Small, but sublime, the island of Saint Lucia bursts with breathtaking vistas. The forest-capped peaks of volcanic spires rise from the sea, waves lapping golden shores. Blissful blue coves beckon beach breakers looking for a dip with a view. If you can tear yourself away from the coastline, adventure inland for a rainforest hike, a mud bath in wild springs or a stroll through colonial ruins.

Fun Fact

It might be hard to believe, but Saint Lucia is the only country in the world named after a woman! That woman is none other than Saint Lucy of Syracuse, a Christian martyr. Named by stranded French sailors and initially colonized by the French, the island was also on-and-off controlled by the British who referred to it as Helen of the West Indies.
