St. Lucia Wisdom
  • "Di ola di moon di brighta di shine".
    Age brings wisdom.
  • "A crab never forget he hole".
    There's no place like home.
  • "All fish does bite but shark does get di blame".
    Those with a history of bad behaviour are always the first ones accused.
5 Must-See / Must-Do Things
  1. The twin pitons (Gros Piton and Petit Piton) - striking cone shaped peaks rising from the ocean.
  2. Drive-in volcano, the only one in the world. Take a therapeutic mud bath in volcanic ash.
  3. Zip-lining. Very lush, green jungles of St Lucia hosts fun zip-line locations and monkeys and birds to view.
  4. Cocoa plantation farms visit one and learn and taste where chocolate really comes from.
  5. Beautiful beaches and palm trees against the calm Caribbean sea. Lots of water sports and turtle watching (Grande Anse beach) also on the island.
St. Lucia Beaches
  1. Reduit Beach
    This beach has five miles of white sand on Rodney Bay. Reduit is the place for a long stroll by the shore and a swim in calm waters. One of the most popular beaches on the island, it is decorated by the Rex St. Lucian, Papillon and the Royal St. Lucian hotels and hosts lots of restaurants and vendors renting water-sport equipment and lounge chairs.
  2. Jalousie Beach
    A stunning setting between the twin Gros and Petit Piton volcanic peaks, plus white sand and clear water make this beach south of Soufrière a favorite spot for tanning. Snorkelers and scuba divers turn out for the adventures to be had at the 1,800-foot drop-off at the base of the Pitons.
  3. Anse Chastanet
    A fav for divers and snorkelers because of the sharp drop-off, coral reefs, sea walls and opportunity to view the colorful ocean life without having to visit deeper waters by boat. The natural sand proves the volcanic origins of the island.
  4. Pigeon Island National Park
    On the north end of the island, this beach is tranquil and less busy. Tanning, swimming, lunch at either of two bistros, a visit to a mini-museum and a climb to a vantage point for views of the historic Fort Rodney ruins and the distant Martinique could make your adventure here.
  5. Grande Anse
    Lovely beach north of Dennery, part of a new national park, a mile long and set against cliffs in an area that was once a plantation. This is the location for turtle watching of endangered leatherbacks, the largest of sea turtles, heaving themselves out of the water and onto the beach to lay their eggs.
St. Lucia Peculiar Christmas Tradition
"As with everything else in St. Lucia, Christmas has its own peculiar traditions. In sharp contrast to carols, which encourage peace and goodwill to all men, you’ll be treated to the sounds of bamboo-cannons shattering the quietness of cool December evenings. This is called bamboo bursting. Traditionally beginning November 2 and lasting until December end, echoes of explosive sounds are heard over the hills. It’ll often begin by sundown and last deep into the night. Participants in this traditional folk method of welcoming Christmas are primarily young boys. With next-to-harmless, non-ballistic cannons, each team tries to outdo each other in achieving the loudest 'booms'". (From Tropicaltraveller.com)
St. Lucia Joke
Three fellas - a Bajan, a Trini and a Jamaican - are trying to sneak into the stadium at the recently held Carifta Games in the Bahamas. They have no spectators' tickets and are not athletes. As they stand around figuring out their move, they see a man walk up to the gate, and shout: "Carl Douglas. St Lucia. Shot-put". The man opens his bag to show his shot-put ball and is immediately ushered in. So the fellas decide to "try a t'ing". The Jamaican grabs a young tree, takes his pocketblade and strips it of all leaves, and walks up to the gate and shouts: "John Moss. Jamaica. Javelin". He shows his stick and is ushered in. Excited by his partner's success, the Trini grabs the cover of a paint can and walks up to the gate: "Tony Singh. Trinidad. Discus." He flashes the cover in front of the attendant who ushers him in. Together on the inside, they remember the Bajan, and started to curse themselves for not helping him with a ploy. They turn around and spotted the Bajan on the outside. Bajan is really at a loss. He looks all around him and sees nothing that could get him in. He then looks again at a fence across the street, has an idea, walks across the street, painstakingly rips off a piece of the barbed wire, rolls it, puts it under his arm, approaches the gate and says to the attendant: "Seymour Skeete. Barbados. Fencing!"
Geography

Being one of the most mountainous, and like many Caribbean islands it is also volcanic, but this one boasts a drive-in volcano. The highest point is Mount Gimie at 950 metres (3120 ft) above sea level. But the island's most famos landmarks are two other mountains, the Pitons.

Brief History

The first European camp on the volcanic island of Saint Lucia was started in the beginning of 1600s by the Dutch, at what is now Vieux Fort. In 1605, the English ship, the Olive Branch, was blown off-course on its way to Guyama and started a settlement on Saint Lucia. Shortly after they fled due to diseases and conflict with the Caribs. The French claimed the island in 1635, but the Enlish started the the next European settlement in 1639. In 1643 a French expedition established a permanent settlement on the island and began to develop the land for the cultivation fo sugar cane. After the Seven Years' War ended between Great Brittain and the France-Spanish coalition the Treaty of Paris on 10 February 1763 confirmed an exchange of colonial territories.

In 1664 the governor of St Kitts' son claimed Saint Lucia for England. In 1666 the French resumed control of the island.

In 1795 an army of Saint Lucian freedom fighters led by Victor Hugues defeated a battalion of British troops and thereafter a united front of freed slaves and freedom fighters known asthe Brigands forced out out the British army and every white slave-owner from the island. Many battles insued until it joined the West Indies Federation when the colony was dissolved. In 1967 Saint Lucia became one of the six members of the West Indies Associated States, with internal self-government. In 1979 it gained full independence.

Caribbean Tip of the Day
On many Caribbean islands English is not the main language. Depending on which island you're planning to visit download either a French/English, Dutch/English or Spanish/English dictionary on your phone before you arrive. Locals appreciate the effort and may just give you better service if you try.
