As one of the most mountainous islands in the Caribbean, St Lucia’s stunning landscape is crisscrossed by rivers and streams, several of which flow into cascading waterfalls.
While you’re staying at Castles in Paradise Villa Resort, be sure to visit some of the best waterfalls in St Lucia.
The Diamond Waterfall in the Diamond Falls Botanical Garden in Soufrière is one of the most well known and beautiful waterfalls in St Lucia.
With water flowing from the nearby Sulphur Springs (the world’s only drive in volcano), the water in the pool below is warm.
Although you can’t swim in this pool there are several pools nearby where you can take a dip.
The mineral-rich water is said to have healing properties, so enjoy.
The Toraille Waterfalls are also located in the Soufrière area on the way to the Fond St Jacques rainforest.
You can bathe in the pool below and there are changing rooms available.
The Piton Waterfalls are located south of Soufrière. With a drop of 30 feet, you can bathe in the pool below which is warm and refreshing.
The Latille Waterfalls are located in Micoud close to Castles in Paradise Villa Resort.
Smaller than some of the other waterfalls in St Lucia, the Latille Waterfalls are quiet and beautiful and, together with the surrounding gardens, are well worth a visit.
