St. Lucia from the Sky – Helicopter Transfers

A visit to St. Lucia is something to be experienced instead of read about, but keep reading!  The island has been coined the ‘Hawaii of the Caribbean’ for it’s lush tropical landscapes full of mountain tops and beautiful beaches.

As with any vacation, the journey to the destination isn’t always the most enjoyable part, it’s actually being in paradise that re-energizes, relaxes and rejuvenates.  Now imagine you’ve landed on the southern tip of the island, you know you’re ready to sink your toes in the sand and start your vacation right away.  At this point, the last thing you want is another weary leg of the trip to get in the way but most of the transfers to the northern tip of the island are upwards of 90 minutes away by shuttle and include some pretty windy roads!

But you know this, your certified travel concierge has already informed you that a helicopter transfer will not only let you see the island and coastlines from the sky, but you’ll also be cutting down your commute time from 90 to 30 minutes!

You are no longer painfully enduring the transfer.  You’re killing two birds with one helicopter ride and actually enjoying it!  And, most importantly, you get more time to enjoy your vacation and spend a lot less time just trying to get there.

Take a look to see for yourself and get in touch with your Beach Bum, we’re here to help you plan the ultimate St. Lucia experience!
