About St. Lucia
Saint Lucia is an Eastern Caribbean island nation with a pair of dramatically tapered mountains, the Pitons, on its west coast. Its coast is home to volcanic beaches, reef-diving sites, luxury resorts and fishing villages. Trails in the interior rainforest lead to waterfalls like the 15m-high Toraille, which pours over a cliff into a garden. The capital, Castries, is a popular cruise port.
The St Lucian authorities are working with the tourism industry to maintain a safeÂ environmentÂ for visitors. Nevertheless, muggings and theft from hotels, yachts or holiday rentals do occur, and occasionally come with violence.
