Top 10 Things To Do In St. Lucia

1. Four wheel on the black sand beach
It's hard to tell in the photos but it really was black sand. This was seriously such a cool experience, I believe there's only 2 beaches like it in the world - a once in a lifetime experience. The tour guide took us on 2 different beaches, through rivers, into the jungle with steep hills, stopped to show us fruit trees and gave us a little history lesson too. My husband even stopped and climbed up a tree to get fruit on our way back! I drove to the beach and then hopped on my husband's with him and rode on the back on our way back.

2. Hot springs mud bath
This was really different from anything I've ever done. At first I was iffy on it, not sure I wanted to participate but I figured YOLO (do people still say that anymore? Jeeze I feel old) lol! But its all natural and makes your skin SUPER soft. I would highly recommend wearing a bathing suit you don't really care about because it will definitely stain - that's why we're all wearing crazy things! Haha. These were all cheap swimsuits we picked up from a local shop on our way there.

3. Sunset Catamaran Cruise
I will say off the bat, the boat was a lot smaller than I expected but it was very initiate. The back of the boat has a netted bottom to lay on and in the front of the boat there is a seating area and indoor with food and drinks. It was very relaxing and a beautiful sight.

4. Get a massage with a view
This was picture perfect, literally. It was a cabana ocean front with a view of a small islet. The quality of the massage was great, the sound of the ocean and the breeze was perfect. It made me not want to get an indoor massage ever again lol.

5. Relax in the lazy river 
What better way to enjoy a vacation than float down a lazy river with a drink in your hand? Sign me up! This was super relaxing, we actually did this a few times we were there. If you like to relax on vacation instead of go-go-go, then this is for you!

6. Waterfalls
After the hot springs mud bath, our tour guide took us to this beautiful waterfall to rinse off. It's even pretty to just look at. The water was super cold but because it was so hot and sweaty, it was really refreshing. I actually wanted to stay here longer than we actually did. But definitely a sight to see!

7. See the Pitons
Talk about a sight to see! I took this photo on our four wheeling adventure right before my phone died! It's probably my favorite photo. There's actually 2 Pitons, a big one and a small one and many places you can see them from the island - or if you're adventurous enough and want a work out, you can climb up it. I'm more of an "I'll-look-at-it" type of girl. Haha.

8. Have fun on the water slides or at the swim up bar
Having fun is what vacation is all about! Don't want to float in a pool? Rip down the water slides! There is a 2nd level that is not pictured of larger slides. The top of the green slide is actually a pool you land in from the other slides. We had a blast on these with both my parents and his siblings. Then of course there is the swim up bar which had great drinks.

9. Try a local bar & the local alcohol
Their local beer is "Piton" named after the 2 famous Pitons. They also had a wine cooler which was actually really good. Definitely my favorite. The Admiral Rodney is distilled in St. Lucia and was a recommendation from one of the bar tenders. My husband liked it! The other photos are from a local bar that our four wheeling tour guide took us to. It was pretty dark and didn't look like there was any electricity, just the light from the windows and there were animals (chickens, ducks, dogs) running around which was pretty cool.

10. Paintball
This last one unfortunately I don't have photos of as we didn't have time to unfortunately but this is definitely on our list to do next time!

The resort offered so many other excursions, activities and tours but being there for 8 days was just not enough! If you're looking for zip lining and tours, scuba diving and fishing, they've seriously got it all available! Tell 'em Shelby sent you ;) haha.
