If sun, sea and sweeping views are on your holiday tick-list, then look no further than this tour. You’ll swap the ship for a catamaran and sail along St Lucia’s north-west coastline until you reach Pigeon Island. This tree-covered island is one of Rodney Bay’s top sightseeing spots, so you’ll have plenty to do during your three hours of free time. Head straight to the beach and throw down your towel on the hourglass-fine sand, or get your snorkelling kit on and wade into the crystal-clear water. You’ll be able to scout out colourful tropical fish, and there are anemones and starfish settled on the rocks. Alternatively, hike up the steps to Fort Rodney, where Admiral George Rodney watched over the French naval base on the island of Martinique, 40 nautical miles away. From up here, you’ll have sweeping views along the coastline. Make sure you bring your swimwear, a towel and some suncream and, of course, your camera.
