St. Lucia is a small, lush tropical gem that is still relatively unknown. One of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, it is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados. St. Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide. The island offers everything from lounging on the beach, hiking a dormant volcano, or splashing around in mineral springs. St. Lucia is a mountainous island with rain forests, magnificent waterfalls and abundant wild orchids, giant ferns, and tropical birds.  Of course, the island also possesses excellent facilities for golf, tennis, sailing, and a host of other leisure pursuits.
