Best Times To Visit St. Lucia

Best Times To Visit St. Lucia Published on .

St Lucia View Of Bay

From white sand beaches to turquoise seas, it’s no wonder St. Lucia is a dream destination for many. Scuba diving, snorkelling, and relaxing on the beach are the main attractions, not to mention island hopping around the Caribbean Seas.

However, many people wonder, what’s the best time to visit St. Lucia? As with many destinations, there’s no one particular season that’ll suit all travellers, so here are some tips to help you decide.

Winter Sun

St. Lucia is a big destination for winter sun, so between December and April is considered the peak season. It’s worth booking your business class flights to St Lucia as far in advance as possible to beat the crowds and booking your accommodation as soon as you know the dates. However, there are advantages to booking during the busy season, and it’s a popular time because of:

  • Warm seas
  • Comfortable temperatures
  • Long days – March has around 10 hours of sunshine a day
  • Lower humidity and less chance of rain
  • These months are the coolest in St. Lucia, usually hovering around the mid to high-20s, allowing for a more comfortable heat than other months. If you want to do outdoor activities such as hiking, it’s better to come when it’s cooler, as the heat can sometimes be oppressive.

    Rainy Season

    Rainy season can run for as long as June to November, although it varies a little by year. Many travellers think that rainy season will mean being stuck in their hotel all day, but there’s no reason why you can’t still enjoy the island and the hot weather. Many showers are short and light, so you can still fit plenty of fun into your trip.

    This is a great time to get cheap business class flights, as well as excellent deals on accommodation, and because it’s low-season the island is much less busy. There’s always plenty to do, such as the St. Lucia carnival that runs from June to July, or the national holiday of Emancipation Day on 1st August, which sees colourful street parties.

    Hurricane Warnings

    As with any Caribbean island, St. Lucia has a risk of hurricanes, which usually reaches its peak around August to September. If you’re visiting during this time, then it’s important to get comprehensive travel insurance in case of cancellation, and to keep an eye out for hurricane warnings. This time of year enjoys hot weather, although it can be very humid, so make sure you’re close to the sea or a pool to cool off.

    Year-round Heat

    While rainfall and humidity can vary, the best thing about St. Lucia is that it’s warm all year-round. Depending on the amount of heat you like, you can visit either during the winter or summer. It’s worth keeping in mind that the coast is a little cooler, so if you plan to explore the mountains, you should visit in the peak winter season.
