One of the more mountainous of the Windward islands, Saint Lucia is 238 square miles and is shaped like a mango - about 27 miles long and 14 miles at its widest.

The island is blessed with fertile volcanic soil and grows a vast supply of fruits and vegetables.

Saint Lucia is one of the leading banana exporters in the Caribbean (12 varieties of banana are grown on our verdant hillsides) and has a population of 140,000.

Saint Lucia's capital city of Castries is in the northwest; the famed fishing village of Soufriθre is to the southwest; and Vieux Fort, the island's second-largest port, is perched at the southern tip.

Saint Lucia's climate is mild, with almost constant northeast trade winds. The mean temperature is 79 degrees Fahrenheit. June to November is the rainy season.

Saint Lucia is an independent island country in the eastern Caribbean Sea. It lies between Martinique and Saint Vincent, about 386 kilometres north of Venezuela.

St. Lucia is one of the Windward Islands, a chain within the larger archipelago of the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies.

The island, with its fine natural harbor at Castries, was contested between England and France throughout the 17th and early 18th centuries (changing possession 14 times); it was finally ceded to the UK in 1814.

Self government was granted in 1967 and independence in 1979.
