    Saint Lucia is a Caribbean island which truly lives up to its travel brochure descriptions: an island of breathtaking beauty with miles of magnificent coastline, panoramic mountain views, lush vegetation and favorable climate. Its people, history, language and culture are a blend of the rich heritage of Africa, France and England.

    Saint Lucia is also famous for producing two Nobel Laureates and for staging an annual Jazz Festival that has become the talk of the entire world. In addition, Saint Lucia is a tourist paradise hosting more than 700,000 visitors every year. In this comprehensive guide, updated with all new photographs, Guy Ellis provides a profile of this "Helen of the West." A journalist for more than four decades, he edited the island's leading newspaper, the Voice, for 20 years before moving on to start a newspaper of his own, The Saint Lucia Mirror. In 2003, Ellis was honored by Her Majesty the Queen as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to journalism. As one who remains in touch with every development that takes place on the island, he is well qualified to write this guide to his mother country.

    Product Description:
    At long last, ITMB is finally releasing our updated travel map of St. Lucia. As before, the scale used fills one side of the sheet. We have added some new touristic material, based on our visit to the island last December. We have included an inset map of Castries, the capital, noting, among other things, the cruise ship terminals (there are two) and the inter-island ferry terminal. That is important because St. Lucia is now linked to neighbouring Martinique by a scheduled ferry service and it is very convenient for visitors wishing to enhance their visit by adding a day trip to Martinique. For this reason, we have added a full-page map of Martinique to the reverse side of the sheet. The ferry goes to Fort-de-France, the capital, and the map includes an inset of the city, showing where the ferry docks. Martinique, with its French heritage, is more exotic than most English-speaking Caribbean countries, but is friendly and somehow different. It is considered an extension of France and thus of the European Union, so uses the Euro. Although the common language is French (or a variety of it), English is well-understood. Cars are readily available for hire and road conditions are good. The island even boasts a motorway, going to the island s south coast. Both islands are important Caribbean travel destinations, with resort hotels concentrated on Marigot Bay and Rodney Bay in St. Lucia and in the Pont du Bout peninsula of Martinique. The map has a double-sided cover for ease of marketing.
