Saint Lucia

About St Lucia

The Graced Island of St Lucia is truly blessed with outstanding sceneries and is rich of its culture and heritage.  Sizably Caribbean, the picturesque capital of Castries, is home to some flavored and colorful street markets. Up North in Rodney Bay, modern and high standing hotels and a Marina are the best fit for those who like the touristy places.

The south of the island displays its outstanding beauty together with the Pitons geological spectacle. Also, dwells the world’s only drive-in through volcano –Soufriere- and its open pit spa-The Sulphur Springs & Mud Baths- as well as hidden beaches and former plantations.

St Lucia offers to its visitors its playful and hearty people, romance and entertainment.
English is the main language although Creole is widely spoken. While shopping in St Lucia, one can pay either with the local currency (Eastern Caribbean Dollars –EC$) or with US dollars.

Favorite beach ?

Anse Chastanet is one of the island’s peaceful, quiet and shady beach. 
The bay is protected by the cliffs and the emerald water makes it a cut above the rest.
One can unwind and lay on the loungers or access the watersport amenities onsite. The beach is also one mile away from Soufriere.

Favorite meal ?

Various delightful dishes are made in St Lucia to suit any palate: freshly caught fish and seafood, locally-grown vegetables and Caribbean preparations. 
Being a snack lover, Bakes are the perfect deal that combine a handy-sandwich like with some truly Caribbean flavors. This bread made of plain flour is usually fried or bake and can be filled with meat or fish. Shark and bake-our favourite- is simply some fish flesh mixed with vegetables in a deep-fried bake. YUMMY!

Favorite event ?

The St Lucia Jazz and Art festival is the fifth biggest and most popular world’s jazz festival. It is a major event as well as a vibrant part of the island’s cultural calendar. International artists and jazzmen from all over the planet perform live. 
The main scene is held in Pigeon Island although other events take place in all four corners of the island. Jazz lovers truly enjoy this festival as they are mostly attracted by the warm and Caribbean atmosphere going around.
