See the Pitons and More
When you first glimpse St. Lucia, with its lush inland mountains, its misty waterfalls, and its soaring Pitons -- the famous pair of volcanic peaks that rise dramatically 2,000 feet from the sea -- you'll think you're in the South Pacific. Stretching across the entire island is a 19,000-acre rain forest that is home to orchids, bromeliads, ferns, bamboos, and a variety of bird life that places it among the finest bird-watching destinations in the West Indies.
ISLANDS editor Adrienne Egolf recently visited St. Lucia and saw all the natural and romantic wonders of the island, from the Pitons, of course, to the Edge Restaurant in Rodney Bay Village. To see photos from Adrienne's trip, click here.
