Experiencing Saint Lucia for the first time is a heady delight, filled with awe-inspiring discoveries and breathtaking sights. It’s difficult to know where to begin, so we’ve rounded up five top tips for making the most of your first holiday here.
Visit the World’s Only Drive-Through Volcano
The Soufriere Sulphur Springs features the only drive-in volcano in the world. This is a must-see for any first-time visitor to Saint Lucia. You can book a half-day excursion that combines this stunning sight with other nearby attractions like the Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens, Moule a Chique peninsula, Jalousie Beach, and other highlights.
Enjoy the Majesty of the Pitons
The twin peaks of the Pitons are a UNESCO World Heritage Site that deserves ample time and attention. Though you can’t miss the peaks lingering in the distance, you can go above and beyond on your vacation and enjoy the Pitons on a zipline excursion or take in their majesty from the water on a sailing and snorkeling tour, both available from Coconut Bay.
Stay at an All-Inclusive Resort
Make your visit to Saint Lucia as affordable as possible by staying at an all-inclusive resort like Coconut Bay. We don’t charge any resort fees, so you’re never surprised by your bill. Dining, entertainment, and water park access are all included in your unforgettable stay.
Indulge in the Flavors of the Island
Coconut Bay offers an abundance of dining experiences that will give you a distinctive taste of the island. Enjoy fine dining at La Luna where you can indulge in island crab cakes or shrimp in a citrus beurre blanc. The fine flavors at Calabash highlight Caribbean and Creole influences and utilize fresh produce from the on-site greenhouses. The Jerk Treehouse offers casual dining packed with flavor in the form of jerk pork, chicken and sausage topped with our secret jerk sauce.
Make a Splash in Coconut Bay’s Pools
Saint Lucia’s warm, sunny weather is perfect for a dip any time of the year. Coconut Bay has five pools and the island’s largest waterpark just begging you to jump in and make a splash. You can participate in scheduled activities like activities like aquacise classes, pool volleyball, and foam pool parties, or visit on your own schedule. The Splash Pool is a family favorite with its zero-depth entry, playful fountains, and cascading waterfalls. For a quieter experience, visit the adults-only Harmony Tiki Pool.
