Swanked on its eastern shores by the Atlantic Ocean, St. Lucia offers a variety of accommodations to suit each style which translates into a myriad of dining adventures to tease your palates whether on the resort, or as you sail into the sunset, or simply on the beach in Rodney Bay.
Referred to by its people as 'the perfect destination', due to its luscious backdrop of the Piton Mountains of 2000 ft. from sea level protecting its natural waterfalls and unspoiled rainforests. 27 miles long, it lies between the Atlantic Ocean on the eastern coast and by the Caribbean Sea on its western shores.
It has been said that St. Lucia changed hands fourteen times between primarily the French and the British since the original inhabitants of the Carib Indians.
Britain ruled from 1814 to 1979 when the Island achieved its Independent status.
St. Lucians derive their identity from the many African slaves who were brought to the Island to work on the plantations, coupled with East Indian indentured servants and persons of European origin.
Although English is the official language of business and instruction, most people speak Kewyo or Creole (combination of African & French), which is a type of patois that is encouraged, and which reflects the mixed influence on the culture.
