No seafarer ever forgets their first approach to Saint Lucia on a superyacht charter: dramatic tree-veiled peaks rise above turquoise waters, creating a truly breathtaking spectacle. Scenic and pristine, Saint Lucia is one of the most magnificent Caribbean yacht charter destinations, offering sugar-white beaches that are bordered by thick tropical rainforests. As the island was undamaged during the hurricane season, Saint Lucia offers a superb luxury yachting haven for the winter of 2017/18.
A Caribbean Dream: Waterfalls, Coral Reefs, and Powder-Soft Beaches
On a Windward Islands yacht charter in Saint Lucia your charter party can explore stunning waterfalls hidden deep in the rainforest, and bathe in mineral rich pools of ethereal blues. Toraille Waterfall is one such spot; gushing water showers bathers in a flora-filled hollow.
Spend happy days lazing about on the island’s spectacular beaches, reading a book in a hammock, or swimming by your chartered superyacht. There is an abundance of picturesque beaches from which to choose in Saint Lucia: Grand Anse Saint Lucia is alluringly deserted and attracts plenty of turtles, while Malgretoute beach enjoys crystal clear water and a stunning backdrop of the forested Pitons.
If you’re in the mood for snorkelling or diving, Anse l’Ivrogne offers a magnificent drop-off of more than 2,000 feet just offshore, while Anse Cochon Beach also has great marine life and is only accessible by boat. Fishing enthusiasts will be in heaven in Saint Lucia, with world-class fishing in the deep waters just off the coast.
Jungle adventures also await charter parties in Saint Lucia. The emerald isle offers zip lining through the canopy, a rainforest tram ride, or even quad biking experiences through the mountains, villages, and banana plantations that dot the island. No Saint Lucia yacht charter would be complete without a visit to La Soufriere volcano – a dormant volcano where you can drive through the crater or bathe in the nearby mud pools, which are known for their therapeutic qualities.
When your adventuring is done, it’s time to return to the beautiful Rodney Bay Marina or Marigot Bay Marina to enjoy the refined pleasures of Saint Lucia.
Saint Lucia’s Food and Cocktail Scene
Saint Lucia’s food scene is a melting pot of international influences that come together to create a unique cuisine.
On charter you might like to dine by the beach at the pretty village of Marigot, or enjoy one of the tiny waterfront bars that line Gros Inlet. If you’re looking for an elegant affair, The Cliff at Cap offers a stunning cliff-top bar for evening cocktails, and a fine dining restaurant with superb views.
Rainforest Hideaway is also one of the island’s culinary highlights. Here, you’ll dine at tables on the deck over the water, while live jazz music floats on the warm night air. Dasheene, meanwhile, offers wonderful views and upmarket local dishes, while Boucan is the most innovative restaurant on Saint Lucia, with an upscale menu that is inspired by the local cocoa plant.
To finish the evening, try Elena’s ice-cream parlour near Rodney Bay Marina, or head to the lively street party that is held every week at Gros Islet, where people dance in the streets to the sound of a steel band and the smell of barbequed food fills the air.
Whether you’re looking for a blissful beach escape, jungle fun, or delicious dining, Saint Lucia is the perfect Caribbean yacht charter destination. And with Saint Vincent and the Grenadines just nearby, you can easily include the stunning islands of Bequia, Mustique, and Saint Vincent on your Saint Lucia yacht charter itinerary.
