piton Mountains for breath-taking island views or stroll through Diamond Botanical Gardens and its waterfall at the foot.
  • Visit the nearby Creole town of Soufriére (named after the nearby dormant, “drive-through” volcano) and take a dip in the volcano-heated hot springs and mud baths at Sulphur Springs.
  • Party with the locals at the Friday night “jump-up” at Gros Islet on Rodney Bay, which is home to a full-service yachting center with a marina, shops and restaurants.
  • Swim at Reduit Beach, St. Lucia’s most popular, mile-long stretch of golden sand, then visit Pigeon Island National Park with its a mix of historic buildings, beaches and walking trails.
  •  Don’t miss Anse Chastanet beach with its striking black sand and crystal blue water.

 

St. Lucia’s windy conditions and exposure to Atlantic swells can be challenging, but it also has many sheltered bays and harbors so there is plenty of line-of-sight sailing to be had. In addition to sailing, St. Lucia is still a diving paradise. Below the sea are forests of coral trees, barrel and vase sponges, and lace coral too.
