St. Lucia, Helen of the West Indies
How about some summer fun in the Caribbean sun on the isle of St. Lucia! The island boasts lush tropical forests, majestic mountain twin peaks, refreshing waterfalls, beautiful beaches, and extraordinary hiking, all surrounded by stunning crystalline water which offers spectacular diving!
A hidden gem, St. Lucia is part of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, located between Martinique and St. Vincent and Barbados in the Caribbean. The natural bounty of St. Lucia will enchant you with its ancient volcano, serene rainforests and crystal-clear waters. The twin peaks of Les Pitons, the island’s renowned landmark, provides a stunning backdrop for your tropical escape into a natural haven.
You’ll dive in the heart of St. Lucia’s very best diving. Diving through the Anse Chastanet Reef, vested as a marine reserve sanctuary in 1995 teeming with vibrant, aquatic life. The reef starts just 10 yards beyond the water’s edge. The reef’s remarkable ecosystem offers an amazing profusion of unusual tropical marine life which is home to more than 150 different species of fish.
In the shallow areas be sure to look for peacock flounders, octopus, needle fish, and turtles. Drop down a little deeper to explore the dense coral growth to spot puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters, and even sea horses. There are a variety of dive sites for all skill levels and many sites are especially great for macro photographers. We’ll partner with Scuba St. Lucia, a PADI 5 Star Dive Operation, which is perfectly set-up for both beach and boat dives and offers carefree gear storage.
Anse Chastanet Resort
When you aren’t diving, you’ll be exploring, relaxing, and dining at the award-winning, Anse Chastanet Resort. The estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches and the Resort has everything you’d wish for and more with restaurants, bars, boutiques, an art gallery, spa, as well as, bike and watersports facilities.
