Made of a very special material
Saint Lucia is an unspoiled natural paradise, which is mainly covered in mountainous hinterland with over 19,000 hectares of deep green rainforest. With its majestic twin peaks Petit and Gros Piton, the island has one of the most beautiful and eye-catching profiles of the Caribbean.
More than 700 meters high, the two volcanic cones protrude from the sea, shaped like sugar loafs, covered in velvety green and since 2004 UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just like them and the highest mountain of Mount Gimie at 950 meters, the entire island is made of a very special material: Millions of years ago, it experienced its big bang when lava was thrown up from the depths of the sea, cooled and landed.
E still seethes today s in the underground. The volcanic cones of the Pitons , natural mineral baths and the bubbling sulfur springs of the only drive-in crater in the Caribbean, the Sulfur Springs , refer to the volcanic island Vita.
On this fertile ground thrives a true garden of Eden, with wild orchids, frangipani and jasmine. Hummingbirds are buzzing around, parrots screeching high in the crowns of the redwood trees, while a few floors below, well hidden in the giant ferns, the frogs croak … No wonder that nature lovers are thrilled with Saint Lucia.
