St. Lucia is one of the Windward isles of the Lesser Antilles, situated midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain between Martinique and St Vincent, just north of Barbados. It is tiny – only 27 miles (43km) long and 14 miles (23km) wide, but boasts spectacular scenery, and a landscape as surprising as it is beautiful. Offering golden beaches, lush rainforests and the unique, volcanic Piton Mountains, which rise majestically from the turquoise sea, St. Lucia’s rich, natural beauty is evident in its exotic wildlife, giant ferns and wild orchids. The island’s steep coastlines and lovely reefs offer excellent snorkelling and scuba diving. The rainforest preserves of St. Lucia’s mountainous interior are one of the Caribbean’s finest locales for hiking and bird watching.
