Tourism in Saint Lucia
Saint Lucia, an island in the Caribbean islands, has a relatively large and lucrative tourism industry. Due to the relatively small land area of the country, most of the governmental promoting is performed by the state operated Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, led by Executive Chairperson Agnes Francis.
Saint Lucia tends to be popular due to its tropical weather and scenery and for its large number of beaches and resorts.
Although cruises and beaches are what draws most tourists to Saint Lucia, other attractions include:
- The Pitons, two volcanic plugs rising more than 700 m directly from the sea that form part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
- Sulphur Springs - Located in Soufrière, it is the world's only drive-in volcano.
- St. Lucia Botanical Gardens - This botanical garden has a wide variety of plant species, and a sulfur waterfall.
