ST LUCIA HOLIDAYS

Saint Lucia is one of the Caribbean’s Windward Islands, the ones first reached by European sailors as they crossed the Atlantic during the age of exploration and colonisation. Most famous for its landmark twin mountain peaks The Pitons, the volcanic island of St Lucia is more mountainous than many other Caribbean Islands. Wake up to a symphony of bird calls and a view over the crystal clear Caribbean waters. Immerse yourself in a fantastic island with a varied landscape, diverse culture and cuisine.

Whether you prefer to stay near the bustling capital of Castries, the tropical rainforests or the hidden coves of the north of the island, let Millington Travel arrange your perfect stay in this fabulous country.

We have been arranging holidays to St Lucia for a number of years, many of our staff have been lucky enough to see this gem of an island and will be happy to share their knowledge and help plan your perfect getaway.
