The beautiful island of St. Lucia is a sovereign island country in the West Indies, found in the southern Caribbean. Arriving in St. Lucia you’ll notice that the mountains appear to grow straight out of beautiful blue waters. The islands coastline is absolutely breathtaking. Marigot Bay is one of the most beautiful places in the Caribbean. The island is covered in lush green foliage. Some of the beaches are tucked away in little coves, and are easily accessible by boat. You might even see a cliff diver as you pass by.
A little bit about the island’s history…
St. Lucia was first settled by Arawak Indians around 200 A.D., though by 800 their culture had been superseded by that of the Caribs. These early Amerindian cultures called the island “Iouanalao” and “Hewanorra,” meaning “Island of the Iguanas.” The history of the island’s European discovery is a bit hazy.
If you are only in Castries St. Lucia for one day, consider taking an excursion that gives you a bit of everything. Be sure to visit Marigot Bay. Next, see the Pitons rising majestically out of the deep blue water. And of course be sure to visit the volcano and perhaps indulge in a sulfur mud bath. Located at the sulfur mud baths is a powerful waterfall. After spending time in the mud venture down to the waterfall and take a shower to knock most of the mud off. Don’t miss sailing underneath the arch used in Disney’s popular film, Pirates of the Caribbean. We absolutely loved our excursion with Joy’s Adventures.
