by / Friday, 27 January 2017 / Published in Activities, Blog, General

Coconut Bay is only one of the highlights that St. Lucia has to offer. Our excursions include several other hot spots in the area, including these top ten must-see places.

Dennery Waterfall

Known alternately as Sault Falls or Errand Falls, this scenic cascade falls nearly 20 metres into a picturesque pool. The falls are easily accessible via a short trail, and those who don’t mind getting their feet wet can cross the river for a closer look.

Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens

This site covers six stunning acres and highlights the best of St. Lucia’s natural beauty. You’ll find the Diamond Falls Waterfall, hot mineral springs, cultivated gardens, and nature trails. Lush and blooming in every season, this is one of the most popular tourist spots on the island.

Piton Falls

The Piton Falls drop over 9 metres into a bathing pool that’s a popular spot for hikers to take a quick dip. Conveniently located near Soufriere, the falls are easily accessible via a short hike.

Sulphur Springs

Sulphur Springs Park is home to the only drive-in volcano in the Caribbean. This is the most active geothermal spot in the Lesser Antilles, complete with bubbling hot springs, rich mud pools, and sulphur streams. Guided tours last about 30 minutes.


Laborie is a quaint village where you can still hear conch shells heralding the fisherman as they arrive with the day’s catch. This is an ideal spot for tasting the local Creole flavour of St. Lucia.


Another small St. Lucian town, Choiseul is best known for its artisans. Visit for one-of-a-kind local crafts like hand woven baskets or stunning grass place mats.


Soufriere is at the heart of St. Lucia, sitting just beneath the majestic Pitons. Colourful storefronts and colonial architecture make this a charming spot for a stroll.

Cape Moule a Chique

Cape Moule a Chique is dominated by a lighthouse that stands 227 metres above the water. From the peninsula, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the coast.


The capital city of St. Lucia, Castries features an abundance of markets with eye-catching wares. Enjoy Creole food at the Pink Plantation House, or go the Coal Pot for Caribbean fare.

Des Cartier Rainforest Reserve

Take in rich tropical flora and fauna at this reserve. Des Cartier is a popular spot for viewing the St. Lucian Parrot.

Coconut Bay’s shuttles offer easy access to these sites and many others both on private tours and as part of our guided excursions around St. Lucia. Book yours now.
