St. Lucia is situated between Martinique and St. Vincent. It was discovered in 1502 by Christopher Columbus during his fourth trip to the Indies and was a prized possession for over 3 centuries. Coveted by both Britain and France, the island changed hands 14 times before settling down as a British Colony by the 1814 Treaty of Paris. St. Lucia became an independent nation in 1979 and it remains a member of the British Commonwealth.

St. Lucia is renowned as one of the most beautiful of the Caribbean Islands. It offers a wide contrast of landscapes ranging from one of the few remaining tropical rainforests of the region to the beautiful white and volcanic sand beaches. This is all dominated by the stunning view of the towering Pitons, the two lava cones which stand guard to St. Lucia's "walk-in" volcano, the Soufrière.
