St. Lucia….From the moment you arrive till the moment you depart, you will experience every level of romance you would expect on your honeymoon or for your destination wedding. With natural landscapes of gorgeous beaches, miles of unspoiled rainforest, the majestic Piton Mountains and natural waterfalls, St. Lucia promises to make your wedding and/or honeymoon one of the most memorable trips of your life.
Having received the "World's Leading Honeymoon Destination" award for 2002-2004, 2006-2009 and St. Lucia has once again received this award for 2010! This is because this island simply put, is one of the most romantic and beautiful islands you'll ever visit. St. Lucia is the sort of island that travelers to the Caribbean dream about--a small, lush tropical gem that is still relatively unknown. St. Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, with a shape that is said to resemble either a mango or an avocado.
If you have considered doing a destination wedding, St. Lucia is the perfect location! With many resorts fitting everyone’s budgets, saying “I DO” on this beautiful island will be everything you ever dreamed of. With only a 24 hour residency requirement, all of the necessary original documents to obtain a Special Marriage License, you can be husband and wife before you know it. Choosing your wedding location might be a bit more difficult than getting your marriage license. There are so many unique and spectacular locations for you to exchange or renew your vows, the choices are endless. From saying your vows on the beach at sunset, using the iconic Piton Mountains as a stunning backdrop, or possibly standing in the middle of one of the beautiful botanical gardens on island, the whole experience will keep you wanting to come back year after year to celebrate your anniversaries and even renew your vows.
Depending on what kind of activities you are looking to do while on the island, St. Lucia offers something for everyone. Do you like to hike and rock climb? Well, the famous Pitons, offer some of the best hiking and climbing on the island. The Gros Piton, which is stands at 2,461 foot is a challenge for the experienced climber and will definitely be an amazing climb. Formed by a volcanic eruption some 30 million years ago, The Pitons jet out from the deep blue Caribbean Sea and offer some of the best scenery you could ever imagine. Hike up along the volcano and see the active lava bubble from just yards away. Sit and relax in the warm mineral waters and experience a warm mud bath, which is so therapeutic.
In addition to the Pitons, the island has striking golden-sand beaches, where you can enjoy many activities such as windsurfing, boating, diving and snorkeling. You might even be lucky enough to swim with the turtles, which migrate to the island, or possibly even see the dolphins jumping and having fun. Other favorite activities on the island are horseback riding on the beach, golf, zip lining or taking a canopy tour through the rain forest, walking through the gardens, visiting the many local shops and restaurants, and even experience some of the fun local night spots!
As you can see, the island of St. Lucia will offer you everything you possibly can want. Speak to our St. Lucia Specialist who will guide you through all of your honeymoon and/or destination wedding planning.
