You’ve seen the pictures—even if you don’t know where this mysterious coastline is or what it’s called. Two green mountains, lush hills, golden beaches, and dark-blue water. This is Saint Lucia (pronounced LOO-sha), an island nation in the Caribbean’s Lesser Antilles. For over 300 years, Saint Lucia was a highly contested island—trading hands between the French and the British before becoming an independent member of the Commonwealth in 1979.
