St. Lucia Country Profile

Tourism is the main source of income for St Lucia and the industry is its biggest employer. The tropical eastern Caribbean island boasts beaches, mountains, exotic plants and the Qualibou volcano with its boiling sulphur springs. Most St Lucians are the descendants of African slaves, brought in by the British in the 19th century to work on sugar plantations. Although St Lucia is a former British colony, the French settled in the 17th century. Their influence lives on in the patois spoken in the country.
