Whilst in St. Lucia, you must explore the ocean. The waters surrounding the island are an oasis for scuba diving, snorkelling, whale watching and deep sea fishing. If such exertions don’t appeal, then ask your personal assistant at Marigot Bay Marina and Resort to help you arrange a sunset cruise with canapés and champagne galore; it’s not a bad way to discover the ocean either.
There is an abundance of eclectic activities to enjoy during your stay, not in the least those provided by the hotel but one of my personal favourites was another trip into the jungle for a zip lining experience with Rainforest Adventures. Guests can enjoy a serene aerial tram up into the rainforest, zip lining and bird watching. During all of which expert guides can talk you through the jungle and its many blessings.
A thousand words in and yet to mention a beach, such is the rich variety of activities available to the luxury traveller in St. Lucia. That said a short boat trip from the resort will take you to the bay’s beach which is a small but relaxed strip of land looking out to the ocean. Take the opportunity to grab a guide, rent a kayak and paddle from the bay to the ocean to its tributary river. Stop on the dark-sand beach that intersects the two and take a mindful moment to take it all in.
Our guide delivered fresh guava and coconuts to drink as we rested after the exertions of the kayak, and although St. Lucia may be so much more than just sun, sea and sand, the opportunity to enjoy such things completes a truly luxury experience in one of the world’s most beautiful natural paradises.
The wonder of St. Lucia is how such a small island can cater to so many tastes. From those seeking soulful relaxation and impeccable luxuries through to thrill-seeking adventurers and beach bums, from families to couples looking for a romantic hideaway, St. Lucia has something to offer everyone and, as such, it should be cemented on your bucket list.
One thing’s for sure, whether you seek luxury, adventure or delightful cuisine, Capella Marigot Bay Resort is the place from which to experience it all.
