About St Lucia
Set on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean, St Lucia is part of the Lesser Antilles and is located north of the island of Saint Vincent and Barbados. Known as a volcanic island, St Lucia is more mountainous than many other Caribbean islands with the highest point being Mount Gimie at a staggering 950 metres above sea level.
Well known across the world for its stunningly small and luxurious resorts that boast colour and flair, with a variety of hidden beaches, the culture in St Lucia is largely influenced by East Indian, African, French and English heritage.
Known around the globe for the vast amount of festivals which take place every year, including La Rose and La Marguerite, St Lucia certainly draws the attention of famous musicians and visitors from around the world.
Cricket is by far the most popular sport on the island, which is home to the Windward Islands Cricket Team, while dancing is another popular pastime and known for being extremely active and descended from the African culture.
