- St. Lucia All inclusive holidays
The island of St. Lucia took its name from Saint Lucia of Syracuse, sometimes also called Saint Lucy. Her feast day is on December 13th, and with the island's steady climate all year round, you might find that to be enough of an excuse to take all-inclusive holidays in St. Lucia in the run-up to Christmas. December is also the start of the dry season, which lasts through until May, although rainfall is lower on the coast anyway, which is where most of the tourist resorts are to be found. With highs in the 30s Celsius and night-time temperatures in the 20s, even the height of summer is likely to feel considerably warmer than conditions back home in the UK.
Take to the hills
St. Lucia has a volcanic landscape, and this led to the formation of some of its most famous features, including a mismatched pair of mountains that flank Jalousie Bay, nearby to the town of Soufriere. Given the names Gros Piton and Petit Piton due to their differing size, they are together the World Heritage Site of the Pitons, and they even feature on the island's flag as two triangles of slightly different heights. Meanwhile, look towards the island's interior and you'll see the highest point, just short of 1,000 feet above sea level, as the peak of Mount Gimie rises out of the lush green forests.
Dates for your diary
Apart from December 13th, another great day for cheap holidays in St. Lucia is February 22nd. This is when the island became an independent Commonwealth state, as recently as 1979, and you'll find celebrations taking place across the island – St. Lucians all over the world mark the anniversary as well. It's significant not only in principle, but because the French and British fought over ownership of the island for centuries between the 1600s and the 1800s, making this modern era of peace even more welcome.
Make the most of all inclusive holidays in St Lucia
Like other island destinations, all-inclusive holidays to St. Lucia make perfect sense as you're unlikely to go far from your hotel or resort anyway, and if you're down on the beach, it's usually easy to head back to the hotel bar for refreshments. Look for deals with water sports included, if you want the chance to splash around and cool off while adding some activity to your break too.
