Zen out at Sugar beach, A Viceroy Resort

Megayachts around the world make a beeline to the private marina at this 124-room resort. Make like a Kardashian and charter a private boat for a cruise to Castries harbor at sunset – or channel your inner Jack Sparrow and take the helm on a full-day sailing course.

Even if you’re not a guest, changes are you can still sweet-talk your way into a reservation for a table beside the infinity pool at the Jade Mountain Club, or arrange a private dinner (stargazing optional) on the rooftop Celestial Terrace.
Go “flightseeing” with St. Lucia Helicopters
Take to the skies for aerial views of the island’s sights from the co-pilot’s seat, baller style, with St. Lucia Helicopters. Glide over fishing villages, waterfalls, Soufriere volcano and Rodney Bay.
Explore the Pitons with a private guide
Hike up the 3,000-foot Gros Piton on a five-hour trek with Real St. Lucia Tours, or stroll the less strenuous but equally scenic Tet Paul Nature Trail. You’ll feel at arm’s length from the twin peaks as you climb trail’s “stairway to heaven.”
