St Lucia Jazz FestivalSt. Lucia Jazz Festival is probably the most notable event on the calendar for the island. During the month of May, the world’s top jazz performers descend on the island to delight visitors with an abundance of shows, varying from formal performances to intimate late night open air and night club venues to open air picnic style events.
The main venue at Pigeon Island is a mere 7 minutes away.
There are many spectacular dive sites just off the island, ranging from easy to challenging. Most dives can be reached by boat, in addition to some great beach entry dives that are located within walking distance of Akasha. Our staff can advise on diving centres on the island having experienced many of them first hand, and can often book at discounted rates.
If diving is not your thing, then join a dive trip for a leisurely boat ride and snorkel whilst other dive, relax and eat a leisurely lunch.
Rodney Bay Marina, where most of the boats are moored, is only a 5 minute drive from Akasha.
The iconic Pitons rise majestically 771m from sea level and are designated a world heritage site. They are actually volcanic plugs. There are still sulphur springs and hot mud pools in the nearby Soufrière caldera, and visible remnants of former volcanic activity in the area.
Climbing the pitons can be a great challenge, and can be arranged by our staff with a recognised and knowledgeable local guide.
