St.Lucia is a gorgeous honeymoon island. Pigeon Island in the North is the most picturesque, sheltered, and paradise-like place on earth with its golden sand. For nature lover honeymooners, St. Lucia also has the Anse Cochon on the West Coast, which is a purely magnificent beach with a rain forest.
The all-inclusive accommodations, natural beauty, mountains, outdoor adventures, romantic sunsets, and warm weather make it an amazing honeymoon destination for all starry-eyed lovers.
St. Lucia Honeymoon Information
The all-inclusive resorts are the most popular for a St. Lucia honeymoon. From buffets, swim-up bars, private beaches, cottage-style rooms, and innovation villas; they have it all under one roof. Throw in the botanical gardens, sulphur springs, waterfalls, and lush rain forests, and you have paradise on earth.
The culture on St. Lucia is a fusion of the African, English, and French heritage. While the official language is English, a dialect of French Patois, Kreole remains the unofficially common language. Typically, the local diet here features starches, animal protein (content varying by location), and very little green vegetables, all this a true depiction of their plantation past.
Best Time to Visit St. Lucia
From early May to early June are the best months for a St. Lucia honeymoon. This way, honeymooners escape the winters, crowds, and high prices and also manage to have a great time before the rains start sneaking in. The mountains, although scenic, bring a higher downpour each year in St. Lucia as compared to the other Caribbean Islands.
From December to April, the weather here is dry and sunny, but this adds an inconvenience because you find more crowds and higher prices. Therefore, for budget travelers, this is not an ideal time. If you are planning a winter honeymoon, January would be the best time to honeymoon in St. Lucia.
June to November is the monsoon season but the island suffers infrequent hurricanes.
