With Saint Lucia’s jungle-clad volcanic spires and long arcs of sand, it’s easy to see why the British and French fought over it for so long. Our Caribbean specialists have journeyed across the island, and they’ll not only recommend the best of the many beaches but also give you an insight into this multicultural nation. On a holiday to Saint Lucia, you can explore the island’s Kwéyòl culture at the Folk Research Centre, tour the British-built Fort Rodney and join the locals at a Friday-night fish fry.
Inland, you’ll find sugar and cocoa plantations, rum distilleries and nature trails that wind past guava trees and Creole houses. You can appreciate the steep volcanoes and canyons of Morne Trois Pitons National Park by hiking the pitons themselves, or on a coastal cruise below. To the north is yacht-filled Rodney Bay and the bright markets of the capital, Castries. Along the west coast, hotels lead onto sugar-soft beaches, while the quieter east shore is lined with farming communities and secluded coves.
