St Lucia

Warm, sandy white beaches, soothing waves, and friendly locals aren’t all this extraordinary island has to offer. Tourists can also snorkel in St. Lucia’s pristine waters, explore abandoned sugar plantations, soak in the volcanic mud baths of Soufrièreand, or watch a live sea turtle hatch at dusk. For the more adventurous among you, there’s always zip-lining through lush rainforests or riding ATVs through the countryside. And, while you’re there, don’t forget to sample the authentic island food.

FUN FACT: St. Lucia is the only sovereign nation named for a woman.
