About Santa Lucia and Places to Visit
Santa Lucia is a small Caribbean paradise dotted with mountains and wide jungle. The island is one of the most popular destinations in the Lesser Antilles for its beautiful volcanic landscape filled with small fishing villages, dreamy beaches, luxury hotels and resorts. The island has an area of 620 km² and a population of about 160,000 inhabitants. The country’s economy largely depends on the export of bananas, cocoa, coconut oil, sugarcane, rum, molasses and vegetables. Castries is the largest city and capital of the island, where most of the population lives. It is also one of the first stops for many visitors.
The black sand on many of Santa Lucia’s beaches is a reminder of the island’s volcanic past, but it also has beautiful white sand beaches. The entire west coast of Santa Lucia is surrounded by corals, turtles, sharks and many other inhabitants of the underwater world. There are 20 species of whales on the island, including pilot and humpback. The island is also considered an ideal destination for families, as honeymooners and seniors alike will be delighted with a variety of activities such as diving, surfing, golfing and hiking.
Hewanorra International Airport at Vieux Fort (UVF) is the main major airport located on the southern headland of the island.
