St. Lucia island in the Caribbean holds a wealth of natural beauty—lush mountains, a steaming sulfur volcano, 19,000 acres of rainforest, charming black-and-white-sand beaches, stunning rare colorful foliage and exotic wildlife. When you add the pleasant St. Lucia weather and the nice beaches, you understand why it is a popular Caribbean destination.
There's much to do on this little island, although given it's rise as a high-end resort, you will need your wallet handy if you wish to take advantage of much of it. The rainforest is an ideal place for hiking, mountain biking, bird-watching or just enjoy standing near a waterfall to soak up the mist from its spray.
And there's also whale-and dolphin-watching, snorkeling, kite-sailing, fishing and diving.
Vacationers going to St. Lucia travel there generally for two distinct reasons: either to enjoy its charm and undeveloped feel, still found in some places, or to luxuriate in five-star waterfront luxury. Whether staying in a deluxe, all-inclusive resort or a local inn or hotel, St. Lucia and its residents extend a warm welcome.
An avocado-shaped island 14 mi/23 km wide by 27 mi/43 km long, St. Lucia is one of the greenest and lushest areas in the Caribbean. The island is mountainous, except for the northern area around Gros Islet and Rodney Bay. Most of the resorts and towns are located right along the shore.
The twin volcanic peaks, Petit Piton and Gros Piton—probably the most-photographed mountains in the Caribbean as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site—are on the southwestern side of the island.
