St. Lucia's Villa Beach Cottages Offers Adventure Tours

Does your family love to get out and explore a destination? Check out the menu of tours St. Lucia's Villa Beach Cottages, recently renovated, can arrange for families:

  • Jeep Explorer Rainforest Adventures or ATV Paradise Tours – explore untouched areas of St. Lucia on an ATV, including a banana plantation and old growth rainforest. Enjoy authentic St. Lucian cuisine and a swim on a private beach.
  • Zip Lining – Treetop Adventure Park offers adventure courses, including one specifically designed for younger children. Zip along cables high above the trees from platform to platform for the ultimate adrenaline rush.
  • Deep Sea Fishing – Try your hand on a chartered boat or tour at catching sailfish, blue marlin, tuna, dorado and many others, or join a dolphin or whale-watching tour.
  • Kite surfing – This extreme sport combines the skills of paragliding, wakeboarding, surfing and windsurfing and can be mastered by most in a series of 4 to 10 lessons.
  • Horseback riding – Take a sightseeing tour on horseback through banana plantations, across pasture lands, along a natural forest trail to Cas en Bas beach, one of the most picturesque, wild and deserted beaches of the St. Lucia's Atlantic coastline. You can enjoy swimming with the horses in the sea.
  • Mountain Biking – Explore 12 miles of bike trails amidst tropical vegetation and historical remains of an 18th century plantation, with courses designed for beginners, intermediate and experienced riders.
  • Scuba, snorkeling and “snuba” tours - Choose from scuba or snorkeling excursions, or try your hand at “snuba” diving – a less intense form of scuba easily accessible to couples, families, children over 8 and seniors.
  • Gros Piton Nature Trails – Enjoy a hike through the Pitons, iconic symbols of St. Lucia, and enjoy majestic views and breathtaking scenery. The first half of the trail is moderate and can be enjoyed by everyone, while the second half involves a steep accent to the summit suitable to the more adventurous hiker.
