St Lucia

bmap

St Lucia is probably the most exotic and lush of all the Caribbean islands, and still unspoilt. The dramatic landscape varies from white sand beaches through banana and coconut groves to dense tropical forest and green mountains rising to 3,000 feet. Add humming birds, exotic flowers, tropical fruits and superb seafood and you are, perhaps, as near to paradise as can be found.

St. Lucia's main attractions are its beautiful sandy beaches and warm tropical waters. The beaches are kept in pristine condition and the perfect place to hang out all day. There you can sunbathe and read a book or enjoy people watching as you laze back on the sand. There are several beach bars where you can enjoy cocktails at sunset and stay to enjoy a delicious dinner if you so choose.

People who typically travel to St Lucia are those that enjoy fun in the sun. It is a great tropical destination, offering a wide variety of attractions and activities. Because of its tropical beauty, it is also a popular destination for weddings and honeymoons. St Lucia enjoys a year-round warm tropical climate. The summer months tend to be the hottest and this is also when the most rainfall occurs - although it usually only rains very heavily then clears up. The only time to be cautious of traveling to St. Lucia is between June and October when the winds can pick up through the region.
