Lush, green and
tropical, St. Lucia is one of the most picturesque Caribbean islands.
From its sandy beaches on the north west coast to the dramatic scenery in the south, St. Lucia
has a lot more to offer
Most of the hotels are scattered along the sheltered north west coast, where a wide range of water-sports are available from the long sandy beaches. However, don't miss seeing the rest of this beautiful island. A trip to Soufriere, one of the oldest settlements in St. Lucia, is highly recommended. Go by boat, or bumpy road, and experience the island's abundant natural beauty, culminating in Les Pitons mountains -twin peaks towering majestically over the south.
Although the water taxis ply from the Anse Chastenet area to Castries, you can ask them to take you anywhere, and Carol and I spent a fabulous evening visiting the bat cave of Soufriere, following the setting sun as I took pictures of the harbourside homes.
The beauty of St. Lucia is not confined to the land.
Scuba diving is particularly good in the south of the island,
with visibility of up to 100 feet.
There are some good dive schools and vast stretches of coral
reef, a dazzling variety of marine life, and many wrecks are all waiting
to be explored.
