Lush mountains cover the already naturally beautiful landscape of St. Lucia as a steaming sulfur volcano looms overhead. Vast rainforests and stunning white and black sand beaches cover the island. As a high-end resort destination, St. Lucia is perfect for a multitude of activities, such as mountain biking, snorkeling, birdwatching, kite sailing, and diving. Witness the charm in the quiet, undeveloped areas of the island, or stay in one of the amazing luxury resorts on-site. Whatever your desire, let Brownell’s luxury specialists bring it to life!

Activities greatly depend on where you are staying. It is not a quick trip from the north of the island to the south. Typically, you visit one or the other for a day trip during your stay. The north side has several great restaurants and dining options within walking distance of many water sports (i.e., catamaran cruises, night sails, and golf). The island’s south side is where all the historical plantations are located. Waterfalls, volcano visits, and the famed Pitons are located on the island’s southern portion.
No! St. Lucia is so far south in the Windward Islands that it is rarely impacted by hurricanes and tropical storms. In fact, in the last 15 years, only two hurricanes have impacted the island. Not only are the hotels open, but they are usually fully operational, too—meaning that all of their restaurants, bars, and pools will be open.
Yes! Your Brownell advisor can arrange for you to visit Sulpher Springs and drive through the volcano. We do recommend wearing a black (or dark) bathing suit, as the clay from the Sulpher springs can stain lighter colors. The water here is very warm, and travelers often enjoy bathing themselves and smearing the sumptuous clay over their skin.
