The pristine and charming beauty of Saint Lucia
Located in the volcanic region of the ocean, Saint Lucia has impressive natural landscapes. These include spectacular mountain ranges made of volcanic activity, huge forests, verdant meadows and countless colorful flower gardens.
The highest point is Mount Gimie (950m), and the most famous is the two mountains located closely to each other with the same name Piton (about 600m high).
Saint Lucia has more than 20 hot water pools in which the temperatures can get as high as 300 oC. The color of the sea there is very strange thanks to the mixture of black, brown and yellow.
North of the island is Rodney Bay with many modern amenities. In the south, Soufrière is the centerpiece where you can have a chance to explore ancient plantations, private beaches and the wonders of Piton.
The impressive twin mountains of Piton
The tourist destination in Saint Lucia welcomes thousands of travelers every year thanks mainly to the twin mountains named as Gros Piton and Petit Piton. One of the most interesting travel experiences there is to take a climbing tour to the mount. This trip is quite long, lasting about 6 hours so you have to prepare carefully. Although it will make you exhausted after reaching the peak, you will then get wonderful relaxing moments. Fresh air and wild landscapes makes you feel as if you are flying in the sky.
