Less-Visited Treasures on the Island of Saint Lucia

Most who visit Saint Lucia end up in the southern part of this Caribbean island, visiting all the usual signature sights: mud baths, drive-in volcano, and the Pitons. Instead, I chose to stay in the north and the less visited eastern side of the island where there were a host of more under-the-radar treasures: quaint fishing villages with brightly painted facades and fishing nets draped beside the pier; low-key hiking trails that snaked through the rain forest; and stretches of beaches where mostly locals hung out with their families on weekends. This short YouTube video offers a window into my week on this sprawling, mountainous island.
