How to Spend 3 Days in St. Lucia

How to Spend 3 Days in St. Lucia

St. Lucia is an ideal getaway for travelers wanting to experience the less touristy side of the Caribbean. With three days on the island, you can enjoy adventure on land and at sea while getting a taste of the history and culture that make St. Lucia irresistible. Here’s how to make the most of your time.

Day 1: Beaches and cruises

St. Lucia is surrounded by the Caribbean’s characteristic white beaches, turquoise waters, and long harbors—and choices abound for a day of sun, sand, and sea. Sail along the coast aboard a catamaran, stopping by attractions such as Sulphur Springs and Diamond Botanical Gardens—or charter a private speedboat for some beach-hopping. For a little relaxation and a little adventure, spend a morning on the beach followed by an afternoon of scuba diving, snorkeling, sea trekking, whale watching, or deep sea fishing. Wrap up your day on the water with rum cocktails and seafood at a toes-in-the-sand beach bar.

Day 2: Nature and island adventures

St. Lucia is blessed with some of the best natural scenery in the Caribbean, so tear yourself away from the water for a day on solid ground. Hike into the heart of the rain forest along the Gros Piton Nature Trail, or see the canopy from a higher perspective on a ziplining tour of the island. Those who prefer a tamer adventure can opt to ride the aerial tram for a chance to spot endangered Jacquot parrots and other wildlife. When you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the capital city of Castries and sample breadfruit, cassava bread, cocoa tea, spiced rum, and other local specialties on a food tour. 

Day 3: Cultural explorations

For such a small island, St. Lucia packs a big cultural punch. Start the day with an island tour to learn about the local history and culture as you explore sights such as Pigeon Island National Landmark, Soufrière, Rodney Bay, Marigot Bay, and the Morne Coubaril Estate. If the timing is right, end your trip with a beloved island tradition: a Friday night street party often called a jump-up or fish fry. Rub elbows with the locals, sampling barbecued meats and fresh seafood, sipping on rum punch, and dancing to the sounds of reggae, steel band, and calypso music.
