Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium (formerly Beausejour Cricket Ground)
Hosts domestic matches for the Windward Islands cricket team.The stadium hosted the World Cup 2007 matches. Named after Darren Sammy, the captain of the West Indies side that won the World Twenty20 in 2016.
The first international match played at the renamed ground took place on 9 August 2016 when India played the West Indies as part of a four-match Test series.
St Lucia Jazz Festival
Cap Estate is also near the world-renowned Pigeon Island National Landmark; it host the annual St. Lucia Jazz Festival in May. Pigeon Island is well worth a visit at any time. The Landmark is a living museum with a great history. The attractions include:
- Ruins of military buildings used during the battles between the French and the British for the island of Saint Lucia.
- A restaurant featuring local cuisine
- Two beautiful beaches.
- A pub and restaurant with a historical theme.
- The lookout point at the top of Rodney Fort which gives a panoramic view of the Northwest coastline.
These iconic forested twin peaks rise out of the sea between Soufrière and Choiseul. Gros Piton and Petit Piton are beautiful to gaze upon. There are many vantage points from which to photograph these volcanic spires in the south west of St Lucia.
The more active travellers will want to hike the 771 metres (2,530 feet) to the top of Gros Piton.The local advice is to go with a guide and wear good walking boots. The trail is steep and uneven. Expect the return journey to take four to five hours and take plenty of water.
The climb is worth it for the breathtaking views from the top!
Diamond Falls Botanical Garden
Diamond Falls Botanical Garden is a 6-acre site. It is filled with vibrant flora, including hibiscus, ixora and heliconia. The Diamond Falls waterfall changes colours to suit the mixture of rainwater and volcanic minerals that flows down the falls. You can dip in the mineral baths, dine at the Old Mill & Waterwheel Restaurant, or explore the Soufrière Estate.
Travel Tip: There’s a great contrast between the north and south of St Lucia. Consider booking a week in Cap Maison and a week in Soufrière. Cap Maison pairs well with hotels in the southern part of St Lucia - such as Jade Mountain. Cap Maison will help with all the transfers – even the transfers between properties by boat or by road. This way guests can get a view of the whole island in 7 to 10 days.
Weather in St Lucia
The hurricane season is August, September or October. Apart from those months, anytime is a good time to visit St Lucia.
Spring into early summer is the best time to visit Saint Lucia - missing peak season and the annual rains.
Sea turtle hatching season (for the leatherback, hawksbill and green turtles) takes place from March to November.
If it’s the enormous humpback whale you want to see, then mid-June to November is the slot you are looking for.
Then there are those diehard divers who want to witness the spawning coral. Once a year, coral releases millions of packets of egg and sperm cells that look like a snowfall. We understand that this phenomenon is triggered by a perfect combination of the lunar cycle, sea temperature and sunset time, and lasts for only 45 minutes. Best advice is to contact Scuba St. Lucia.
Dry and hot from October to April prices higher.
Rainy season June to November but prices are lower (short torrential showers can happen and dry up quickly).
You can see colourful birds year-round, they’ll be easier to see and hear in dry weather and trails will be more accessible.
