About St. Lucia
|asically British, though 25 miles south of Martinique and flavored with French Creole influence, St. Lucia is simply beautiful and is becoming one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean.
Active travelers are drawn to its lush, mist covered mountains crisscrossed by rivers and tumbling waterfalls. The "trademarked" and world famous twin peaks of the Pitons rise abruptly and magnificently from the sea, while boiling lakes and steam vents remind the nature seeker of the islands volcanic origins. Set among this natural backdrop are hidden coves, honey colored beaches and sparkling reefs that attract the sunseekers, divers, sports fishermen and romantic couples.
A journey across the island will carry you past rain forests covered in tropical vegetation and colored by the hues of flowers such as hibiscus, jasmine, orchids and frangipani. Paved and rutted roads will zig zag along the jagged coast and curve through hills suddenly revealing fishing villages lined with colorful boats and clustered around a bay as the road again resumes its course through plantation fields of bananas, coconut and sugar cane.
All these combine to make St Lucia one of the Caribbean's most popular destinations. Whatever your pleasure, it's waiting for you in St. Lucia!
