Pigeon Island: Head to Pigeon Island north of Gros Islet to see St Lucia's historic side. The island's oldest houses and buildings are here and there are also gorgeous views of nearby Martinique from here. It's all simply stunning.
Sulphur Springs: Treat yourself to a natural spa day and head just south of Soufriere with your St Lucia car hire. Bring your swim suit and towel, this place is a treat!
Gros Piton: Climbing across the Gros Piton is a highlight for many active visitors to the island. The trail takes 2 hours of quite strenuous hiking to complete, plus another 1.5 hours to descent. Take a guide and lots of water.
