Saint LuciaSt Lucia Hotel Offers Easy Access to Majestic Rainforest

By Charles Edwards

 Travel Tips     

While some may never want to leave their perfect St Lucia hotel, others may want to explore the island, and there is no better way to do so than by hiking in the rainforest, through old plantations, or along the beach. Cactus Valley and Pigeon Island are popular destinations, as well as these other hikes:

Union Nature Trail

In 1960, portions of an agricultural research station were set aside as a nursery, garden trail and medicinal garden. Today this nature trail, 15 minutes from the city of Castries, features a fantastic collection of native and non-native plants and trees, such as Teak, Mahogany and Mahoe.

Forestiere Rainforest Trail

This moderate hike is only 20 minutes by car from the capital city, and is located in the village of Forestiere. Originally a road constructed by the French in colonial times, the trail passes through groves of fig trees and fens. The scent of wild roses also float through the forest here.

Barre de L'isle Rrainforest Trail

This intermediate walk gets its name from the ridge that divides east and west St Lucia, and can be reached between Castries and Dennery. The route up to the summit of Mt La Combe takes about an hour to traverse, and visitors are often greeted by a mysterious, romantic cloud forest.

Millet Bird Sanctuary Trail

While this trail ends with a breathtaking view of one of the largest freshwater reservoirs in the Caribbean, the real attraction are the large number of birds that make their home here. Thirty species of birds reside in the area, including at least 5 species that can only be found on St Lucia. Millet Bird Sanctuary lies about 1000 feet above sea level, and can be reach by car 45 minutes from your Saint Lucia hotel, or just under 20 minutes from Marigot Bay.

When talking about hotels, St Lucia is the best.

Charles Edwards, when not staying at a St Lucia hotel, prefers to spend time hiking in the forest. Although his feet may be sore he knows he will be pampered when he returns to his hotels St Lucia after his hike.
