St Lucia Yacht Charter Guide
St Lucia is said to have the warm and loving yet wild and free nature of the woman that the island was named after. Stepping ashore onto land that may be the most beautiful in the Caribbean, you will understand why all who visit this postcard perfect destination are captivated. The small island, located in the Windward Islands, offers something for everyone, from hiking dramatic volcanic landscapes or exploring historical sites, to dining in excellent restaurants and watching the pink Caribbean sunset from the deck of your private yacht, rum cocktail in hand. A luxury superyacht charter is the ideal way to experience St Lucia – anchor in picturesque bays and harbors, step ashore to hike the trails through the mountains lined with ginger flowers.
Key Cruising Areas: The Windward Islands are one of the best sailing destinations in the world. Sailing south from St Lucia you can follow the archipelago of St Vincent, where islets sprinkled across the glittering waters are full of secluded bays to explore.
Don’t Miss: The tropical forests of the island are full of hiking trails and scenic walks, and exploring the tropical landscapes by foot is a must. For an easy walk with incredible views, follow the Tet Paul Nature Trail to look out over the Pitons. For a unique hike, follow the Soufriére trail that takes you into the crater of the volcano.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Rodney Bay is an ideal stop for a superyacht charter, with boutique shopping and excellent restaurants nearby. Book a table at Jacques for an elegant, waterfront location with beautiful gardens and sample the French and Caribbean creations of Chef Jacques. Treat yourself to his famous coco rum crème brulee.
Local Culture: The cuisine, music and heritage of St Lucia are alive in every aspect of island life. To learn about the culture, visit the Folk Museum, or for those with an interest in history explore the ruins of La Toc and Mourne batteries, with beautiful views back over the coves. For a feel of present day culture, sail around to Gros Islet on a Friday night to experience a true Caribbean street party.
Best Beach: On the north of the Island, the white sands of Pigeon Island stretch for miles, dotted with thatched umbrellas. Perfect for sunbathing there is also a museum, restaurants, and a rum bar beneath the fort.
IYC recommends: Arrange a private tour of the Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens. Award winning tropical gardens create a magical walk through unusual flora, across wooden bridges, and past waterfalls and natural hot springs. Finish a leisurely afternoon in the gardens’ spa, treat your skin to a dip in the mud baths then relax in a private mineral bath.
