St. Lucia

The main charm of this small island is its largely unspoiled beauty with secluded beaches, mountainous terrain and spectacularly lush rain forests. St. Lucia (pronounced Loo-sha) abounds with quiet inlets, colourful fishing villages and abundant natural charm from its stately forests and shady tree ferns.

The capital of Castries is located on a natural harbour formed from an extinct volcanic crater and although largely modern, reflects its British and French colonial heritage with decorative period buildings. More contemporary entertainment comes from the almost continuous hum of street music, thronging nightlife and the Saturday morning market, which is a must.

Between Castries and the island's northern tip is where you'll also find most resorts along a string of white beaches, which back onto a patchwork of natural greenery and banana plantations. The island's main thoroughfare runs around its perimeter and is a memorable drive in itself on what can only be described as rustic roads! One of St. Lucia's unique attractions is Mount Soufriere, a dormant volcano visitors can actually drive into. History, romance and intrigue are cornerstones of this stunningly beautiful island experience.
