    Product Description:

    This insider’s guide reveals the island’s best-kept secrets, so you can feel like a “regular”, even on your first trip, and find activities for the whole family!

    • Find the best beaches, away from the crowds...
    • Learn the stories behind the sights
    • Plan your holiday before you leave home - and make sure you pack the right stuff!
    • Benefit from local knowledge
    • Make the most of your hard-earned vacation
    • This book is small enough to fit in your pocket

    There is so much that commends Saint Lucia as a holiday destination: the world’s only drive-on volcano, romantic beaches of both brown and white sand, unspoilt rainforest and some of the best scuba diving in the region.

    Her famous Pitons are a UNESCO World Heritage site and have been named as one of the world’s top five must-see spectacles, while her dramatic land and seascapes continue to provide ideal settings for films and reality shows.

    This full-colour book includes details of:

    • 27 beautiful beaches to relax on;
    • 55 engaging attractions;
    • 19 fun activities to keep you out of trouble!
    • Lists of major tour operators with contact details;
    • Summaries of the major scuba diving sites around the island;

    This book doesn't include details of hotels or restaurants - because Trip Advisor is the best place for such information. Instead, it's your personal tour guide to some of the best that Saint Lucia has to offer.

    Plan ahead by reading it in the departure lounge or on the plane, or take each day as it comes – the choice is yours. With maps, addresses and contact information for many of the island’s tour guides and activity providers, your only challenge will be deciding which of her many wonders to leave until next time!
