Saint Lucia lies at approximately 13º north of the equator in the middle of Windward Islands chain. Our nearest neighbours are Martinique 21 miles to the north and St. Vincent 26 miles to the south; both are easily seen on a clear day.
The island lies within the Eastern Standard Time Zone which is 4 hours behind London (GMT) and 1 hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time during the winter months and the same as EST during Daylight Savings Time.
Saint Lucia is 27 miles long and 14 miles wide at its widest point with an area of 238 square miles (616 sq. kms.). The island boasts a great variety of terrain but is dominated by the interior mountains. The highest point is Mount Gimie which is 3,120 feet above sea level. Easterly trade winds blow in off of the Atlantic and are forced up over the mountains; the air cools and drops its moisture creating large areas of central rain forests. The island is volcanic in origin and boasts active volcanic features, the Sulphur Springs, and the Caribbean’s most famous landmarks, the Pitons, as majestic remnants of the geologic past.
The island’s population is approximately 170,000 with the greatest concentration found in the capital, Castries, and to the north of the city.
English is the official language and is spoken well by nearly everyone. Most residents also speak a French based Creole Patois.
