The five best day trips in Saint Lucia

Ditch the hotel for the day and discover the best things to see and do around the island

Time Out in association with British Airways

Explore the island, topless

If you’ve ever wondered what a sequel to ‘The Italian Job’ set in the Caribbean might look like, sign-up for an all-island tour with Mini Cooper Road Trip. Joining a convoy of soft-top Minis, this nine-hour tour serves up a jam-packed itinerary of the island’s biggest attractions.

Sail along the scenic coastline

Carnival Sailing’s catamarans come out of Ganter’s Bay in the north-west and head down the west coast, taking in views of the fishing villages of Anse La Raye and Canaries before heading to Soufrière. Here, you can take in the splendour of the Pitons – or just chill on deck with something rum-laced.


Admire the underwater beauty

Saint Lucia is not just beautiful on the surface – dive in! A Padi 5* Resort Dive Centre, Scuba Steve’s Diving caters to beginners, experienced divers or those aiming for certification. Explore Saint Lucia’s coral reefs, where turtles, tropical fish and more await.

Get on your bike

Anse Mamin plantation includes eight miles of jungle bicycle trails, carefully curated to offer a combination of historical remains and untouched tropical beauty. Hop on a mountain bike with Bike St Lucia and you’ll soon progress from the skills training course to the far more challenging Tinker’s Trail.


Paddle the island’s waterways

Most waterbound tours of Saint Lucia will take you around the coast. DFH Kayaking explores the interior waterways, including the mangroves that are vital to the island's ecology. You can hit the Roseau River, Anse Cochon, and Marigot Bay, and hop out of the boat whenever you feel like it, for snorkelling and swimming.
