The motto of this Caribbean island is "The Land, The People, The Light" and it is a fitting one, summing up St Lucia’s three most attractive qualities - the breathtaking tropical scenery, the welcoming inhabitants and the year round sunshine. Relatively small – St Lucia is a little over a third of the size of London – it is easy to reach the many activities available with water sports and rainforest hiking popular among tourists.

Sports Tours to St Lucia
While cricket is popular on the island, it doesn’t catch the public attention as in other parts of the Caribbean. That could change as in 2007 Darren Sammy became the first St Lucian to represent the West Indies at test level, posting figures that make him the team’s second best debutante ever. Until Sammy’s achievements really begin to bowl people over, football is likely to remain St Lucia’s dominant sport. Away from these two mainstays, netball is growing in popularity while rugby is also available.
- Sulfur Springs - One of the most popular attractions on the island, Sulfur Springs is a formerly active volcano where the dome has collapsed to form a seven-acre caldera. Although there has not been an eruption for over 200 years, sulfur still billows through cracks in the earth and boiling mud pits surround the area. Sulfur Springs also has the distinction of being the world's only drive-in volcano.
- Pigeon Island National Park - Formerly a hideaway for pirates and a military base, Pigeon Island is now arguably the most important historical site in St Lucia. Visitors will find many old buildings from colonial forts – the site of fighting between the French and the British – to American WW2 communication stations, and at the top of Signal Hill, spectacular views all the way to Martinique.
- The Pitons - The Pitons are two volcanic plugs – peaks of hardened magma – that are the second and third highest mountains in St Lucia, each rising more than 700 m directly from the sea. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, they are joined by the Piton Mitan ridge which offers stunning views across the bay.
- St. Lucia Botanical Garden - Also known as the Diamond Botanical Gardens, it isn’t just the many species of tropical plant that make this such an attraction. The garden is also known for its natural hot springs and mineral waters, reputedly used by King Louis XVI's troops for its medicinal qualities. Visitors can sample the alleged healing properties for themselves thanks to a public baths area.
