Cheap flights from Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia is a British Commonwealth island country lying between the Caribbean Sea and north Atlantic Ocean. Its total land area is 617 square kilometres, and as of 2010 the population was at around 174,000. Saint Lucia is a popular tourist destination thanks to its tropical weather, picturesque scenery, countless beaches and resorts, and lots of natural attractions. The capital is Castries, where most tourists spend their time on Saint Lucia, but other popular places to go are Soufrière, Marigot Bay, and Gros Islet.

Where to go

Saint Lucia Jazz Festival - Saint Lucia has many cultural festivals such as La Rose and La Marguerite, but the biggest festival is the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival. This is an annual event that features both local and international musicians who play not only jazz music but also Calypso and R&B. Many world-famous artists have performed at the event, including Ne-Yo, John Legend, Elton John, Boyz II Men, and Santana.

St. Lucia Botanical Gardens - The St. Lucia Botanical Gardens is the oldest botanical garden on the island. It can be found on the town of Soufrière. The Gardens are also known as Diamond Botanical Gardens, as it is home of the Diamond Waterfall.

Anse Chastanet - To the north of Soufrière is a beach called Anse Chastanet. The Anse Chastanet Marine reserve is noted for excellent snorkelling and scuba diving. Although the beach facilities are managed by the private Anse Chastanet Resort, it is open to public access.

Sulphur Springs - To the south of Soufrière is the Sulphur Springs. As one might guess, these are hot springs. Swimming in the pool with the hot water is allowed, but this depends on the entrance price paid per visitor. Note that Saint Lucia has a dual pricing discrimination policy, meaning non-Saint Lucians generally have to pay about four times than the locals do. Still, the experience of taking a dip in Sulphur Springs is worth the price. The hot springs in Saint Lucia are also called the "world's only drive-in volcano", meaning one can literally drive up to the edge of the springs.

There's a reason why Barbados is one of the most popular (if not the most) islands in the Caribbean, which you'll find out if you catch a direct flight to there from Saint Lucia. Barbados is the only coral island in the region that boasts of all white sand beaches, and the amount of attractions should be enough to keep visitors entertained for weeks, maybe even months! Lounge around like a boss in Crane Beach, or take a peaceful walk around the Andromeda Tropical Botanic Gardens and Flower Forest. If you're feeling adventurous, tour the one-and-a-half kilometre route through a crystallised limestone cavern called the Harrison's Cave.

Catch a flight to Manchester, a major city in England, and see why it is a noted centre for arts, media, and higher education. Take a walk around the Urban Heritage Park Castlefield to gaze at Victorian houses or see the exhibitions of contemporary art at the Castlefield Art Gallery. If science is more your cup of tea then head off to the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), which is situated on the site of the oldest railroad station in the world.
