Best Things To Do in St. Lucia

Much of St. Lucia's activity happens on the west coast and specifically, in the Soufrière area. That's where you'll find the iconic Pitons that visitors like to climb, or Mount Soufrière, the pungent drive-in volcano that emits sulfurous gas as opposed to lava. Nearby, honeymooners like to snorkel in the transparent waters of Anse Chastanet. There's also plenty to do farther north in the Rodney Bay area. That's where you'll find the lively Reduit Beach and Pigeon Island National Park.
