Our guests often ask us for recommendations for places to eat, things to do, sites of interest and other unique experiences to make the most of their time in St Lucia.

Below are some of our own personal favourites that we enjoy and we hope you will too… If you do visit mention Jus’ Sail and share the positive vibes.

The Jade Mountain Club and Celestial Terrace have amazing views of the iconic Pitons and make for a special evening with that special someone. The menu at the restaurant changes daily. Chef Allen creates a theme which inspires each dish. We advise that you arrive by 5pm in winter and 6pm in summer to watch the sun go down before you embark on devouring your delicious meal.

Take a stroll around Pigeon Island National Landmark, enjoy the peaceful ambiance amongst the ruins of the British military past, hike to Fort Rodney for an unparalleled view of Rodney Bay, eat a Roti or Fish Salad at Jambe De Bois Beach Bar and sleep the afternoon in a lounger on the beach. Pigeon Island is one of our favourite spots to chill out and laze away a sunny day.

On the South side of Rodney Bay, at the end of Reduit Beach behind Marie’s Beach Shack is a great trail up Mt Pimard, its a well maintained road used by the Lucian Style Segway tours, and makes a nice gentle walk with stunning views over Rodney Bay and Trou Gacon at the end of the road. Disused WWII US Airforce bunkers are visible along the trail. Makes for a nice 30 min walk in trees with some shade.

If you want to try the thrill of Kitesurfing then Aquaholics based on Cas En Bas Beach are a great outfit. Simon is a patient and caring instructor, super passionate about kiting, he will get you up and kiting and on a board in no time. Book him for lessons but only if you are prepared to be bitten by the kiting bug, its super addictive and so much fun! For more info check out their website – http://www.aquaholicsstlucia.com/ 

For Great Food in the Rodney Bay area you are spoiled for choice as there are plenty of great restaurants. They are all on Trip Advisor so you can choose for yourself, but we really like the French Creole quality of Jacques Waterfront Dining at the end of Reduit Beach road in Rodney Bay and the best Goat Curry and other scrumptuous Jamaican dishes plus an assortment of other dishes can be found at Bosun’s upstairs in the Rodney Bay Marina. We can heartily recommend all of them!

A little further afield we can certainly endorse both The Coalpot and Pink Plantation House in Castries as quintessentially classic Caribbean dining spots.

In Gros Islet Village Golden Taste Restaurant does some killer ribs and they are great value for money, around the corner Andy and his crew will give you a warm Gros Islet welcome at Irie Bar, where you can lime like a looshan till late.

Mention Jus’ Sail when you visit and be assured of a warm welcome.

For Souvenirs you cannot go wrong with some award winning St Lucia Rums. Admiral Rodney is our personal favourite and with multiple gold medal awards from all over the world, we aren’t the only ones to reckon it world class! If however you are in the market for some arts and crafts then Island Mix is a great store on the back road behind the Reduit Strip between Big Chef Steakhouse and Antillia Brewery as is The Eudovic Art Studio in Goodlands on the Mourne in Castries.

Getting married? Or any other big event that you want a fantastic photographer for? Then look no further than our great friend Dani Devaux who has taken many of the photos on this site and has an amazing portfolio of work. Her joyful attitude and playfulness towards her craft makes any photoshoot an absolute pleasure. Her giggle is infectious so you will be relaxed and looking fab in your shots!

When in Soufriere there’s a small establisment you must visit, Zaka’s Art Cafe. Take a seat order a coffee ( which is home grown) or a smoothie and take in the wonderful art that surrounds you. You may have seen some of his art on various parts of the island, you can’t miss it, its bright colourful and has lots of character just like the owner. He has trained some local lad’s to create some of the art which makes every piece of art unique.

You can’t miss the Zaka Art’s Cafe its on the Soufriere water front, if you are standing on the dock looking at the church square you turn right, you won’t miss it, it’s the most colourful building on the block.

Zaka Art’s Cafe – 1 758 3842925/5859
