When it comes to tropical escapes and romantic getaways, there’s no better destination than St. Lucia.
I celebrated my Fifth Anniversary in St. Lucia with my husband and it’s one of our favorite islands in the Caribbean!
The combination of lush landscapes, natural beauty, and luxury resorts will easily have you thinking you could be in Hawaii.
But in St. Lucia, not only are you closer to home in the Caribbean, you’re sure to have just as stunning of an experience with high-class service and memories to last a lifetime.
With so much to love about St. Lucia, here are the top five reasons why the picturesque island is known as the Hawaii of the Caribbean.
1. Lush and Rugged Mountains
One of the most iconic features of both Hawaii and St. Lucia is its rugged mountains.
St. Lucia’s trademark Pitons are a sight to see from anywhere on the island or even from a distance on a sunset cruise.
Much like Hawaii, the cliffs offer spectacular views as well as prime hiking opportunities for the more adventurous.
2. Unique Volcanoes
No tropical destination is complete without a volcano, and St. Lucia doesn’t disappoint.
With the first drive-in volcano, Soufriere Volcano and the surrounding area provides visitors with an exciting experience, including canopy tours, 4×4 adventures, hot springs, and more.
3. Exotic Beaches
St. Lucia boasts both postcard-perfect white sand and black sand beaches.
Due to the island’s volcanic makeup, you’ll be able to have the best of both worlds when it comes to visiting different types of tropical beaches all on the same trip.
4. Top Rate Honeymoon Destination
It’s no surprise that St. Lucia is rated as one of the best honeymoon destinations and one of the most popular Caribbean wedding destinations.
With no shortage of luxury resorts offering overwater bungalows, secluded villas, infinity pools, butler service, and private beach access, there’s no better place to celebrate romance than in paradise itself.
5. Welcoming Spirit
Those familiar with Hawaii will know that the island exudes a welcoming spirit.
In St. Lucia, you’ll be greeted with just as warm of a welcome and with world-class hospitality that will have you never wanting to leave!
