St. Lucia is referred to as “Helen of the West indies.” It is the perfect nickname for this lush mountainside island that’s sultry and seductive as her namesake. To know St. Lucia is to love her. Here are some tips on making her acquaintance.
See The Pitons. The pitons are precipitous, transformed by the sun’s changing rays- now craggy-faced, beckoned with emerald sage and olive vegetation that tries in vain to scale their heights. When night comes, the sky is a scintillating multitude of stars cast across an indigo velvet tapestry, except where the Pitons blot themselves out in twin peaked silhouettes of India ink.
Ride a Chairlift. Here the winds whisper. Hear the birds call out to each other while you have orchestra seats dangling from a cable on a chairlift, swinging gently in the fifth level of the rainforest, two hundred feet above a murmuring stream.
Pilgrimage to a Church. The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Castries is spiritual. It sports an Italianate clock tower, A Victorian variation on a Romanesque design. Find solace with a congregation of elderly local women, kerchiefs casting shadows over their seamed faces.
Cuddle Up. St. Lucia is rated one of the world’s top honeymoon destinations, year after year. Treat yourself to a massage at Rendezvous; sip cocktails in your private Jacuzzi ten steps from the beach staring at voluptuous mountains clad in mist. Stay at the LaToc Regency, a Sandals resort known for beauty and romance with your private butler to cater to your every whim and desire.
Eat, Eat, Eat! All greenheart and stone and island artwork, Ladera’s Dasheen Restaurant boasts eagle-eye views of the Pitons. There you will find chef Orlandon Satchell, recently seconded to teach at London’s Cordon Bleau.
You will find comparable great food and the same beautiful views at Rainforest Hideaway. Snugged down in a stand of mangrove, Rainforest is basically a pier with Indonesian ambiance and lush surroundings.
While in St. Lucia you can also soak up some rays, drop into a volcano, or just catch up on some much needed rest… all phenomenal items to do while vacationing on such a beautiful destination you are surely not to forget anytime soon.
