The Best Island Route Tours at Sandals Halcyon Beach

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

Rainforest Hike & Waterfall Safari

The best way to explore the natural beauty of the island of Saint Lucia is on a 4x4 Jeep ride! Ride along the seaside through the island’s banana fields, drink from a coconut, and sample a few local, tropical fruits along the way to St. Lucia’s highest peak, Morne Gimme. Enjoy a swim in a local waterfall and continue journeying to Anse La Raye, a sleepy fishing village to learn about local fishing culture before heading back to the resort.

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.

Cap Estate E-Bike Adventure

This 2.5 hour adventure tour is perfect for honeymooners looking to explore more of the lush and vibrant Caribbean culture. Start at the entrance of Cap Estate and journey to the stunning Atlantic Beach of Cas En Bas along the eastern coastline. Try some local exotic fruit on the beach before pedaling through some of the island’s most posh golf courses and neighborhoods — sporting some of the best panoramic views of the island. You can get an intense workout or just enjoy a leisurely ride on e-the bikes.

Sandals Halcyon Beach 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 Regency La Toc 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!
