While St. Lucia’s natural assets are its most striking feature, a big part of the island’s appeal lies within its rich culture and heritage. St. Lucia is largely regarded as one of the most welcoming in the Caribbean, and a vibrant mix of African, French, and English cultural history influence day-to-day life.
Saint Lucian food is a feast for the senses. Where five star restaurants, Michelin starred chefs and roadside codfish stands serve fantastic fusion flavours, hearty home cooking and fine dining. For some of the island’s most coveted cuisine, head to Dasheene at Ladera. The panorama of the Pitons is laid before your eyes, as you savour classic St. Lucian dishes such as roast conch in a yam basket, with organic ingredients from nearby plantations.
The weather in St Lucia is typical of most Caribbean islands. There is a hot, tropical climate tempered by trade winds throughout most of the year with temperatures ranging from 21 to 32. The driest period is from December to May.
