St Lucia is the black sheep of the Caribbean. Other islands might offer lazy days on white sands, but St Lucia begs to be explored. From the moment you first see the verdant daggers of Les Pitons rising above the waves, sunbathing will be the last thing on your mind. You’ll want to experience it, not just lie on it. And after the hikes, zip wires and scuba diving, your exhilarated body can relax on beaches as divine as any in the world.
