A Five-Room Hotel overlooking Marigot Bay – St. Lucia
St. Lucia – Caribbean
St. Lucia lies in the eastern Caribbean Sea about 21 miles south of Martinique and 26 miles north-east of St. Vincent. It is part of the West Indian archipelago which stretches for more than 2,000 miles from Cuba southwards to the northern coast of South America.
The island is the second largest of the Windward group, which themselves are part of the Lesser Antilles, and is 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, covering an area of 238sq miles and with a population of around 150,000.
St. Lucia manages to house an incredibly diverse landscape into a small island. Just along the west coast you’ll find breath-taking steep mountains, lush tropical forests, beautiful green hills, jagged cliffs and charming beaches. The Pitons and Volcano are the most famous sights on the island.
Any time is a good time to visit St. Lucia. The high season is generally regarded as between mid-November and March, the driest months, but the island now attracts visitors by air and from cruise ships year round.
St. Lucia enjoys a marvellous climate and even when it does rain, it is warm rain and generally does not last. The island lies with the tropical zone in the path of the north-east trade winds and has a typical sub tropical maritime climate of year round sunny, warm weather.
