St. Lucia, that’s where!
St. Lucia is proof that all islands are not created equal. Named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse, it’s the only country named after a female historical figure—but that’s not its only claim to fame.
The island’s natural, unspoiled beauty has helped St. Lucia earn the distinction of being awarded the World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination a record 13 times by the World Travel Awards. There are beautiful sandy beaches, lively seaside towns, and the island’s iconic twin peaks, the Pitons.
The island’s flavorful West Indian cuisine and joie de vivre collide every weekend in fishing villages like Gros Islet, Anse La Raye, and Dennery, where the freshly grilled catch is accompanied by intoxicating rhythms, dancing, and dominoes. The exuberant abandon of carnival revelry, incredible hiking, and magical waterfalls help make St. Lucia unforgettable.
