Welcome to Cricinfo St Lucia

Dear reader

Hon. Philip J. Pierre © St Lucia Tourist Board
We invite you to explore Simply Beautiful St Lucia throughout the pages of this site that we have put together with Cricinfo.com. We seek to provide the answers to your questions on St Lucia, and then a bit more. We want to share with you all the things that you can look forward to when you visit us beauty, history, culture, cuisine, attractions, special activities and our warm friendly people.

Of course not to be missed is cricket. St Lucia is proud of its superb modern facilities, which we are continuously improving. Stadium capacity at the Beausejour Cricket Ground will be increased to meet the demands of 2007, and recently we installed floodlights and had the historic experience of hosting our first day/night match.

There is so much to see and do in St Lucia. The Pitons, in Soufriere, have been designated a World Heritage site and are not to be missed. There are rainforests, heritage tours, and all of the usual outdoor sporting activities, including water sports and golf.

This year, through our Sustainable Tourism Development Programme, we will highlight the unique natural and cultural assets of various communities throughout the island. We are working on product improvements in these selected communities and many stimulating special events and activities will be on offer. So I encourage you to also partake in these unique community-based activities.

We hope we can entice you to visit St Lucia a warm St Lucia welcome awaits you. We promise to make your stay enjoyable with superb cricket, exquisite cuisine, breathtaking natural attractions, and unique community activities.

I look forward to seeing you in Simply Beautiful St Lucia.

Minister for Commerce, Tourism, Investment and Consumer Affairs
