St Lucia Travel Guide
St Lucia is mountainous, volcanic and ever so lush. The natural beauty is everywhere, with fruit trees and tropical plants and flowers in abundance to the impressive twin coastal peaks, the Pitons. Nature lovers, divers and those who want to experience an exotic Caribbean island will find St. Lucia to far exceed their expectations.
The island has been occupied by a number of European invaders, but the influence of the French is still most deeply felt today, in the names of its cities, towns and bays, in the architecture and in the French-inflected patois spoken by islanders.
English, however, is spoken at all the major hotels and in island restaurants. There is so much to see and do, in St Lucia, from bathing in the Natural Waterfalls, and volcanic pools to horse riding along Cas en Bas beach.
Every Friday night the smell of barbequed chicken fills the streets with the island’s weekly Gros Islet Jump Up, followed by the Anse La Raye for the Saturday night fish festival.
The choice is yours on St Lucia, relax in paradise or take part in the many activities. Nearly every type of water sport including water skiing, snorkelling, windsurfing is available, as well as horse riding and mountain climbing.
