As a lot of you already know from my instagram feed ,my husband and I spent our honeymoon on the gorgeous islands of Barbados and St Lucia.
We had researched a lot of destinations for our honeymoon and decided that the Caribbean was the best option for us. The fact that is was a direct flight from London to Barbados, and that we would be able to bath in the sun in the middle of December was a deal breaker. The only down side to the trip was spending 10 days away from our son however we knew that if we brought him with us it would not have been a honeymoon.
Check out my first ever blog highlighting our trip at the bottom of this post!
We arrived in Barbados and were immediately greeted with a rum cocktail and balmy weather. Staying at The Coral Reef Club, where we were right next to the beach. Made the trip so much more magical!
A tour of the Mount Gay Rum Distillery, a night out at the Oistins fish fry and jet skiing on these crystal clear beaches took up most of our time. Not staying longer is our only regret and I am convinced that these are the best beaches in the world!
After 4 days, off we went to St Lucia where we stayed at the epic Ladera Resort. Which is one of the only hotels in the world to offer 3 walled rooms! St Lucia is less touristy than Barbados however the untouched nature makes it breathtaking.
On our first day we climbed the Gros Piton, which is a 4 hour hike! It was a challenge but rewarding afterwards. We did a Rainforest Tour where we hiked down to a beautiful little waterfall. The water was cold but very refreshing after walking in the hot sun. We covered ourselves in skin purifying mud at the Sulfur Springs and zip-lined across the rainforest to fill some of the days with a little adventure
The Caribbean is definitely a must see destination, especially Barbados. The beaches and friendly people are the highlight for me. I have already made plans to come back on our 10th year Anniversary!
