When To Go
A prime time for a St. Lucia yacht charter is during the winter months when a cool northeast wind blows across the shores. Heading north, cruising close-hauled or on a close reach is typical while those that opt for a one-way charter can cover more ground and avoid moving windward.
December to May are the best months to sail St. Lucia, avoiding the hurricane season and ensuring the very best sailing conditions. St. Lucia’s position near to the equator ensures pleasant conditions all year round, with average temperatures around 26ºC.
Regions Worth Highlighting
The twin conical peaks of Petit Piton and Gros Piton are among the most noteworthy landmarks in St. Lucia. Cruising in the Pitons is certainly magic to the eyes of countless cruisers who visit every year.
Creole buildings with gingerbread trim give the place an Old World ambiance. Both scenic and accommodating to boaters, the waters around the Pitons are part of the Soufriére Marine Management Area and a highlight of yachting in St. Lucia.
Sitting on the southwest edge of Martinique, Anse Mitan is a palm-studded beach offering deep clear water and a quaint array of restaurants and attractions just foot steps away from the shore. Feast on fresh-caught seafood or get adventurous and snorkel in a wide-open world brimming with sea life.
Just a mile and a half away, the town of Trois Ilets is the place to be when the sun goes down. Visit Casino Trois-Ilets and for classic games like roulette, stud poker and craps.
Tucked away below the verdant hilltops on the west side of St. Lucia, Marigot Bay is a secluded anchorage for boaters seeking a relaxing quiet harbor during their journey along the coast. Charming homes overlook the seas in a colorful collage of white and red-topped roofs.
The nearby Marina Village features a variety of unique stores and boutiques perfect for shopping. Waterfront restaurants offer an array of French, Creole and Caribbean cuisine.
