I’m not sure if you have watched the romantic, reality show The Bachelor before but I’m currently hooked on the UK version on Channel 5 with Gavin Henson, the Welsh international rugby player whose embarking on his quest to find the woman of his dreams.
As an old romantic I love to watch how he goes about wooing the girls who compete for his affections in order to ultimately become his girlfriend. However I was more excited to find that some of the episodes were shot in the Caribbean on the gorgeous island of St Lucia.
Now as a lover of all things Caribbean I won’t hesitate to tell you that St Lucia as a wedding or honeymoon destination oozes romance with a capital R, thanks to its natural landscape of waterfalls, rainforest and majestic Piton Mountains. But more importantly the tourist industry has only begun to flock there in recent years so it’s not become oversaturated and its become increasingly important to preserve the natural charm of the island and its people, which Gavin definitely appreciated, just listen to what he had to say.
So if you are looking for an unspoilt island – St Lucia is definitely one to consider and with five direct flights a week from London it’s very easy to get to. But don’t take my word for it – just take a look at what you could be enjoying.
