Saint Lucia is located in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the Lesser Antilles, Saint Lucia is located north/northeast of the island of Saint Vincent, northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique.

Travelers can find guided tours through pristine geography, and water enthusiasts enjoy surfing on the southern tip of the island. The island is a blend of French, British and Creole cultures, which influence the food and much of the merchandise. Saint Lucia offers a number of nature preserves, including the fishing town of Soufriere, Grand Piton, Mount Soufriere and Maria Islands.
