Detailed St Lucia Overview

St Lucia in Detail

St Lucia is indeed a Caribbean dream: a small, lush tropical gem of an island that is still relatively unknown and undeveloped, although it does offer a good variety of accommodation for tourists, including a few discreet resorts. St Lucia is one of the Windward Isles of the Lesser Antilles, situated midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain between Martinique and St Vincent, just north of Barbados. It is tiny - only 27 miles (43km) long and 14 miles (23km) wide - and shaped a bit like an avocado.

The volcanic island's main landmarks are the Pitons, two soaring peaks on its southern coast that rise up from the sea and shelter a magnificently dense rain forest, where wild orchids grow and brilliantly-plumed tropical birds abound. The Creole people of the island are as warm as the tropical climate, and visitors are treated to plenty of smiles as they make the most of the island's natural beauty and secluded golden beaches, where coral reefs beckon snorkellers and scuba divers.

Attractions in St Lucia

St Lucia is a wonderful destination for tourists with a tropical and sun-soaked holiday in mind. Its many beaches, emerald waters and incredible resorts draw in hordes of visitors every year, and understandably so.

Most guests arrive on cruise liners at the island's main port, Castries, and generally do little more than shop for souvenirs at the likes of the Castries Central Market and enjoy the beach; however, holidaymakers looking for something more won't be disappointed. Those who have time to explore are enchanted by the jungle walks and biking trails, as well as natural attractions like the fascinating Soufriere Volcano with its bubbling sulphur springs.

Visitors also enjoy the botanical gardens and the UNESCO-listed twin peaks which are known as 'The Pitons'. The Pigeon Island National Park is also popular among tourists for its white sandy beaches, as is seeing the best panoramic views of the island from the old town of Vieux Fort.

Those with a taste for sun and relaxation will not be disappointed in St Lucia, but neither will those looking for a more diverse tourist offering.
