The Sandals Grande St. Lucian is the perfect resort for a Caribbean honeymoon. Sandals resorts are geared towards couples —they provide adults only, all-inclusive, luxury experiences. The Sandals Grande St. Lucian is located on it’s own private peninsula, offering spectacular views of St. Lucia’s crystal clear waters, volcanic mountains & lush green forests.
Honeymooning in St Lucia
St. Lucia is a tiny island nation in the Caribbean. It has a rugged mountainous terrain that was formed by volcanic eruptions. This presents many incredible hiking opportunities. The Pitons are St. Lucia’s famous mountain range, and you can climb them in one day! St. Lucia is also known for world class snorkeling and diving opportunities.
Another unique tourist attraction in St. Lucia is the “drive in volcano.” The volcano emits sulfur instead of lava, and thus you can visit Sulfur Springs Park. While it does have a rotten egg smell, sulfur has many therapeutic properties. It’s thought to be detoxifying, pain relieving and mineral rich. At Sulfur Springs Park, you’ll have the opportunity to bathe in it!
In addition to natural exploration, St. Lucia offers many thrilling activities such as ATV tours, parasailing, boating & much more! These activities can be organized through Sandals or outside the resort.

During our stay at Sandals, we found so many unique extras to get excited about. At the beach, we were surprised to find that each lounge chair was already stocked with towels and a cooler full of refreshments! Including water, beer and wine. All you have to do at Sandals is walk up to the beach and enjoy!
