  • Tourism in St. Lucia
  • The tourism industry is vital to the economic well-being of the people and nation of St. Lucia. Bananas are still the number one source of capital, yet tourism is expected to surpass this export as the banana market becomes more competitive. The influx of overseas tourists reaches it peak in the dry months from January to April.
  • It is easy to see why St. Lucia is such a popular Caribbean getaway, with its white sand beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, tropical sunsets, and the rich, exotic plant life of the Botanical Gardens and rainforest. Visitors love to hike to the forest waterfalls or up the peaks of the twin Pitons, St. Lucia's most striking landmark. The volcanic Sulphur Springs and drive-in volcano are other major attractions.
  • St. Lucia is surrounded by the warm waters of the Caribbean Seas and some of the worlds finest coral reefs. Dive enthusiasts flock to St. Lucia for world-class Scuba and snorkeling among the reefs teeming with tropical fish and marine life. The island is home to an incredible number of St. Lucia resorts and Caribbean villas to attract vacationers. Island tours, water sports, yacht charters, deep sea fishing, golf, jazz clubs, and lazing on the soft sandy beaches are just a few of the pleasures to be had by St. Lucia guests.
  • St. Lucia tourists also enjoy the many quaint villages and the Capital of Castries for fine island dining, eclectic shops, and authentic St. Lucia nightlife. The rich history of indigenous Arawak Indians, African émigrés, and British & French colonists can be explored at Fort Rodney located in Pigeon Island National Park. The park itself is home to a diverse ecology of local St. Lucia wildlife.
  • The majority of St. Lucia tourists visit St. Lucia as part of a multi-island Caribbean cruise. Most of their limited time is spent in Castries (the capital city), Marigot Bay, and Gros Islet, all great shopping spots. St. Lucia is also a very popular destination for romantic island weddings and this is growing industry in itself. Almost 3,500 couples were married on the island in the year 2006.
