St Lucia stands apart from the rest of the Caribbean islands thanks to its varied landscape and diverse culture distinguished by its African, Indian, Caribbean, British, Spanish and French influences. With drop-dead-gorgeous bays, dense rainforest, expansive banana plantations and pretty hamlets, St Lucia is a gem in the crown of the Caribbean. Start your sailing holiday from Marigot Bay, a sheltered anchorage with new marina on the scenic west coast, just south of Castries and Cul de Sac Bay. Marigot Bay boasts the luxurious eco-friendly Marigot Bay Resort, assorted shops, restaurants and bars.
There are endless activities to enjoy during your St Lucia holiday. Hike or take a tram ride through the rainforest, visit the dormant volcano La Soufriere, experience a zip-line ride against the backdrop of the Pitons, soak in the mud beneath the sulphur springs or take a fascinating Rhythm of Rum tour. This sailing area includes the islands of St Vincent, Bequia, Mustique, Mayreau, and Tobago Cays – brilliant! Sailing in St Lucia is mainly line-of-sight, but it also offers the choice of longer and more challenging assages for the more adventurous sailor.
