Small is beautiful, they say and Saint Lucia is no exception. Located mid-way down the eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent and north of Barbados, Saint Lucia is just 27 miles long and 14 miles wide.

This is the kind of island travellers to the Caribbean dream about – a small, lush tropical gem still relatively unknown, where the Atlantic Ocean kisses the eastern shore, while the beaches of the west coast owe their beauty to the calm Caribbean Sea.

Amongst the most mountainous of the Caribbean Islands, its abundance of natural charms is remarkable - steep coastlines, magnificent rainforests where wild orchids, giant ferns and birds of paradise flourish, hot springs, one of the world’s few drive-in volcanoes - and Saint Lucia’s most famous landmark – The Pitons, primeval twin peaks topping 2,000 feet.

There is a broad array of exciting activities available on Saint Lucia. The coasts and reefs offer excellent snorkelling and diving opportunities while the rainforest and mountains are one of the Caribbean's finest locales for hiking and birdwatching
