Yachting & Sailing

Saint Lucia truly is an island paradise for water lovers. The warm trade winds that gently tousle treetops are ideal for sailing the deep blue waters that surround our 250-square-mile island.

It’s a favorite spot among avid sailors and first-timers alike.

The yachting and sailing sector is alive and vibrant in Saint Lucia. It offers visitors an opportunity to appreciate the stunning beauty of the island from a perspective that amazes as much as it allures. Set sail and join the many who’ve navigated its seas, staring in awe at the island’s undulating hills, magnificent Pitons and pristine beaches. Immerse yourself in an adventure that will reinvigorate your senses.
