St. Lucia

Floating like an emerald tear drop between the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea is the island nation of St Lucia.

 

Things To See & Do

  • The capital is Castries and you can visit the basilica, filled with murals that blend the colours and traditions of Africa, the Caribbean and the West.
  • At the Central Market, you can enjoy real St Lucian home cooking, and browse crafts made by local hands.
  • The sleepy French colonial town, Soufriere, is cradled by some of the island’s greatest natural treasures.
  • Just a short boat ride away is one island’s finest resort beaches, Anse Chastanet.
  • Between the two volcanic spires of Gros and Petit Piton, is one of the west coast’s most secluded hideaways, Sugar Beach.
