St Lucia, a must-see Caribbean destination
Located in the heart of the Caribbean, St Lucia is an integral part of the Windward Islands. It lies between Martinique and the island of St Vincent. Renowned for its beautiful beaches, this destination also captivates visitors with its lush, wild vegetation and majestic volcano.
Rising to about 950m above sea level, this mountainous island is bordered by the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The famous peaks of St Lucia also enjoy a great reputation. The Gros Piton and the Petit Piton belong to the Qualibou volcanic chain and reach a height of about 750 m above sea level.
St Lucia’s modest size is enough to enjoy a better holiday, a romantic break or a group excursion in a natural setting. Although it was colonized by the British until 1979, this volcanic island has maintained an undeniable charm and certain traditions. The streets of Gros Islet, for example, still come to life with Friday Night Street Parties every week…

St Lucia welcomes you with its 5 harbours, including Marigot and Vieux-Fort. You’ll disembark in Castries, the capital of the island. The small beach of Marigot Bay is not far away and is also worth a visit. Don’t miss the bay at the foot of the two peaks.
The coastline of Pointe-à-Pitre is also open to the Caribbean Sea.
