3. So many things to do!
If you opt for a St. Lucia honeymoon, then you're in for a trip of a lifetime. With so many things to do on the island, you and your partner will never run out of activities. St. Lucia has the finest all-inclusive resorts, but we've already talked about them above, so now let's talk about activities outside the resorts -- for when you're itching to explore.
If the divine green peaks interest you, set out for hiking with your partner. Alternatively, you can go horse riding or zipline through the magnificent trees and feel the air rushing against your face as you do. Even better, the Enbos Saut waterfall trail is also open for visitors! There is also a fishing village named Soufriere, where you can spend a day full of excitement and exploration. Some other activities include partying with the locals, getting a mud bath, chasing waterfalls, taking boat trips, tasting rum, and so much more! See, there are so many things you can do!
4. The Piton Mountains
A part of St. Lucia's natural topography for more than 300,000 years, the Piton Mountains are a magical sight that will leave you mesmerized for a lifetime. These twin peaks tower over the fishing village Soufriere and tops as the best place to view the Pitons from. Undoubtedly, this beautiful scenery is just the place to be as a newly wedded couple.
5. Diverse Culture
Apart from having all-inclusive accommodations, botanical gardens, sulfur springs, rain forests, etc., St. Lucia also has a diverse cultural heritage. It is a sweet fusion of African, English, and French culture. Although the official language is English, the commonly spoken language is a dialect of French Patois, Kreole. Reflecting on the plantation past, the local food diet on St. Lucia mainly consists of starches, animal protein, and small portions of green vegetables.
Did it get your attention as a romantic experience when we said chase waterfalls above? Well, St. Lucia will let you make countless memories doing just that with the person you love! Especially the Enbos Sait Waterfall is bound to make you fall in love with nature all over again.
Beaches with warm weather! Oh yes, this is where the hot girl summer vibes can kick in with full blast, ladies. The St. Lucia coastline is filled with gorgeous and breathtaking beaches, but three of them particularly stand out.
First, the Pigeon Island in the North of the Island is the most picturesque and heavenly beach, with the golden sand enhancing the beauty. Second, there's the unspoiled Anse Cochon Beach, which has a rainforest background that multiplies the heavenly feeling to three thousand. On this beach, you can go snorkeling or enjoy the experience of a kayak. The third one is Anse des Pitons, which has silver sand imported from Guyana, along with a magnificent view of the twin Piton peaks.

We mean the botanical gardens, waterfalls, sulfur springs, and everything nature-y! The sceneries and romantic sunsets result in a soothing and memorable honeymoon straight out of the movies, if you ask us.
