The island of Saint Lucia lies on about mid-way along the arc of islands that make the Eastern border of the Caribbean Sea. Saint Lucia is about 2,400 km or just under 1,500 miles south of Florida at 14oN. To to the south is the island of St. Vincent and to the north of us is the island Martinique – a Department of France. Barbados is our next closest neighbour, lying just over 100miles to the South-East of Saint Lucia off the main arc of islands.

Arriving by Air
If you’re flying, flights are available from a growing number of international and Caribbean airports. There are more than a dozen airlines to choose from for your flight to Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) or the smaller George Charles Airport (SLU)
Arriving by Sea
If cruising is your thing, then many cruise lines and inter-island ferries dock daily at Port Castries and Soufriere.
And for those who travel by yacht, Saint Lucia boasts one of the Caribbean’s most popular marinas – the IGY Rodney Bay Marina, end of the annual Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) and start-point for the world ARC. Additionally, most of the beautiful sheltered bays have designated mooring areas where you can safely drop anchor.
