The magnificent duo of volcanic peaks that tower above St Lucia, the Pitons, form the staggering backdrop of the luxurious Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort
, which will be your home while on this beautiful island. With a huge stretch of white sand beach right on its doorstep, this tucked-away resort is surrounded on all sides by magnificent scenery, and is a secluded hideaway engulfed by the Caribbean at its most naturally pristine.
Sugar Beach has some superb restaurants and an impressive spa, and with excellent facilities for waterskiing, windsurfing and sailing, it offers plenty for those for whom the ocean is a playground. In the crystal-clear waters, divers can explore wrecks and get up close and personal with the resident turtles.
Elsewhere on the island, be sure to sample the endless beaches, stroll the bustling harbour of Castries or conquer the Soufriere volcano, where you can bathe in the mud pools of the world’s only ‘drive-in’ volcanic crater. Head to a small fishing village 45 minutes from Sugar Beach, where the fishermen bring their catch straight from the boats, and you can enjoy a barbecue of fresh fish right on the beach. Tucking in to octopus, conch, tuna and lobster with the locals will give you a true taste of Caribbean life.
After five nights here, you’ll be transferred to the airport for your short flight from lush St Lucia to chic, sleek Antigua.
