St. Lucia gives you the feeling that a small piece of heaven has simply fallen out of the sky and has landed in the Caribbean Sea. St Lucia is a lush, fertile Caribbean island growing bananas, cocoa, vegetables and fruit.
St Lucia is one of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, located in the middle of the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent - north of Barbados. St. Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, so you are never far from the sea.
