The Best Island Route Tours at Sandals Grande St. Lucian

Sandals Grande St. Lucian offers honeymooners dozens of local excursions to choose from to explore the island country of St. Lucia. Here are our top Advisor-picked recommendations:

Northern St. Lucia Buggy Adventure

Discover the diverse beauty of St. Lucia’s lush rainforest and palm-fringed beaches as you drive your own on- and off-road buggy through northern St. Lucia. Cruise through Cap Estate, the “Beverly Hills of Saint Lucia” and the vibrant streets of Rodney Bay. Spend time at Cas en Bas beach learning about Saint Lucian life and culture, and ascend the peaks of Morne Citron and Point Hardy in the biggy for the best panoramic views of the island!

Soufriere Adventure Cruise

This 7 hour water adventure begins with a light breakfast on board as you sail by quaint fishing villages and head to the majestic Pitons, the crown jewel of Saint Lucia. After enjoying an authentic creole lunch, the adventure continues in the afternoon at the Sulphur Springs, where honeymooners can enjoy a romantic and mineral-rich mud bath. Here, guests can also take a dip at Toraille Waterfalls. Conclude your day at sea with a snorkel session over a protected reef and photo op at Marigot Bay.

Gros Piton Hike from Castries/Vieux Fort

The Pitons are the crown jewel of St. Lucia and are a must-see during your honeymoon! Towering 3,000 feet above sea level, Gros Piton and its twin peak, Petit Piton, can be seen from most areas surrounding the island. However, what better way to enjoy the best views than by hiking to the top! This guided hike will bring you up the jungle-covered mountainside to experience the once-in-a-lifetime views of Gros Piton from high above.

Sandals Grande St. Lucian Packing Guide

For your honeymoon in Saint Lucia, the most important thing you’ll need to pack is a passport! Not only is Saint Lucia a Caribbean island, it is an independent country.

Additionally, pack essentials for several hours in the sun, plenty of sunscreen that is SPF 25 or higher. We also recommend 2-3 swimsuits, since you’ll be at the beach or resort pools almost every day. Include some type of cover-up also, such as an oversized t-shirt and hat. Water shoes would be a great addition to your St. Lucia packing list so you can comfortably explore the waterfalls and natural island terrain. For your excursions into the jungle, you will also want a pair of sneakers and athleisure clothing. Lightweight fabrics you can layer will also be key for long days in the sun. Think: linen shorts and 3-4 cotton tank tops or t-shirts.

Once the sun sets, be prepared with a little more formal attire, including closed-toes or heeled shoes. Also be sure to pack 3-4 dinner outfits that would fit the resort evening attire dress code at some of Sandals Grande St. Lucian restaurants, such as collared shirts and slacks for men and sundresses for women. Don’t forget a few sets of PJs, and essential medications and toiletries, although many of the Sandals bathrooms will provide the basics for honeymooners to help themselves to!
