St Lucia Wins Half of USA Today's Reader's Choice Caribbean Tourism Awards
"10Best set out to find the best resorts, restaurants, beaches, attractions, golf courses and dive sites in the region, and to do so, we asked a panel of Caribbean travel experts to select 20 nominees in each category. For the past four weeks, our readers have been voting daily for their favorites, and the results are in."
St Lucia won three out of the six categories:
"Best Caribbean Resort - Jade Mountain, St. Lucia
Located above Anse Chastanet Beach on St. Lucia's southwestern coast, Jade Mountain is perhaps most famous for its 24 infinity pool sanctuaries and five sky jacuzzi suites overlooking the majestic Pitons and the Caribbean sea.
Best Caribbean Beach - Anse Chastanet, St. Lucia
Those lucky enough to be sprawled out on the sands of Anse Chastanet Beach on St. Lucia enjoy stellar views of the Piton Mountains and snorkeling just 10 yards from the beach.
Best Caribbean Attraction - La Soufriere Drive-In Volcano, St. Lucia
The Sulphur Springs of St. Lucia rank as the hottest and most active geothermal area in the Lesser Antilles – an island attraction that proudly calls itself the only drive-in volcano in the Caribbean. Hot springs, mud pools and steam vents dominate the landscape."
Jade Mountain Club also placed fifth in the Best Restaurant in the Caribbean category.
