Separated by only 100 miles and a favorite of honeymooners, Barbados and St. Lucia couldn't be more different. Known for its sophisticated resorts, British style, and warm inviting hospitality, Barbados is an island of broad vistas, sweeping seascapes, and acres of sugar cane. Mountainous St. Lucia is covered by rainforest that makes it one of the greenest islands in the Caribbean, and it also has vibrant coral reefs that draw scuba divers from all over the world. The island's upscale resorts and simple inns offer a wide range of experiences. The two islands are linked by frequent air service, making the short hop in about 20 minutes.
