Arguably one of the prettiest and most sociable islands in the whole of the Caribbean, Saint Lucia has so much more to offer than luxurious beach resorts and glamorous honeymoon getaways. It's an island with a pulse, so take some time to relax on the beach by all means but don't miss out on all that Saint Lucia has to offer. The perfect destination to exchange your wedding vows, it has some of the most unique ceremony settings in the world. Equally with so much to see and do it's a great place for family holidays too, with some fantastic family-friendly resorts.
From both Anse Chastenet and nearby Soufriere you can get glorious views of the island's most famous and unmistakable landmark, the Pitons. These two spiked volcanic mountains really set the landscape of Saint Lucia apart from its neighbours.
