Tread Softly

Book in advance with the St. Lucia Forestry Department to gain access to this nature trail, which is home to several delicate tropical plants and animals in addition to bird life. This breathtaking natural preserve is strictly guarded by the local authorities, and access is carefully controlled.

More than 30 species of birds inhabit Millet Forest, including some migratory species. Wild orchids, which are not native to the island but were thought to have been blown to the Caribbean from Africa via the trade winds, are also abundant in these verdant woods. The way to the trailhead is also idyllic, featuring a journey through traditional villages and banana plantations.
