What to do in St. Lucia

St. Lucia is for lovers. The tourist board of this eastern Caribbean nation should co-opt Virginia’s long-standing slogan, because the majority of vacationers here come for the romance. Most resorts are far from the main drags of Castries and Gros Islet; they boast oceanfront locations; and the list of organized activities is skimpy, since most guests prefer to loll on the beach, eat, and, well, be romantic. The Pitons, a pair of mountains that jut up from the sea in the southern part of the island, are a national symbol and the most photographed site in the country. Legend has it that snakes were introduced on the Pitons to punish escaped slaves, but recent science suggests the reptiles are endemic.
