SALAMANDER CARIBBEAN SAILING HOLIDAYS and EXCURSIONS

TOP 10 EXCURSIONS in ST. LUCIA

You can choose to sail or use Salamander as a base to see some wonderful sights including the famous Pitons, a World Heritage Site, tropical gardens and rainforests, chocolate plantations and factories, volcanoes, waterfalls, sulphur springs, mud baths, horse riding, beaches and snorkelling. 

THE PITONS

The famous Pitons are two majestic steep-sided mountainous volcanic plugs, volcanic spires. Gros Piton is 798.25 m high, and Petit Piton is 743 m high. The Pitons are a World Heritage Site which you can choose to hike to the top of with a guide or just admire the view from the comfort of your yacht moored below.

 

TROPICAL GARDENS AND RAINFOREST

Their are many colourful tropical gardens to visit including The Botanical Gardens and Fond Doux

CHOCOLATE PLANTATIONS AND FACTORIES

Two of the best are the famous Hotel Chocolat and the lesser known but equally impressive Fond Doux with it's own tropical garden.

VOLCANOES

You can literally drive right into the crater of this volcano and walk between the bubbling sulfur springs and hissing pools.

 

SULPHUR SPRINGS

The Soufriere Volcano (Sulphur Springs) last erupted in the 1700's - over 200 years! It originated from a weak spot in the crust of a collapsed volcanic crater 

 

MUDBATHS

The sulfurous water is said to be perfect in reducing stress, curing rheumatism, psoriasis and other skin aliments.  

WATERFALLS

 

Their are many waterfalls worth a visit including the Toraille, Diamond, Superman, Piton and Errand waterfalls.  

 

HORSERIDING ON THE BEACH AND IN THE SEA

A short trip to Cas en Bas on the west coast side facing the wild Atlantic to ride a horse on the beach or in the sea is a must with a drink at Marjorie's beach-side bar.

RAINFOREST CANOPY TOURS AND ZIPLINE ADVENTURES

Whether it's a hike, a canopy tour or an adrenaline fueled zip-line adventure, this is the place to visit.  

RODNEY BAY AND PIDGEON ISLAND

A walk along Rodney Bay to Pidgeon Island, first occupied by the Amerindians, mainly Caribs. The island was later occupied by pirates whose leader was a Norman Captain called Francois Le Clerc. He had a wooden leg and was known to the French as Jambe de Bois. Since then the British built a Naval Base at Gros-Islet Bay, heavily fortifying Pigeon Island. From there they were able to monitor the French fleet in Martinique which resulted in the defeat of the French at the Battle of the Saints in 1782.

TESTIMONIAL - WHAT DO THE SALAMANDER SAILING ADVENTURE GUESTS SAY ?

 

“Sailing round St. Lucia”

"We joined in St Lucia and had a wonderful 10 days. Chris & Sue had devised a cunning itinerary that took in glorious scenery and wonderful food. And a bit of sailing, although that was limited by Covid issues - we stayed in St Lucia - which wasn't a hardship in the least, as the island has so much to offer. Altogether a fantastic break!"
