Things to do in Saint Lucia

Hello,

We will be in St Lucia for 2 days and wanted to get some ideas on things to do there. We will be coming off a Safari in Sabi Sands so would like to do more "water viewing" here.

Thanks,

April

1. Eat at the Ocean basket restaurant

2. Snorkel and swim at the fabulous Cape Vidal beach close to St Lucia

3. Walk through the Cape Vidal camp site and try and spot the monkeys. Just do not feed them or go too close. They are not exactly innocent

4. If you are tired of the Cape Vidal beach, go to the St Lucia beach - but only after you have been to Cape Vidal

Navigator has given you some good ideas. You might also try:

KZN Parks board boat tour of the estuary

Guided bird walk

Paddle you own canoe (www.kayaksafaris.co.za/tours)

Crocodile centre (talks, demos and tea shop!).

Thanks for that, Kim. I think we might go to Endomeni (something new!). They have their own website with more info and details of accommodation, etc.

I had not heard of Endomeni before. Has anyone been? If so, what did you think?

Nobody has mentioned whale watching. Isn't it good there?

Whale watching was mentioned, but it is seasonal, (winter months) as they migrate up to Mozambique, so depending on when you are going, you may or may not see whales. Also this whale watching is on a boat so be prepared to get wet.

Glad to get wet. Which months qualify as winter there? Is September too late?

Winter months they start migrating from about May and well in to June/July is when you will see them. It is also sardine season on the Kwazulu Coastline so when the sardines come the seas are teeming with birds and sea life, feasting on this spectacle. This website says until mid Dec

http://www.kzn.org.za/index.php?districthome+24++57962 so possibly you will see them in September.
