St Lucia Holidays – A Caribbean dream
Holidays in St Lucia are indeed a Caribbean dream: a small, lush tropical gem of an island that is still relatively unknown and undeveloped. St Lucia is one of the Windward isles of the Lesser Antilles, situated midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain between Martinique and St Vincent, just north of Barbados. It is tiny - only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, shaped like an avocado. The volcanic island's main landmarks are the Pitons, two soaring peaks on its southern coast that rise up from the sea and shelter magnificent dense rain forest full of wild orchids and tropical birds.
