About Saint Lucia
One of the Windward Islands of the West Indies’ Lesser Antilles, Saint Lucia is nestled halfway down the Eastern Caribbean archipelago.

This mango-shaped island, which is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, is fringed with soft sandy beaches, golden in the north, and dark silver in the volcanic south west, where Jade Mountain is located.
