Once you arrive at Serenity at Coconut Bay, the lush forests, pristine shores, and stunning vistas of St. Lucia will start calling to you. We are located nearest the island’s top attractions, which makes it easier for the adventurous souls that want to explore all this charming island has to offer. The only question that remains is how you’d prefer to take in the sights. After you make that decision, all you have to do is let your personal butler know, and he’ll take care of the rest.

One of the many perks of staying at Serenity at Coconut Bay is that your butler will book everything for you, from your dinner reservation to a horseback ride on the beach. Take a look at the following excursions we offer designed specifically with our Serenity couples in mind. This way, by the time you get here, you’ll already know what you want to have your butler book for you and can start exploring right away!

Take to the Water with Our Piton Sail and Snorkel Excursion

Some of the best views of St. Lucia’s landscape are not on the land itself but from the sea. That’s the idea behind our Piton sail and snorkel excursion. Not only will you be able to take in St. Lucia’s sights from a one-of-a-kind perspective, but you’ll also get to see what the island has to offer under the sea with the snorkeling component of your tour. This option is perfect for water-loving couples who also want a bit of adventure as they see the sights.

This excursion goes from 8 AM to 1 PM Monday through Thursday. During the morning sail, your captain will take you along the west coast from Laborie to Soufriere on our 43-foot catamaran named “Majesty.” Later on, your captain will take you to Jalousie and Anse Chastanet Beach, which is between the Piton Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The beach is renowned for its prime snorkeling, and we’ll even provide all the equipment you’ll need as well as light refreshments.

Go Flying Through the Rain Forest with One of Our Zipline Tours

If you like a bit of an adrenaline rush mixed in with your sightseeing, a zipline tour might fit the bill nicely. Your Serenity butler can book you any one of several zip line tours. Our first is a rainforest zipline adventure excursion that starts at 9 AM Monday through Saturday and goes until 1 PM. You’ll start your tour near the town of Dennery and fly your way through St. Lucia’s lush rain forest.

Our second tour, the Piton zip tour, is similar but offers you unbeatable views of the Piton volcanic plugs instead. This tour runs from 9:30 AM – 2 PM Monday through Saturday and will send you flying along our newest and most thrilling zip line in the Soufriere Hotwire. You’ll be able to take pictures of the Pitons right from the zip line, then we’ll treat you to a creole lunch at an original working plantation house. On the way back, you’ll have an opportunity for spectacular shots of both the Pitons and St. Vincent.

We also offer a combination zip line tour of the Pitons and botanical gardens that run a little longer at seven hours. If you’d like a more exclusive experience just for the two of you, ask your butler about the couple’s escapade private tour with zip line excursion. This seven-hour tour lets you and loved one experience the gorgeous Southwest Coast of the island, including jaw-dropping views from the Moule a

Chique peninsula. We’ll also show you around the Botanical Gardens, Diamond Falls, and the mineral baths. There will be romance in the air for sure with this tour.

Wonder at the Diamond Waterfall

Several of our tours will take you to Diamond Falls and botanical gardens, often described as one of St. Lucia’s natural wonders, in Soufriere. If you’re looking for a full-day adventure, we recommend the Soufriere Experience, a seven-hour private tour for up to four guests. This is perfect for couples traveling together who want to take in the sights.

We also have the same tour available in a half-day, five-hour experience. Both tours will take you to the world’s only drive-through volcano and give you plenty of time to take in the gardens or admire the wondrous sights of the Diamond falls. Our combination zipline with botanical gardens and volcano tour also will take you to the falls if that’s more your speed.

Ride into the Sunset on a Beach Horseback Ride

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more romantic way to enjoy the vistas of St. Lucia than on a horseback ride for two on the beach. This one-to-two-hour tour starts at Coconut Bay’s own beach. Your tour guide will be a representative from Sugar-Loaves Stable, so we welcome new riders as well as experienced ones.

You’ll get to observe the local wildlife as you ride as well as incredible views of the town of Vieux Fort and the Maria Islands. At any point if you see a scene you don’t want to forget, you can stop to capture it on photo or video. We recommend long pants and well-fitted shoes or boots for this tour.

Drive into the Soufriere Volcano

Your butler can also book you an excursion that revolves around the Soufriere drive-in volcano, which we refer to here locally as Sulphur Springs. These excursions will take you on a road right through the crater of the volcano. As you drive through, you’ll see boiling water and mud baths just a few feet away from you. Don’t worry, though — the Soufriere volcano is now considered dormant, as it hasn’t erupted since the late 18th century. You can also take a dip in the hot springs of the volcano, which are reputed to contain volcanic minerals with health-promoting properties.

We have several tours that will give you the full Soufriere Volcano experience. You can take our half-day green giant Jeep safari, which lets you stand up in the back of a roofless Jeep while you see the sights. We’ll also highlight the volcano for you on our full-day Discover St. Lucia tour. Depending on the length of the tour you choose, you can also take an open-air buggy tour to the volcano and mud baths. The buggies can hold two to four people, so this can also be an ideal couple’s outing.

The all-inclusive catamaran land and sea adventure is another popular excursion that includes the volcano. This eight-hour journey over land and sea will sail you from Laborie to Soufriere, home of the Pitons. After a stop for swimming off the coast of Soufriere, you’ll enjoy a full buffet lunch at a local restaurant. You’ll also get a guided tour of the volcano and botanical gardens before you enjoy a scenic, 45-minute drive back to your hotel. This tour runs on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8 AM to 4 PM.

Enjoy the Tranquility of a Private Excursion

We offer several private excursions for the couple who wants some quality alone time without the hassle of other guests. As we mentioned our full- and half-day Soufriere Experiences are both private tours that can accommodate up to four guests.

We also offer two different versions of the private Couple’s Escapade tour. The zipline option we mentioned already, then we also have a five-hour version without the zipline portion. This tour will also give you incredible vistas from the Moule a Chique peninsula as well as craft shopping in Choiseul and bathing in the mud baths and springs. Highlights include the Soufriere volcano, Botanical Gardens, Diamond Falls, and the mineral baths.

Other private tours include our Castries shopping tour, and our Discover St. Lucia tour, which accommodates up to four guests. Our horseback riding tour is also intended just for two guests.

You would think that your butler is doing the only hard work involved in booking your excursion, but the real challenge is trying to pick an excursion with so many great options. Whatever you choose, your butler will handle everything else for you, from the scheduling to arranging any transportation necessary. Enjoy your tour of St. Lucia!
