Visit Some Splendid Places with Cheap Holidays to St Lucia

by Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals

There has been a steady increase in the number of tourists visiting St Lucia over the years, and for some good reasons. This island country located in the Caribbean has vast expanses of enchanting natural beauty, offers some great opportunities to indulge in exciting outdoor activities, and has a rich heritage that's influenced by African, English, French, and East Indian cultures. While holidaying in this Caribbean island destination, you'll also get the chance to be a part of some interesting cultural festivals.

St Lucia experiences a pleasant, breezy weather from December to April with favourable temperatures for sightseeing and spending some quality time on the beaches. This is also a peak tourist season in the country, which increases the room rates of hotels to a great extent. If you're fine with enjoying your St Lucia holidays during the hurricane season from July to November, you'll be rewarded with some great discounts on your hotel accommodation. The months of May and June are the best times to visit St Lucia as the climate is quite pleasant and there are lesser crowds of tourists. If you book your hotel stays a few months in advance, you can secure the best discounts on your accommodation.

When you're in St Lucia, don't miss the Pitons. They are the majestic twin peaks of this island destination; one known as 'Gros Piton' or the large Piton and the other is 'Petit Piton' or the small Piton. Both these peaks are a part of the Pitons Management Area, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The two peaks were formed about 300,000 years ago by volcanic activity. Most of the tourists enjoying their cheap holidays to St Lucia choose to view them from a distance and admire the scenic beauty, as they are quite difficult to climb. If you're an experienced diver, you can explore the marine area of these peaks and discover some amazing coral reefs.

Among the activities you'll like to indulge in during your cheap St Lucia holidays are diving and snorkelling. The best place for these two activities is the Anse Chastanet coral reef, which is home to a vast coral ecosystem harbouring a variety of marine species. Once you get above the surface, you can explore the sheltered beach nearby. If you wish to take a stroll or relax on a beach that's almost secluded, get to the Anse Mamin. This serene beach is located within a walking distance of about 10 minutes from Anse Chastanet.

Yet another popular tourist spot is the Morne Coubaril Estate, which overlooks the Soufriere Bay and resembles a traditional village. There are guided tours available for taking you to the plantation as well as the tropical gardens of this area. You can also enjoy zip-lining during your visit to this estate and savour some delicious Creole treats at the restaurant of the plantation. Another fabulous estate is the Soufriere Estate, which gives you the opportunity to visit the spectacular Diamond Falls area. As you begin exploring the surroundings, you’ll come across some healing hot springs, beautiful gardens, and an awe-inspiring waterfall.
