An emerald haze of thick rainforest, rolling hills and volcanic peaks, St Lucia rises incongruously from the turquoise hues of the glassy Caribbean Sea like a mysterious gem. One of the most popular and scenically stunning of all the Caribbean islands, it has much more to offer than just idyllic beaches; the iconic peaks of the Pitons Mountains reach up from the oceans waves and soar dramatically skywards, the azure waters are alive with spectacular marine life, and the colourful towns thrum to the pulse of reggae beats blaring from stereos.
