St. Lucia – Located in midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados. It is the kind of island that tourists came to the Caribbean dream about. A minor, lush tropical gem that is still comparatively unknown. One of the Exposed Islands of the Lesser Antilles, St. Lucia is just 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, with a shape that is said to look like either a mango or an avocado (depending on your taste). St. Lucia has been occupied since long before colonial times, and its cultural treasures are a charming mélange of its rich past and its many diverse traditions.
St. Lucia appears like an island plucked from the South Pacific and set down in the Caribbean. Its unique twin coastal peaks, the Pitons, soar 2,000 feet up from the sea, shielding magnificent rain forests where wild orchids, giant ferns, and birds of paradise flourish. Brilliantly-plumed tropical birds abound, with endangered species like the indigenous St. Lucia parrot. There are many exciting and exotic activities available on St. Lucia. The island’s sheer coastlines and lovely reefs offer outstanding snorkeling and scuba diving. The rainforest preserves of St. Lucia’s hilly interior are one of the Caribbean’s finest locations for hiking and bird watching. The island also retains exceptional facilities for golf, tennis, sailing, and a host of other freedom pursuits. One should not miss the St. Lucia’s Soufriere Volcano, the world’s only drive-in volcanic crater.
