The Caribbean is known for relaxing beachside vacations, but our island has so much more to offer! Saint Lucia has dozens of activities for explorers, thrill seekers, and nature lovers. You will need a vacation after this vacation once you finish exploring the island and its nearby shores. Check out our top five recommendations for thrill seekers in Saint Lucia.
1. Dive Around Marine Sanctuaries
Saint Lucia is an essential island for divers, snorkelers, and amateur marine biologists. We have all kinds of dive sites for you to explore, regardless of your experience level. Swim through the underwater gardens in search of sea turtles, or check out reefs forming near the Pitons. Our waters are as colorful and diverse as the plants and animals found on land.
2. Soar Across Crystal Clear Waters
You don’t have to be a diver to love the Caribbean waters! Kitesurfing is popular in Saint Lucia along the Atlantic side. Hold on tight as your kite carries you across the waves, depositing you safely on shore and impressing everyone around. Be sure to stop by Coconut Bay’s Surf Shack to inquire about kitesurfing and windsurfing lessons.
3. Drive Off the Beaten Path
There are multiple ways to explore Saint Lucia on wheels. Hop onto a dune buggy and explore the rainforest with a dedicated guide. They can take you to see native flora and fauna up close, or drive by ruins from when the Dutch, French, and English fought over the island.
If dune buggies aren’t your thing, grab some four wheelers (ATV) to ride on a black sand beach. You can stop at a few of the best sights in the south with options to swim, explore and make the best memories.
4. Zipline Through Tropical Forests
If you don’t want to be on the water, head into the air. Saint Lucia is home to vast tropical forests with beautiful birds and exotic reptiles. Families and beginners can learn the basics of ziplining, and then expand to more advanced courses that fly by the Pitons before being carried into a canopy of trees and across a bamboo-shadowed gorge.
5. Plunge Into Waterfalls
Once you’re done ziplining through the canopy, cool off in one of Saint Lucia’s many forest waterfalls. You can hike around the island and dive into the clear waters, or head straight to the falls for a quick swim. The Toraille Waterfalls are a can’t-miss for thrill-loving visitors.
At the end of the day, you can curl up on a pool chair by any of our five pools and swap stories about your adventures with other guests, or party through the night with live music, dancing, and custom cocktails at Peter John’s Lounge. You decide just how exciting or relaxing your Saint Lucia vacation is when you stay at Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa!
