Tell us about your amazing trip to St Lucia
My partner and I (both 22) visited Saint Lucia in February of 2018 for the 5th time. We are both from Germany (and St. Lucia is quite unknown here) so we had to book two separate flights (Munich-London; London- St. Lucia). It was our first time visiting St. Lucia in February. We highly recommend also visiting St. Lucia during the June-September months!!
Where did you stay while on your amazing trip to St Lucia?
Usually, we stayed at The Landings Resort & Spa which is a really beautiful Hotel located on an even more beautiful beach in the north of St. Lucia. This time we only stayed for one week at this gorgeous hotel. We wanted to see more of St. Lucia that’s why we booked an Apartment in Rodney Bay (Villa Judz, booked via Tropical Holidays Group) for the first two weeks of our vacation.
What activities did you do in St Lucia?
They are a few things we did on our amazing trip to St Lucia. We rented a car so that we could explore the island on our own. Our first stop was Marigot Bay, a really beautiful place. We took a Mad Bath at Sulphur Springs and visited the diamond falls in Soufriere.
We also visited the Pigeon Island National Park where we had a great view of the whole island. We definitely also recommend a trip down to Martinique (we visited Martinique for 3 days and it’s a beautiful island, too). A Catamaran Sightseeing Cruise or a Sunset Cruise is also a great way to see more of St. Lucia so we usually book one of those tours during our stay.

My husband and I have been looking everywhere for somewhere to go on our 5 year anniversary trip. We hadn’t considered St. Lucia before this post. I also noticed one of your pictures was with a puppy friend! Was this your dog that you brought with you? We are always sad leaving our puppy behind.March 31, 2018 at 10:12 pm
This post was from one of our readers. I can always ask and get back to you for the puppyMarch 31, 2018 at 10:13 pm
I’d heard of St Lucia before but I actually had no clue where it was so had to google it haha. I’ll be adding it as a place to go when I visit the Caribbean at some point in the future. Thanks so much for the tips!March 31, 2018 at 10:17 pm

You are as young as you feel. The great thing about St.Lucia is that you can book a hotel which has an area just for the kids so you can have some adult time.April 2, 2018 at 6:09 pm
St Lucia looks absolutely beautiful I can’t even comprehend how much more beautiful it would look in reality! Like heaven on Earth!
