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.
