This year we decided to try somewhere new for our yearly summer trip and decided to check out St. Lucia. If you don’t know where St. Lucia is, it is located in the West Indies the eastern Caribbean Sea.If you plan on traveling to this beautiful island I would suggest you stay at least for 10 days because our stay was way too short to see everything.
When is the best time to travel to St. Lucia?
The peak season is typically during December- April when visitors want to escape the winter weather. But if you want to go at a time where it is less crowded you could look into going towards the end of August, but this is during hurricane season, so keep that in mind when planning.
What to bring with you to St. Lucia:
- Bathing suits
- Bug spray
- Casual Clothing
- Snorkeling gear if you have it
- Hiking shoes
Where we stayed in St. Lucia:
We stayed at the Windjammer Landing all inclusive resort in a 2 bedroom villa. Their 2 bedroom villa will sleep up to 15 people and is perfect for traveling with a group or with a family. This resort is tucked away along the cobalt Caribbean Sea, with a Mediterranean vibe, luxury amenities, and great hospitality. They have 5 different restaurants throughout the resort, and you will never feel limited on what to eat while staying here.
What we did while staying at the Windjammer Landing:
One of the highlights of our trip, was having a private cooking class with Chef Howard and Chef Miguel in the privacy of our own villa. We first went to the Castries market to pick up our fresh ingredients and they taught us about their local produce and then we headed back to the room and did our cooking class.
Having a romantic sunset dinner for two is a must while staying at the Windjammer Landing. We enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal and delicious drinks.
Places we ate in St. Lucia:
- Spinnakers: this restaurant is right on Reduit beach, so you can enjoy some time on the beach and then walk up to enjoy your lunch.
- Keylargo: If you are in the mood for Italian food and good wood fire pizza, then this place is a must!
- Buzz: This place was like a magical garden at night, they have a neat indoor/outdoor concept and delicious seafood. If you do go here be sure to order their crack bread for an appetizer, the name fits it 100%.
