Readers of LawPundit : St. Lucia (Saint Lucia)

Google Analytics provides us with a geographic map of the world showing the locations of our readers. Many of these locations are not well known to us, so that we look them up online, which has turned out to be an enriching educational experience. Hence, we will feature various reader locations periodically at LawPundit as a special service to our readers.

A LawPundit reader recently visited our blog from the volcanic Caribbean island of St. Lucia (Saint Lucia), the "Helen of the West Indies" in the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean Sea (map), 26 miles north of St. Vincent and 21 miles south of Martinique (see maps and explanations at Windward Islands and Leeward Islands at Wikipedia). Castries is the capital city. Saint Lucia became independent in 1979 - here is the flag:

St. Lucia is an independent member state of the British Commonwealth with "a legal system based on English common law and the 'Code Napoleon'." See these links for geography, history, religion, people, national symbols and expressions, economy and government of Saint Lucia. The official language is English, but many St. Lucians speak a French patois (creole).

St. Lucia has all the hallmarks of a real paradise whose tourism industry has recently specialized particularly in vacation packages for honeymooners and couples.

The Inn on the Bay (Marigot Bay), St. Lucia, writes:

""The most beautiful Bay in the Caribbean"...That's how author James A Michener once described beautiful Marigot Bay in St. Lucia!"

Lonely Planet writes about the Malgretout Waterfall:

"South of SoufriƩre at Malgretout is a quiet, undeveloped beach and mineral waterfall. Not only does this unfrequented waterfall have a beautiful Eden-like setting, but visitors are allowed to shower in its warm volcanic waters - which you cannot do at the more touristy waterfall at Diamond Botanical Gardens."

The Sandals Regency St. Lucia Golf Resort & Spa (hotel for couples only, 9 holes) and the St. Lucia Golf Resort & Country Club have golf courses which are a luscious green, as befits an island paradise.

It looks good. They can invite us any time, thank you.
