Why come to St Lucia for a vacation – by the Telegraph

The Daily Telegraph in UK published an article about why you should head to St Lucia for your holiday.  Below we quote the reasons they feel this is a must visit place.

“For the scenery as much as to flop on the beach. Much of St Lucia is mountainous and covered in a blanket of thick rainforest, and the south-west corner has arguably the most arresting sight in the whole Caribbean: of the green and precipitous volcanic cones of the Petit Piton and Gros Piton rising out of a blue ocean. That is not to say that St Lucia doesn’t have some lovely beaches – they are golden in the north, and mostly silvery in the volcanic south. It’s just that they are rather outshone by the island’s other natural assets.

St Lucia is also as good a choice as anywhere in the Caribbean for secluded, upmarket, romantic places to stay. Your hotel room might have an outdoor garden shower, a private plunge pool, a hammock for two on its balcony, and a view of the thrusting Pitons. Nature and fertility will be all around you.

Several hotels have featured prominently in the US and, more recently, UK versions of The Bachelor television series, and wherever you go, you trip over wedding ceremonies and loved-up honeymooning couples. That said, a week on St Lucia doesn’t have to be all about candlelit meals for two every night. There are also good family-oriented hotels, and you can party the night away in Rodney Bay Village, the island’s only resort.

Though St Lucia was badly hit by Hurricane Tomas in late October 2010 and you can still see the effects of the storm in roadside landslips, from a visitors’ point of view everything is back to normal.”

We are grateful to The Telegraph for being so factually correct.  Its worth noting that Le Sport, which is located just below Akasha has imported white sand for the beach and it looks stunning so you can get a white beach here in St Lucia. So there are many reasons to visit St Lucia for your holiday.
