Averages for St Lucia in August
St. Lucia is rainy in August, but that does not stop tourists from coming there in droves to experience the food, culture and beauty of this French-Creole island situated between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
The weather is warm enough year-round for swimming, sailing, and any other outdoor activities.
Plans might change in an instant due to the higher amount of rainfall during this month, but persistent monitoring of the forecast can be a helpful tool in planning one’s dream vacation in St. Lucia.
The island celebrates the emancipation of all slaves in the British Empire during the month of August, so there are sure to be festivities honouring this event throughout the month.
Visitors should pack a rain coat and make plans to hike up one or both of the Pitons while staying in St. Lucia. These mountains are the most-photographed attraction on the island.
The Petit Piton (the smaller mountain) requires no guide. There are ropes to denote the path hikers should take to its summit.
The Gross Piton, however, requires hikers to take one of their guides provided at this mountain’s welcome centre along to witness the breathtaking views from the peak.
If indoor activities are more your style, St. Lucia has several unique attractions, such as the Our Planet museum, which is both informative and interactive.
As a warning, August can bring severe tropical weather to the island.
Villa Cleopatra is located in Rodney Bay. The large villa divides into holiday apartments, which are suitable for a large group of people of smaller, individual groups. As well as the excellent location which is close to many amenities, rooms are also available at affordable rates.
