St. Lucia defies comparison in it's unique splendor. It is not only striking but lush in a South Seas kind of way. Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but can the Bahamas come close in this fashion? I think not. Close runner-ups I have visited are Dominica and the rain forest on the top of Martinique.
I never fished the blue waters of these islands, but chose to explore Lucia's mangrove areas for snook and tarpon. I was never able to get to where I thought the Lucian pot of gold sat in the saline forests.
