Saint Lucia holidays Holiday rentals - villas & apartments to rent in St Lucia

Saint Lucia is one of the jewels in the Eastern Caribbean. Surrounded by palm fringed coral sandy beaches, soaring volcanic peaks, lush rainforests and spectacular waterfalls means St Lucia has the edge over many Caribbean islands. It is famous for its pair of dramatically sculptured mountains, the Pitons, on its west coast but also for the beautiful volcanic beaches, dive sites and quaint fishing villages. It is also the only Caribbean island where you can drive through a volcano! The caldera of the Soufrière Volcanic Center is fascinating with hot spring and natural mud baths - not to be missed.
