Saint Lucia wins “Best Island in the Caribbean”

From the magnificent volcanic peaks to the lush rainforest, from exotic beaches to spectacular reefs St. Lucia’s unspoilt beauty amazes the eye and soothes the spirit. Nestled in the Heart of the Lesser Antilles, St. Lucia has earned a prestigious reputation and is gaining recognition on the international front, not only for its natural charm but also for the high quality of its tourism offer.

The latest accolade comes from the US-based Global Traveler that awarded St. Lucia with the title of “Best Island in the Caribbean”. Boasting a circulation of over 105,000 readers, Global Traveler is available across the United States and focuses on business and lifestyle travel interests. The magazine’s awards were launched last year to recognize the best in leisure travel destinations, cruises, tour operators and resorts.

Responding to news of the most recent recognition, Director of Tourism for St.Lucia Louis Lewis says, “This is a testament that Saint Lucia is indeed a world class tourism destination and that the one-of-a-kind vacation experiences we deliver through our unique hotels and resorts, restaurants, sites and attractions and other soft adventure excursion partners, truly excites and lifts the senses of the thousands of visitors annually who grace our shores.”
