1. Hike The Pitons
Hiking the Gros Piton and Petit Piton can be quite a challenge but if you girls are the adventurous, athletic type, and looking for things to do whilst in St.Lucia, this is definitely an activity for you. It is possible to climb both pitons but climbing the petit piton can be very dangerous. You have a better trail on the Gros Piton. The climb takes about, two hours up and two hours down, so get ready with your water and a small snack.
Once you get up the mountain, trust me you will not regret the view. It is the most spectacular thing you will ever lay your eyes on. You will forget all about the climb you just did.
Best Resort Beside the Pitons
The Ladera Resort
The Ladera Resort is one of St.Lucia’s most luxurious resorts. You and your girls will enjoy the view from your bedroom of the majestic pitons without opening the doors to your room because guess what, there are no doors. The Pitons are only a mere 7 minutes drive from the resort so you can take a taxi or if you are adventurous you can take a drive yourself.
2. Take a Sulphur Bath
You and your girls have been working all year round and that has taken a toll on your body and skin. What if I tell you that taking a dip into this sulphur bath will leave your skin looking and feeling ten years younger. Soak those aching muscles from all the stress of the week before. Don’t forget to put the sulphur all over you and let it dry to get that fresh young feeling.
One thing to remember when visiting the sulphur bath is to wear an old swimsuit because it will get ruined, also any jewelry should be left behind. Although it will not damage real gold, it will turn it for a couple days, so be careful with that.
Best Place to Stay Beside the Sulphur Bath
Boucan by Hotel Chocolat
If you ladies have a sweet tooth then this is definitely the hotel for you. The name alone tells you what it is all about. The Boucan By Hotel Chocolat all-inclusive resort has 14 guestrooms, so if you are traveling with a big group you and your girls will be properly accommodated. It is only a 25-minute walk from the sulphur springs so you can have a nice walk to your bath. There are many nature trails around this resort like Tet Paul where you can see the most spectacular view of the pitons.
3. Visit The Piton Falls
You and your girls are in for a treat with this one. The piton falls is known to be one of the best waterfalls on the island. What makes it the best you ask, well first off it has warm water flowing from it. Think about coming from that long hike and just soaking in the warm mineral water. Soak those muscles for your next day of adventure in St.Lucia.
Whiles there don’t forget to get right under the falls, it is the perfect picture for the loved ones back home. They will be wishing they came to enjoy St.Lucia with you, but this was your girls trip, so maybe next time.

Stonefield Estate Resort
Although this is not an all-inclusive resort, you and your girls will definitely enjoy the Stonefield Estate Resort. It is about a 42-minute walk to the piton falls which makes it about a 10 to 15-minute drive, if you don’t feel like walking for that long in the hot blazing St.Lucian sun. Among the many amenities, there is also a free shuttle that could be used to the airport. If you and your girls are just looking for some quiet time then this might be the place for you.
4. Island Hopping!!!!
You girls have been on the island of St.Lucia for a couple of days now and to be honest it is a small island. Why not try another? There are two other islands nearby that you can visit for the day and shop till you drop. Fly on over to the Grenadines for the day with Serenity Tours. They are the only ones on the island that provide that tour.
Still, want to try another island, Martinique is also close by. Get your girls together and visit this small French volcanic island. The tour can be booked through TripAdvisor. Both these tours can be a private tour for you and your girls and also have a hired photographer.
Best Places to Stay for Island Tours

Hop on a bus and head on down to Castries to visit. There is always something going on, especially in the Castries Market. The cost of the bus starts anywhere from $1.50 ECD (Eastern Caribbean Dollar) and can go all the way to $5 ECD.

9. Pigeon Island Waterpark
On most days in St.Lucia, you are looking at a temperature of almost 30 degrees Celsius, almost every day, and you can add humidity to that as well. You will want to be in the water most of the time.
Spending the day at the Pigeon Island Water Park is not a bad way to cool off. You get to jump around like a kid again and bring in some of that cardio you have been slacking off all week. You get to do an hour of jumping around and doing almost a full obstacle course. Sounds like a fun hour to me.
Best Places to Stay
If you want to be close to the waterpark there are many resorts that are close by. Bay Garden Resorts offer complimentary passes to this attraction, so this may be something you guys would want to look into.
