St Lucia, Caribbean

St Lucia offers scuba diving holidays with some of the best shore diving in  the Caribbean and a choice of luxury and multi sport options with stunning landscapes and beautiful beaches. Located towards the centre of the Windward Islands chain at the eastern edge of the Caribbean Sea, the tear drop-shaped island is some 27 miles long. The south of the island is domininated by the majestic Piton twin volcanic peaks. Here you can stay in a local, boutique style or superb, top quality luxury hotels with diving on your doorstep.


Diving
The marine reserve at Anse Chastanet offers some of the best shore diving in the Caribbean and is located midway along the sheltered west coast. This is part of the government protected reserve, the Soufriere Marine Management Area and the twin peaks, the petit and Gros Pitons to the south. Varied dives are available from shallow coral spurs and sandy gullies to sudden, dramatic breaks down sheer walls. The reef starts just beyond the water's edge at Anse Chastenet, with a remarkable ecosystem offering an amazing profusion of unusual tropical marine life in 20 to 140 feet of calm, clear water. The reef is home to more than 150 different species of fish. In the shallow areas keep your eyes open for peacock flounders, octopus, needle fish and turtles. Or drop down a little deeper over dense coral growth to see puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters and even sea horses. The wreck of the Lesleen M is covered with sea fans and thousands of soldier fish. There is also excellent night diving.
