Once a lesser-known Caribbean destination,
St. Lucia has recently become one of the area’s more popular
destinations, with some of its finest resorts. Because most
development has been limited to the white-sand beaches of the
northwest, the rest of St. Lucia remains relatively unspoiled
and scattered by green-mantled mountains, valleys, banana plantations,
wild orchids, fishing villages and an active volcano. Here you’ll
find a flavor of the South Pacific in addition to the mixed
French and British culture.
The rainforest preserves of St. Lucia's
mountainous interior are one of the Caribbean's finest locales
for hiking and bird watching. Of course, the island also possesses
excellent facilities for golf, tennis, sailing, and a host of
other leisure pursuits.
