St. Lucia is a beautiful island in the Caribbean. From the minute I set sight on it from the plane; I loved it. The island is so green; an Emerald set in the deep blues of the sea. The landscapes are so varied from flat beaches, to winding hills and cliffs to the majestic Pitons.
St. Lucia is the kind of island where you can relax and do nothing or be an explorer and do it all. The beautiful beaches are perfect to lounge about and swim.
