Saint Lucia Yacht Charter
Saint Lucia is part of the Lesser Antilles emerging like a virescent monolith from the Caribbean. It is an independent country and a member of the British Commonwealth. The island population is 181,000 and covers an area of 620 square kilometres. Saint Lucia was originally populated by Carib Indians. Saint Lucia is trully like two islands in one noted for its oodles of small and luxurious resorts that drip color and flair. In the south of Saint Lucia, Soufriere is at the heart of a gorgeous region of old plantations, hidden beaches and the geologic wonder of the impossibly photogenic Pitons.
The island is steep with very lush tropical vegetation. The scenery, especially near Soufrière is dominated by the dramatic presence of the twin peaks, Gros Piton and Petit Piton, 615 metres and 750 metres tall.
While other Caribbean islands lay claim to equally beautiful beaches, Saint Lucia will tempt you out of the sun-lounger and into the ocean with its bountiful marine life and exquisite reefs, which are a playground for scuba divers and snorkelers. St Lucia’s waters are also prime for kite-boarding and windsurfing, thanks to the aforementioned trade winds. The climate in Saint Lucia is tropical, moderated by northeast trade winds, dry season January to April, rainy season May to August.
