Saint Lucia Vacations

Your Saint Lucia vacation

Named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse, the stunning volcanic island of St. Lucia is broken into picturesque parishes, swept by warm trade winds and cut by snaking roads, which run along rugged coastline. Home to both white- and dark-sand beaches, it's also a place to take in local music and quadrille dance or score artisan-made batik clothing and tropical art.

Let Orbitz help you plan the perfect St. Lucia vacation, complete with visits to natural wonders and local gems. With top attractions, insider tips and the best time to go, you'll get the skinny on where to explore and what to do during your St. Lucia vacation.

Best time to take a vacation to Saint Lucia

  • December through May are peak season, marked by the most reliably dry weather -- not to mention the end of the Atlantic hurricane season (June through November). For fewer crowds and lower rates, St. Lucia's wet season occurs from the beginning of June and extends through July – the earlier period of hurricane season.

    The Saint Lucian Jazz Festival, which booms with Caribbean music, is held for 10 days each May. The island also hosts the cultural festivals of La Rose and La Marguerite, in August and October respectively, when feasting and folk dancing are in full swing.

Insider tips for Saint Lucia travel

  • Anse Cochon beach

    Take a boat to the remote, dark-sand Anse Cochon beach, site of a pretty swimming, snorkeling and diving-friendly reef.

  • Eat like locals

    Eat like locals in and around Soufrière, Rodney Bay Castries and Gros Islet, where typical St. Lucian meals are abundant with seafood and ripe, Caribbean fruit.

  • Gros Inlet Jump-Up

    Attend the weekly Friday night Gros Inlet Jump-Up, when locals take to the square and cut a rug.

  • Cricket

    Cricket is ultra-popular in St. Lucia, and there's no better place to catch a match than at Beausejour Stadium.
