Countryside Drive & Beach Day Trip in St. Lucia

Go for a memorable countryside ride on this St. Lucia excursion. Throughout this St. Lucia excursion, you'll be treated to picturesque landscapes, charming communities and many other unforgettable attractions. Book your trip today!

You'll leave the pier and head up to Morne Fortune but not before passing through Castries. When you reach Morne Fortune, expect your jaw to drop at the incredible sight of the harbor and northern coast. Stop at the Howelton Estate, the 18th century home of a dentist which has been converted into a cafe, art studio, and shop. After a nice drive through the countryside, you'll reach the St. Lucia tour's main attraction: Pigeon Island.

At Pigeon Island, you'll have an hour and a half to take advantage of the area's best photo ops. The 44-acre landscape is home to some of the most fascinating flora and fauna St. Lucia. Originally, the place was completely surrounded by water but eventually became connected to the mainland via a causeway back in the 1970s. When you reach the island, you'll be provided with your own beach chair so you can soak up some sun and relax. Feel free to explore the park, or even go hiking up the fort. Shower, restroom, and changing facilities are on site to freshen up. After 90 minutes of fun, you'll be taken back to the ship.

I really enjoyed this excursion and can't thank Glen enough for making this exceptional. If I ever go back to St. Lucia again, I am definitely going to buy this excursion again and ask for Glen.

I had Glen as a driver and am still amazed by the tour, care and exclusiveness of thos excursion. I would so do this again and ask only for him next time I come. I was able to tour many areas of St. Lucia. enjoy the private beach and purchase from a boutique. Glen stopped so that I could take pictures and made sure I was back at the pier on time. I would highly recommend him.

There were only 4 of us on this tour, so it was very personalized. Enjoyed the drive through St. Lucia to get a feel for the island. The beach time was nice, although it was a small pocket beach, not a spacious white sand beach. Very relaxing and enjoyable though. Good tour guide.

We had a tour of St Lucia in March 2019...our driver was DiMaya (not sure of spelling) , she was an excellent tour guide. There were only 4 of us on the tour , it was wonderful, we were never rushed at any of our stops at all and DiMaya was a very nice lady and answered all of our questions with a smile! Very pleasant and personalized tour! We loved our stop at Pidgeon Point ,the beach and ruins of the fort were great and we had plenty of time to enjoy both! We highly recommend this tour!

Interesting tour and great beach.

The driver picked us up on time and there were only 4 of us on the tour in a small SUV. He drove us around to see the countryside and took us to place in the mountains that sold Batik. The tour ended up at a great beach inside the Pigeon Island National Park so it was very quiet compared to the public beach just outside the park. We hiked to the top of the hill to see Fort Rodney which gave us great views of the area. We would recommend this tour.
