“The Land, The Light, The People”
A fond welcome to locals and visitors!
When you arrive in St Lucia it will not take you long to see why the island became known as the ‘Helen of the West Indies’ – and why the French and British empires spent almost two centuries fighting to possess her.
On caribbean1st we refer to St Lucia as our ‘Island of Balance’. This is because St Lucia can boast an incomparable balance between unspoilt natural splendour and calm on one side equaled by productivity and frenzied motion on the other- and both working together quite harmoniously.
Look one way and see its beauty and feel its tranquillity, look the other way and see its industriousness and feel its vibrancy.
St Lucia is an island under constant development and yet so many areas remain untouched, unspoilt and simply beautiful.
St Lucia has it all. Enjoy…
History of St. Lucia
Sons and daughters of St. Lucia,
Love the land that gave us birth,
Land of beaches, hills and valleys,
Fairest isle of all the earth.
Wheresoever you may roam,
Love, oh love your island home.
Gone the times when nations battled
For this ‘Helen of the West,
Gone the days when strife and discord
Dimmed her children’s toil and rest.
Dawns at last a brighter day,
Stretches out a glad new way.
May the good Lord bless our island,
Guard her sons from woe and harm!
May our people live united,
Strong in soul and strong in arm!
Justice, Truth and Charity,
Our ideal for ever be!
