This island is lush with tropical rain forests and fauna. St. Lucia’s most well-known site is the emerald green twin peaks, the Pitons. These two heavily forested summits overshadow the deep green-blue waters and powder white sands. This top hotspot is a prime location for attractive views and the most romantic settings.
Tip: beachwear is recommended only on the beaches; locals appreciate more conservative attire in town. When out at night men should wear collared shirts and long pants, and women in dresses or long pants as well.
