Like a scene from a movie, remarkable architecture is blended into natural surroundings on Saint Lucia’s beautiful south-west coast within acres of serene grounds. There are no separate rooms, just a huge luxury living and sleeping space that seamlessly glides into its surroundings, via a large infinity pool, through an open wall offering truly spectacular and completely private views. There is a galaxy of stargazing options to enjoy from your infinity pool, large sun deck, couples hot tub and plush comfortable king-size bed. Extravagant and luxurious guests have access to 24-hour room service and a private butler known as a ‘Major Domas’ who can cater for your every need. Guests receive a "firefly” communication device upon arrival, allowing them to contact the service team at any time, day or night. The resort is designed by architect Nick Troubetzkoy and is a real work of art. Built into the mountainside so you feel part of the landscape and set within 600 acres of lush tropical landscape that is boarded by two gorgeous beaches, you are perfectly positioned to enjoy a host of activities and adventures. Set away from the main resort Galaxy Sanctuary is the largest and best-positioned Sanctuary of 29 exclusive sanctuaries designed to provide ultimate privacy and immediately feels special as you cross over your own long bridge-style walkway. Enjoying up to 2000 square feet of space, The Sanctuary is a sweeping open plan dream with a 15ft height ceiling, open 4th wall and an incredible infinity pool that faces onto unbelievable panoramic views of the Pitons and the beautiful Caribbean Sea. This is one of the most romantic escapes in the world, and the Sanctuary is a space that guests rarely stray from. The plush king-sized four-poster bed is decked in crisp linens and colourful throws. There are oversized recliners and plush sofas to sink into alongside an intimate dining area for romantic dinners or lazy breakfasts. All sanctuaries are furnished with hand-made pieces made from various tropical woods and feature authentic, carefully chosen ornate pieces. Integrated into the open space, the bathroom area is reached up a few steps onto an open platform with a huge walk-in shower, double sinks and WC, as well as a huge raised couple’s whirlpool where you can indulge in bubbly fun! Galaxy Sanctuary intentionally does not have television or radio and guests are asked to refrain from using cell phones in public areas to maintain the Sanctuary ethos however, Wi-Fi is provided, as well as an electronic in-room safe.

St Lucia is a stunning tropical destination with luscious greenery, exotic rainforests, volcanos and beautiful powder-white beaches surrounded by turquoise seas. The St Lucian people are warm and friendly and love to party. July is Carnival season, and there is a fabulous Jazz festival held in May. Galaxy Sanctuary is perfectly positioned within the lush 600-acre Anse Chastanet estate in south western St Lucia. The Sanctuary’s amazing elevated location with a wonderful southwest-facing aspect means it has access to one of the best views on the island, and its remarkable design means you can take in 270-degree panoramic views whilst being cocooned in a secluded tranquil oasis. Sanctuary guests have exclusive access to the Jade Mountain Club, which has a gorgeous setting and offers exotic cuisine. The Club is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with occasional live entertainment on balmy evenings. The open rooftop terrace has terrific views of the sea and Pitons and is the perfect setting for long cool drinks and romantic dining as well as nurturing yoga sessions. Sanctuaries are set away from the main resort, which is only a short stroll or shuttle ride away. Guests can access a host of activities, including fitness classes, chocolate tastings and guided nature walks, and there are gym and Spa facilities as well as four restaurants and a lovely beachfront with sunloungers and lots of watersports available. The resort has its own yacht and catamaran, so head to the water if you fancy a Sunset Cruise. The town of Soufriere is only a short drive away and offers a beautiful flavour of St Lucia with many things to see. The town was the original capital of St Lucia and is overlooked by the Pitons, two giant conical volcanic spires that rise abruptly from the sea. Soufriere is surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches, including the renowned Suger Beach, and there are some beautiful old plantation estates to explore. The Rabot Estate plantation is where Hotel Chocolat’s products begin, so chocolate lovers should try the excellent Bean to bar chocolate experience, where you create your own chocolate bar. The Soufriere Volcano (Sulphur Springs) last erupted in the 1700s and is today is home to one of the most popular natural spas in the world. The landscape is ‘otherwordly’ with boiling mud and steam belching out, and the mud baths are very popular, although the sulphur is very smelly! Don’t worry; you can wash off under a refreshing natural waterfall. If you want to party local style, head over to the Gros Islet Friday night street party, where crowds gravitate towards traffic-free streets set up with craft stalls and barbeques. Soca and reggae blare from huge speakers as you enjoy a rum punch or beer and decide which fish fry-up to sample. The party atmosphere continues long after sunset, with crowds dancing in the streets.

About the Island & Getting There

About st lucia.

The Land, The People, The Light – St Lucia’s motto couldn’t be more representative of this captivating sovereign island nation. Witness dazzling scenery, be spellbound by the fascinating locals and allow for St Lucia to brighten your day and show you a new way to life. St Lucia gained its independence from the British Commonwealth in 1979 and after centuries of a French presence, which is most visible today in the original Capital of Soufrière, St Lucia is famous for its Pitons & landscapes and vivacious community. St Lucia really is a hiker’s Nirvana! Where to start? That’s a tough question. However, with the likes of - The Diamond Botanical Gardens, Enbas Saut Waterfall Trail, Pigeon Island National Park, Sulphur Springs Park Scenic Drive and Tet Paul Nature Trail – it doesn’t matter! These UNESCO listed sites are a sight to behold. If you're likely to take to the water, you'll be able to admire the rich marine biodiversity just off the shore of St Lucia. Over 60% of the marine area is made up of coral reefs and these are very poular with snorkelers and scuba divers. Just make sure you put time aside to relish these privileged land & seascapes. Start your cultural trip downtown in Castries. Here you will be provided with more than enough entertainment for an afternoon and evening. The local Market runs throughout the week and is certainly the right place to come for exotic fruits and tantalising Street Food - the Green Fig & Salt Fish is local delicacy and it's not scarce, so perhaps try a few variants on this regional intricacy and let us know which is your favourite! The vendors are incredibly animated, so expect a show to be put on if you choose to explore this part of the island and brush up on those haggling skills. La Place Carenage and Point Seraphine are very popular Malls and if you bear in mind the added incentive of these complexes being Duty-Free, you and your guests will certainly get some good deals (A taxi back to your villa after such an excursion is suggested!). Many holiday makers are surprised to learn of St Lucia’s rich cocoa legacy. Ever since the 1700’s this island has been producing cocoa related products, that are incredibly sought after all across the world. Morne Coubaril Estate and La Dauphine Estate specialise in showcasing how plantations use to gather & manufacture the Cocoa Bean fruit and organise educational tours. After learning all about St Lucia’s former booming cocoa industry, you will probably need some therapy…how about chocolate therapy like you’ve never encountered before? Enquire at some of the islands more renowned Spas and you’ll be able to experience the benefits of a chocolate facial and massage. Remember - Chocolate isn’t a food, it’s a medicine! We have selected some of the most exciting villas on the island, so browse through these dreamy holiday homes and have a look at our cheeky little guide to St Lucia!

Of Chimpanzees, Humans and Artificial Intelligence  

Would be robber shot dead in corinth, machine guns no match for a match, vincent edmunds st. omer obituary, space for local space lovers.

It’s a common childhood dream to want to be an astronaut or a scientist after parents have explained Neil Armstrong’s historic moonwalk. What is not a cliché is Saint Lucians applying to university nearly twenty years later but still focused on pursuing careers in space or science and technology. Cheyenne Polius and Dajr Alfred plan to defy the odds and encourage other young Saint Lucians to come along with them. 

space travel st lucia

Cheyenne is a 22-year-old pursuing her Integrated Masters in Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Sheffield, England and Dajr, 23, is a double major student about to complete his BSc in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering at Kun Shan University in Taiwan. Cheyenne said she always believed she could be anything she wanted. “Space always excited me and physics quickly became my favourite science at secondary school. So, I just let that passion guide me to continuing with maths and physics at A-Level and then on to doing an astrophysics degree.” But the two did not have outrageous dreams without some locally tailored discouragement.

Said Dajr: “I came to realize how technologically starved the Caribbean region truly is. The education system somewhat prepares us for careers in STEM fields while the work available to us after graduation greatly contrasted this, and remains staunchly rooted in agriculture and hospitalities.” He added: “The budding scientists in our region have no choice but to find careers overseas and, in fact, the brain drain is hastily encouraged. If I had a dollar for every time I was told Saint Lucia held nothing for me, I would by now be a billionaire.”

Now, the two are Saint Lucia’s National Points of Contact at the Space Generation Advisory Council, an international organisation linked closely with the United Nations and geared towards providing a network for young and future space professionals around the world. SGAC represents young people between the ages of 18 and 35 at the United Nations, space agencies, industry and academia. The story of how Cheyenne Polius and Dajr Alfred became NPoCs is filled with passion, drive and a thirst for knowledge and opportunity.

“In order to give back and to create opportunities that I can only wish I had,” said Dajr, “I have facilitated a STEM-based workshop every university-summer break. Last year, it was held at the Vieux Fort Comprehensive Secondary School in partnership with the school’s science department. Cheyenne Polius, who at the time was the sole NPoC in Saint Lucia, was a guest speaker. Towards the end of her space-based presentation, she urged eligible individuals present to apply for the second position. I was successful in filling the vacancy.”

The two NPoCs of each country are meant to coordinate SGAC activities in their homeland. Taking up the mantle, Cheyenne spearheaded a group of other young space enthusiasts, including Dajr, to launch LUNAA, the St. Lucia National Astronomy Association. “The LUNAA team is so passionate and driven,” said Cheyenne, currently the association’s president, with Dajr as vice. “They make anything seem possible. Launching the association is only the first step in the big goals we have.”

Said Dajr: “There are many university graduates and scholars in the association and it truly astounds me how many brilliant astronomical minds call our small island home. We were able to photograph the moon during the most recent lunar eclipse and also held a star-gazing event at VFCSS using a high-powered telescope provided by Dr. Archer, one of our members.”

Hosting events such as stargazing, full-moon parties and workshops to build telescopes, or assisting students with applications to universities and scholarships, fall under LUNAA’s three main objectives: to raise awareness of the benefits of space exploration to Saint Lucia and the rest of the Caribbean region; to be an avenue for astronomy enthusiasts to explore their passion to enjoy astronomy as a hobby or turn it into a career if they wish; and to build a nationwide appreciation for space and open citizens’ minds to the multiple opportunities available in the space sector and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

Cheyenne and Dajr anticipate big plans for LUNAA, especially because of their affiliation with the Space Generation Advisory Council which provides a massive networking platform and possible job and travel opportunities. Asked about their hopes for their fellow Saint Lucians in the field of science, Cheyenne said: “Open mindedness. People love to think that because we’re a small developing island we just have to settle for what we have. But I believe we could achieve so much more if more of us were open to the possibilities.”

As for Dajr: “New entrepreneurs, such as Mr. Dujon of Algas Organics, who will create opportunities for future generations where there were none. People with the knowledge and know-how to guide the young with similar dreams and aspirations into the STEM fields and great thinkers to create new linkages which could allow our economy to thrive.” –

9 things to know before visiting St Lucia

Happy woman cruising towards the deux gros pitons, popular tourist attraction in St Lucia.

Make your trip to St Lucia the vacation of a lifetime with our top insider tips from a local in the know © Maridav / Shutterstock

Traveling to St Lucia is an experience like no other, from the volcanic beaches and emerald-dipped landscape to the mouthwatering cuisine.

I was born and raised on the island and still find it impossible to exhaust the wonders of my favorite Caribbean jewel. I will always book a window seat on the left side of a flight back home just to see the magnificent Pitons slowly come into view, and I will never tire of searching for the best bakes and accras outside of my grandmother's.

St Lucia has a well-earned reputation as one of the most tranquil and exquisite places to visit, but if you've never been, you might have some questions. What is the best way to take it all in? What attire suits the tropical climate? What about the hurricane season? What if you’re flying solo?

Here are a few of the most important things to know before you pack your bags for the Helen of the West Indies.

1. A greeting goes a long way

St Lucians are very courteous people, as you will quickly observe. You will hear some variation of "good morning," "good afternoon" or "good night" (which is interchangeable with "good evening") when you enter any store, public bus, restaurant or pretty much anywhere.

Not reciprocating might draw some curious looks and get you branded with the dreaded “unmannerly” label. When the chance arises, don’t be afraid to engage in some light banter when interacting with local residents, especially vendors or people who are providing some sort of service. The community's elders are typically treated with respect as well.

2. Marijuana was only recently decriminalized

The casual use of marijuana is a common Caribbean trope. In reality, St Lucia decriminalized – not legalized – the personal use of small amounts of 30 grams of cannabis or less in 2021 . A second piece of legislation cleared the records of people whose only crime was being caught with less than 30 grams of cannabis.

St Lucia's government has discussed plans to launch a public awareness campaign, a medical marijuana program, and a bill to legalize cannabis production on the island. These plans, however, are in the early stages of development.

3. Always carry some cash

Credit and debit cards are accepted forms of payment at most major businesses, hotels and various other establishments. However, cash is still the most common form of payment, and the official currency of the island is the Eastern Caribbean dollar.

When riding public transportation or purchasing from vendors along the roadside, having cash to hand will be especially helpful. You can get by with US dollars or euros as well, but it is a good idea to have some EC dollars on hand just in case.

You can find ATMs and banks all over the island to exchange currency, but verify whether your home bank will charge any foreign transaction fees for using your card abroad before you leave.

4. The roads are a maze of sharp turns and bends

The island’s roads are filled with unexpected turns, and there are a few potential hazards you should be aware of before getting behind the wheel . St Lucians drive on the left-hand side of the road, which is a departure from the United States, Canada, Brazil, Vietnam and multiple European and African countries.

Drivers frequently make sudden stops in traffic without warning – especially public buses – and speeding is common. Keep an eye out for motorcycle riders who may weave between other cars.

5. Hurricane season is not off-limits

St Lucia is usually warm and balmy throughout the year, but the hurricane season – which coincides with the rainy season – begins in June and runs until November. But it is very rare for it to rain nonstop for a whole day or several days at a time.

Even though St Lucia is technically in the hurricane belt, the strongest part of the belt is to the far north of the island. Most of the time, hurricanes in the Atlantic get stronger and more dangerous as they move west, away from St Lucia and toward the United States.

So, the hurricanes that do hit the island are usually much weaker than those that wreak havoc on islands to the northwest and on the US mainland.

However, it is still important to know what to expect during hurricane season. Be sure to check the latest weather forecasts and hurricane precautions before making any final plans for your trip.

6. Dress for the occasion

During carnival celebrations, revelers shed layers of fabric, seemingly in a nod to the tradition’s roots in emancipation. But there is a limit to liberation on the island’s beaches . It is a major no-no to go topless or nude on the beach.

The majority of St Lucians identify as Christians and attitudes are quite conservative. All Catholic holidays and sacraments are observed throughout St Lucia and churches can be found everywhere.

Other denominations include Anglican, Methodist, Baptist, Seventh-Day Adventist and Jehovah's Witness. If you wish to join residents in worship, there is no specific dress code but err on the side of modesty – moderate-length dresses and skirts, blouses, and trousers. Think casual and comfortable but not revealing. Remember to throw a cover-up over your swimsuit if you’re heading into a restaurant or any other place of business.

7. Is St Lucia welcoming to the LGBTQIA+ community?

St Lucia, like the rest of the Caribbean, has a generally conservative attitude toward the LGBTQIA+ community. Public displays of affection (such as hand-holding or kissing) between both same-sex couples and heterosexual couples are rare.

Certain homosexual acts are still illegal in St Lucia, though the law is rarely enforced. Travelers identifying as LGBTQIA+ should be aware of cultural norms and understand that showing affection in public may draw unwanted attention.

However, the island has been taking steps towards fostering inclusivity. St Lucia became one of the few countries in the Caribbean to provide legal protection to same-sex couples who are victims of domestic violence on March 8 when its Parliament passed the historic Domestic Violence Act, 2022 .

Additionally, it is the only country in the region that expressly forbids discrimination in applying such laws based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

8. Don’t be afraid to feed the strays

Dogs and other pets are welcome at various Airbnbs, apartments and villas. It’s also not unusual to find a few cats roaming freely around the premises of some hotels and outdoor restaurants.

But larger pets like dogs are not generally allowed into business places and eating establishments. You will, however, run into stray dogs along the beaches, particularly in the Pigeon Island area. Those dogs are generally friendly and accustomed to receiving food from kind visitors and locals.

9. Is St. Lucia safe for solo female travelers?

Traveling around St. Lucia by yourself is generally safe. Public transportation, such as taxis and buses, is usually a risk-free option for travelers. But like many popular tourist destinations, crowded areas are prime spots for petty theft like pickpocketing and bag snatching.

And as busy as the capital city Castries is during the day, it’s much more deserted at night. You should always take some measures to protect yourself while traveling.

  • Always have your cell phone handy in case of an emergency. If you need a local SIM card, pre-paid mobile phone cards are available island-wide at telecommunications companies Digicel and FLOW.
  • Do not get in a car with a complete stranger, even if they seem nice. If possible, use public transportation or a taxi. Authorized buses have green number plates beginning with the prefix M and taxis sport light blue plates with a TX prefix.
  • Avoid carrying around large sums of cash. Instead, pay with a debit or credit card where possible and just keep small bills to pay for snacks and drinks where cards aren't accepted.
  • Never leave your accommodation without telling someone you trust where you are going and when you expect to return.

12 Things to Know Before Traveling to St. Lucia

author image

See recent posts by Toby Orton

Jade Mountain Resort, St. Lucia/Oyster

Instantly recognizable for its towering Pitons, St. Lucia is a Caribbean island paradise that combines rugged volcanic mountains, tropical rainforest, and sandy beaches. It strikes a balance between a developed, tourist-friendly island and a rustic destination full of local charm and unspoiled natural landscape, making it the perfect getaway for honeymooners and dive tourists alike. From the bustling, party-loving north to the laid-back serenity of the nature-heavy south, the island is packed with waterfalls, sandy stretches of beach, fresh seafood, and the list goes on. Here are 12 more things to know before you pack your bags for St. Lucia.

1. Tipping is discretionary.

St. Lucia doesn’t share quite the same tipping culture as the U.S. Most restaurants and bars will add 10 percent for service to the bill — anything additional is up to you. That said, St. Lucia is an island that relies heavily on tourism, so feel free to tip to your heart’s content if you feel you’ve received exceptional service from your taxi driver, tour guide, or bartender.

2. The beaches are all public.

Anse Chastanet Resort, St. Lucia/Oyster

Unlike some islands in the Caribbean , St. Lucia’s beaches are all open to the public. So, while there are plenty of beachside resorts, they don’t have exclusive access to the shore, meaning you’ll never have to face that terrible realization that the dreamy beach you’ve spotted is for resort guests only. That said, some resorts might restrict non-guests from using their sun loungers and beach bars.

3. You can use U.S. dollars.

St. Lucia has its own currency, the Eastern Caribbean dollar, but that doesn’t mean you need to convert an obscene amount of cash before you arrive. Most places accept U.S. dollars, though you might be given change in Eastern Caribbean dollars. Tip: Always carry some cash because the option to pay by card isn’t always available.

4. Don’t expect to find the quintessential white-sand Caribbean beach.

The White Sand at Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

When it comes to beaches , St Lucia is an anomaly. Yes, they’re beautiful and the water is clean and inviting, but don’t expect to see bright white sand. Being a huge mass of volcanic action, the sand in St. Lucia is a mix of orange and striking black, with only a few rare exceptions. However, if you’re desperate for a white-sand beach, head to Anse des Pitons. The man-made beach features pristine sand that is regularly imported.

5. Friday night is street party night.

Plenty of Caribbean islands host weekly street limes (parties), and St. Lucia is no different. Every Friday night, locals and tourists come together to dance, drink strong rum punch and ice-cold beer, and feast on fresh barbecued fish, crab, and lobster. Small, laid-back events are hosted around the island, but the main party is the Gros Islet Jump Up. The street party in the small town of Gros Islet features Caribbean music, beer, lobster and top-notch people-watching.

6. St. Lucia offers more than just beaches.

St. Lucia/Oyster

Sure, beaches are great, but St. Lucia is also home to a lush, tropical landscape worth exploring. There’s the 19,000-acre National Rain Forest, the Diamond Botanical Gardens, numerous waterfalls (including the amazing Sault Falls on the east side of the island), Sulphur Springs (complete with mud baths), and the Pitons — which you can hike up. Oh, and don’t miss a trip to a local market. Castries isn’t the greatest place to visit, but its bustling market is worth making an exception for.

7. Beach vendors and guides can be pushy.

When it comes to beach vendors and local tour guides, tourists can find themselves in a conundrum. On one hand, arranging boat tours or trips to the waterfalls and rainforest with a local not attached to your resort can save you a lot of money. On the other hand, with so many people vying for your time, things can get pushy. Vendors peddling buckets of beer, water sports activities, and sun loungers are likely to pester you, especially on Reduit Beach, so be prepared to be firm. Either that, or head to a quieter beach like Pigeon Island.

8. Hiking Pigeon Island is a must.

Pigeon Island, St. Lucia; Allan Harris/Flickr

Not an island at all, Pigeon Island is in fact a national park located in the northern part of St. Lucia and offers beautiful trails. Among the lush tropical forest, the remains of old military buildings — half covered in vegetation — crop up in unlikely spots. You can opt to hike alone or enlist in one of the many local tours that explore the area. Once you’ve conquered the trail — including climbing to the top of Fort Rodney where you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the island — spend some time winding down on nearby Pigeon Island Beach.

9. The wildlife is amazing, but stray animals roam free.

While St. Lucia’s reef attracts an array of sea life, the island itself can more than match what’s going on below the surface of the waves. Visitors can expect to see hummingbirds, turtles (depending on the season), fireflies, iguanas, and a variety of bird species such as warblers and parrots. However, there are also a number of stray cats and dogs that roam the island, which might turn off some visitors. While charity groups are doing their best to find homes for some of these animals, the long-term problem of strays is one that the island has no real answer to.

10. Anse De Pitons and Anse Chastanet cater to all types of snorkeling.

Anse Chastanet Beach at the Anse Chastanet Resort, St. Lucia/Oyster

Anse de Pitons offers travelers the chance to snorkel at the foot of St. Lucia’s Pitons. The sea life here is stunning, but note that since it’s situated the foot of the mountain, the water depth jumps off and drops deep. If you want a gentler experience closer to the shore, Anse Chastanet is the better bet. Anse Chastanet is one of the island’s top snorkel spots, thanks to its proximity to a designated nature reserve roped off from boats.

11. Don’t be afraid to rent a car.

If you can handle a stick shift (most rentals aren’t automatic), a steering wheel on the right, and driving on the left-hand side of the road, then rent a car. While a lot of hotels run shuttle buses to beaches and attractions, hiring a car offers you the freedom to explore on your own schedule. St. Lucia is mountainous, so expect some steep ups and downs and plenty of winding corners. That said, there is only one main road on the island, so it’s difficult to get lost. Bear in mind that rental cars can be identified through their license plates, so think twice before leaving valuables in the car, especially if you park up somewhere quiet.

12. Beware of hurricane season.

St. Lucia is located in the hurricane belt, which means travelers might want to be picky about when they visit. Generally, the strongest storms coincide with the rainy season, which runs from June to November. While the temperatures are still warm during the off-season period, and prices are lower, you’ll want to decide whether you want to risk the wind and rain.

Some of Our Favorite Hotels in St. Lucia

Jade mountain resort.

Jade Mountain Resort/Oyster

Jade Mountain is one of the most romantic resorts not only in the Caribbean, but the world, thanks to its incredible Piton views and extraordinary design. The 29 enormous suites, called “sanctuaries,” are hands-down the highlight; through the innovative, open fourth wall, each has a view of a sea from the entire room — from the canopied bed, raised whirlpool tub, and (in all but the entry-level category) private infinity pool.

Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

This luxurious Viceroy is truly a stunner. It has arguably the best location on St. Lucia, right in between the Pitons, St. Lucia’s famous volcanic spires, and on a beautiful white-sand beach. Its 79 rooms are minimalistic, chic, and mostly white, and all come with private plunge pools, butlers, and 24-hour room service; the larger villas and cottages offer living rooms and huge bathrooms (some with outdoor showers and hot tubs).

Entry, Exit and Visa Requirements

Passports and visa:  U.S. citizens must have a U.S. passport that is  valid for the duration of your stay . No visa is required if you have an onward or return ticket, confirmation of accommodation, and can produce evidence of your ability to maintain yourself. NOTE:  Generally, all U.S. citizens are required to present a valid U.S. passport when traveling to Saint Lucia, as well as proof of anticipated departure from the country. This includes travelers arriving by airplane and by private sea-going vessel. Those traveling to Saint Lucia on a cruise may use another Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) compliant document. However, we strongly recommend visitors obtain a passport before travel in case of an unforeseen emergency that requires a cruise passenger to disembark and return by air. HIV/AIDS:  The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Saint Lucia. Find information on  dual nationality ,  prevention of international child abduction  and  customs regulations  on our websites.

Safety and Security

Crime:  U.S. citizens are not specifically targeted for crime in the Eastern Caribbean islands. However, crimes of opportunity such as petty larceny, burglary, automobile break-ins; as well as incidents of violent crime, such as murder, sexual assault, robbery, shootings, and drug related crimes do occasionally occur. As you would in any major metropolitan area of the United States, use the below personal security measures while traveling:

  • Do not leave valuables unattended in public areas, on beaches, unsecured in hotel rooms, or in rental homes.
  • Avoid walking alone, especially at night, on beaches, and in isolated or poorly lit locations.
  • Go out in groups or with a companion and limit nighttime activities to established safe and reputable venues.
  • Use only clearly marked taxis and avoid rides with strangers.
  • Stick to well-lit and well-traveled routes.
  • Avoid displaying flashy jewelry, expensive electronics, and large amounts of cash.
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you see something suspicious or unusual contact local police to report immediately.
  • Use added caution when shopping in crowded areas, especially during the holiday season.
  • Use added caution when attending crowded events, celebrations, music festivals, etc.
  • Do not leave drinks unattended in public venues as this could create a potential vulnerability for the use of “date rape” drugs in furtherance of criminal activity.
  • Do not be predictable; vary your daily routes and schedules.
  • Do not engage in illegal activity.
  • For boaters: Be wary of unfamiliar persons or crafts approaching your boat, whether at anchor or at sea.

Firearms: Do not enter Saint Lucia with firearms or ammunition without prior express consent from the Saint Lucia government. Please contact the  Embassy of Saint Lucia  with questions regarding travel with firearms. 

Victims of Crime:  Report crimes to the local police at 911 and contact the U.S. Embassy at (246) 227-4000. Remember that local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting the crime. See our webpage on  help for U.S. victims of crime overseas .

See the  Department of State  and the  FBI  pages for information on scams. 

  • help you find appropriate medical care
  • assist you in reporting a crime to the police
  • contact relatives or friends with your written consent
  • explain the local criminal justice process in general terms

  • help you find accommodation and arrange flights home
  • replace a stolen or lost passport

Domestic Violence:  U.S. citizen victims of domestic violence may contact the U.S. Embassy for assistance at (246) 227-4000.

Watersports Advisory:  Carefully assess the potential risks of recreational water activities and consider your physical capabilities and skills. Never venture out alone, particularly at isolated beaches or far out to sea. Avoid entering the water above your waist if you have been drinking and always be mindful of jet ski and boat traffic in the area.

Tourism:  The tourism industry is unevenly regulated, and safety inspections for equipment and facilities do not commonly occur. Hazardous areas/activities are not always identified with appropriate signage, and staff may not be trained or certified either by the host government or by recognized authorities in the field. In the event of an injury, hospitals are able provide urgent medical treatment, though very serious injuries often require medical evacuation. U.S. citizens are encouraged to purchase medical evacuation insurance . 

Local Laws & Special Circumstances

Criminal Penalties:  You are subject to local laws. If you violate local laws, even unknowingly, you may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned.

Penalties for possession, use, or trafficking in illegal drugs or firearms are severe. Convicted offenders can expect long jail sentences and heavy fines. Furthermore, some laws are also prosecutable in the United States, regardless of local law. For examples, see our website on  crimes against minors abroad  and the  Department of Justice  website. Arrest Notification:  If you are arrested or detained, ask police or prison officials to notify the U.S. Embassy immediately. See our  webpage  for further information. Firearms: Do not enter Saint Lucia with firearms or ammunition without prior express consent from the Saint Lucia government. Please contact the  Embassy of Saint Lucia  with questions regarding travel with firearms.  Faith-Based Travelers:  See the following webpages for details:

  • Faith-Based Travel Information
  • International Religious Freedom Report  – see country reports
  • Human Rights Report  – see country reports
  • Best Practices for Volunteering Abroad

LGBTI Travelers:  Consensual same-sex sexual activity is illegal, with penalties up to 10 years in prison. No legislation protects persons from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

See our  LGBTI Travel Information  page and section 6 of our  Human Rights report  for further details.

Travelers Who Require Accessibility Assistance:  Access to buildings, pedestrian paths, and transportation is extremely difficult for persons with mobility issues. Sidewalks (if they exist) are very uneven and will only occasionally have ramps at intersections. Pedestrian crossings are also very infrequent and can be poorly marked. Buses and taxis do not have special accommodations. Students:  See our  Students Abroad  page and  FBI travel tips . Women Travelers:  See our travel tips for  Women Travelers .

Medical facilities in Saint Lucia do not meet U.S. standards. Doctors and hospitals often expect immediate cash payment for health services.

We do not pay medical bills.  Be aware that U.S. Medicare and Medicaid do not apply overseas. Medical Insurance:  Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. . Most care providers overseas only accept cash payments. We strongly recommend  supplemental insurance  to cover medical evacuation.

See our webpage for more information on insurance coverage overseas. If traveling with prescription medication, check with the  government of St. Lucia  to ensure the medication is legal in St. Lucia. Always carry your prescription medication in original packaging with your doctor’s prescription. 

The following diseases are present:

  • Chikungunya

Vaccinations:  Be up-to-date on all  vaccinations  recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Travel and Transportation

Road Conditions and Safety:  Be extremely careful when driving, riding in a vehicle, or crossing roads on foot. Major roads are in average to poor condition, and you may encounter wandering animals and slow moving heavy equipment. Drivers often stop in the middle of the roadway without warning. Always maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you and watch for signs of sudden braking. Automobiles may lack working safety and signaling devices.

See our  Road Safety page  for more information.

Traffic Laws:  Driving is on the left-hand side of the road. There is relatively little police enforcement of traffic regulations. A local temporary driver's license is required. These can be purchased at all car rental offices and from the Transportation Office in Gros Islet. Public Transportation:  Public transportation consists of mini-buses and taxis. See our  Road Safety page  for more information.

Safe Space Social Support Network For Saint Lucia


Saint Lucian youth will soon be able to access a safe space support network designed to aid the physical and mental health, and wellbeing for emerging youth facing a range of challenges.

The new project will specifically target underserved youth and those in the LGBTQI+ community in Saint Lucia as part of continued collaborative efforts between the Government of Canada, through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI), and local non-profit charity the Sacred Sports Foundation (SSF).

As part of youth and gender identity awareness activities, the “This is ME and YOU” initiative will create spaces where young people can feel comfortable in their social identities, especially women who feel isolated and struggle with a sense of self.

The project will seek to provide a network of safe spaces for those facing social exclusion as a result of identifying as part of the LGBTQI+ community.

SSF is a regional leader in gender awareness and identity training, in a sport for development context in Saint Lucia by training and working closely with community youth, stakeholders and fellow community groups to help generate interest, deliver network sessions, build skills and capacity to strengthen leadership on and off the field of play.

“This is ME and YOU”, will also create a new podcast series encouraging youth to use their voice by sharing ideas and stories, tackling events or situations that impact lives as well as the most frequently asked questions, whilst seeking to navigate the challenging cultural waters with compassion and clarity.

“The absence of a social support network has led to repeated requests for assistance from the LGBTQI+ community”, says Nova Alexander, Executive Director of SSF.

“It is vital we expand our initial work. These efforts will help create a less vulnerable, safe space environment in which everyone can stay informed, and ideally find opportunities to develop their full potential”.

The CFLI programme supports a wide range of small-scale, high-impact projects, in developing countries, which align with Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement.

Canada previously supported Sacred Sports Foundation’s “This is ME” initiative in 2021, and is proud to continue its partnership with SSF to create a more inclusive global community.
