Small is­land with lots to of­fer!

Tropical Traveller Magazine - - DATEBOOK -

St Lu­cia has so much to of­fer in the months of Jan­uary & Fe­bru­ary, so here are a few tips from the Trop­i­cal Trav­eller team, who rec­om­mend some of their favourite things to do on the is­land.

Week­ends are a good time to take a day out at Pi­geon Is­land Na­tional Land­mark, the park to the north of Rod­ney Bay which used to be an is­land but is now reached by road along the cause­way. Pay­ing the small fee is good value as the beaches are pris­tine and se­cluded, the grounds are full of mil­i­tary ru­ins and his­tor­i­cal in­for­ma­tion, and the view from the top of the fort is worth the short hike for the ex­er­cise and the photo op­por­tu­ni­ties. Grab a re­fresh­ing drink at Jambe De Bois and en­joy one of the best views of Rod­ney Bay and Re­duit Beach.

My new year’s res­o­lu­tion is to learn a new sport, so I’m look­ing at tak­ing up golf. The Saint Lu­cia Golf Club in Cap Es­tate is part of the at­trac­tion, as it is a beau­ti­ful course, and their staff of trained pro­fes­sion­als are able to teach you the va­ri­ety if shots needed to play a de­cent game. It’s a lot of fun, good ex­er­cise and needs prac­tice to master the tech­nique, but the 19th hole (i.e. the Club­house) is a great place to re­lax after a ses­sion, so I guess I’ll give it a try!

My hus­band and I will be plan­ning a spe­cial evening for Valen­tine’s Day in Fe­bru­ary, and in Saint Lu­cia there are plenty of ro­man­tic places to choose from. One of our favourite things to do is take a sun­set cruise on a cata­ma­ran, en­joy some cham­pagne or rum punch and the steel pan mu­sic in the back­ground. Out on the wa­ter, the sun­set is even more spec­tac­u­lar, and if you’re lucky you’ll see the green flash – at least that’s what my hus­band says! The best night out at the week­end is at Delir­ius in Rod­ney Bay. I love meet­ing my friends there on a Fri­day or Satur­day night! Some­times we grab a few bar snacks and a cock­tail or even din­ner be­fore the party re­ally gets go­ing. Once the DJ turns up the vol­ume, it’s danc­ing all night, and the crowd is al­ways a great mix of lo­cals and vis­i­tors. I rec­om­mend Delir­ius to ev­ery­one who likes a fun night out with a cool young vibe.
