St Lucia is an exotic island for holidays with all its freshness, serenity and adventure opportunities. Located at 13 53’ N, it, neighboring Barbados and Dominican Republic, surprisingly, exhibits a very soothing weather due to its windward location. The moisture laden trade-winds maintain a fantastic atmosphere on the island making your St Lucia holidays a year round attraction.

Spread in an area of 238 sq mile, this 27 mile long and 14 miles wide island has a total population of 150,000 with 65,000 work force. The people prefer English as their first language however Creole, a local dialect, is the second language for the locals. In fact preservation of the language has encouraged many radio and TV stations to broadcast shows in the dialect and preserve the language for as long as possible. The language is gaining popularity because of the government’s preference and support.

History and Demography

St Lucia holidays will remind you of the bygone era. This island was a major bone of contention between the British and the French. It changed possession for a total of 14 times. The island was first inhabited by Arawak Indians, who were later displaced by the Caribs, French and then the British. St Lucian holidays, thus, exhibit a great amount of aristocratic British architecture and let you settle in the erstwhile colonial era.

The country gained independence on Feb 22, 1979 and has an eclectic blend of Africans, Indo-Caribbean, French, British and Irish minorities. There are few minorities of Chinese, Syrians and Lebanese as well. The majority of St Lucian is Roman Catholic with the remaining practicing other variations of Christianity. The migration is mostly to the Anglophone countries with UK inhabiting the maximum number of St Lucian in the world.
