Saint Lucia is a Caribbean island country that is situated in the midst of the triangle Martinique-St Vincent and the Grenadines-Barbados. It is a volcanic island whose coast for the most part consists of rapidly rising forested mountains, most dramatic of which are the two volcanic plugs called the Pitons that you see when approaching the island from the south west. These are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is some of the most spectacular nature you will find anywhere in the Caribbean.
But we just realized that we started off our article on Saint Lucia on a different note than most other travel guides would. This is after all a honeymooners paradise, filled with resorts where nature and anything else plays a second fiddle to resorts and beaches, right? Well, I guess we beg to differ. Saint Lucia really is much more versatile than that.
From the Sulfur Springs Park (in the volcano) to a climb up the Pitons, trekking the rain forest, snorkeling or scuba diving. All the ingredients for an adventurous holiday are there. But having said that, once you get back from your activity for the day, nobody will stop you from laying back at one of the fantastic beaches (for instance at Anse Mamin beach), or from heading back to the resort and sipping cocktails in your jacuzzi. This is paradise, and not the boring kind. [Review by travelindicator]
