  1. Instead of literary accolades, I would prefer to see MONETARY rewards for my country. We have a PM who does seem to be an accountant, nor an economist, and a tourism minister who seems to be more of a boaster than anything else.

    SLU is in dire need of sustainable industries (agriculture) more than SELLING off SLU to “neo-colonialists” in the guise of “investors”. So sad!

  2. No doubt st.lucia is beautiful but gad damm tings aren’t beautiful out here especially for the common man…Mr.PM we need a balance…stop the fronting!

  3. St Lucia belongs to foreigners. The people have nothing. Government after Government have only kept the people uneducated and poor whilst they secretly sell the country under its people. All the prime lands are being sold off and gated to keep the people out. Morne pimand you are next

  4. Hahaha I must lafff. Getting recognition and we show case thin crust roads.. by what criteria these people uses to give rewards. I know some does pay for Trip Advisor ratings.. where these tourist does pass to get to their hotels. Are they involved in the spectrum of evaluation or it’s base on the sales of tickets. Hahahah.

  5. How many ‘best island awards are there? Nearly every island in the Caribbean wins ‘the best’ award from a publication every year. There are so many magazines and publications giving out these awards its confusing if not trivial. Jamaica, Antigua, DR and several other islands often boast of winning ‘the’ best island award. Somebody should list all the best island awards there are.

  6. While I am.proud that St. Lucia has earned this esteemed title, I am heartbroken and disappointed with certain observations. Just last year, I took some birthday pictures along the road to Mt Pimard and it is now sold. Just this year, I visited the barracks at Vigie and this too is now being fenced. Presumably it has been sold too. Will I be able to walk through the tunnel to reach the beach on the other side? As a St Lucian, I watch as we win awards but, I am alienated from historical, therapeutic and picturesque spots in my own country. Can we please stop selling the island out? Locals also need to a sense of ownership and fun here. This is ridiculous.

  7. Congratulations to us but it can be even better if the roads are fixed damn.
    For those who asked on what criteria we eon. Again🙄🙄 We won on Beauty, what the tourists see beyond the terrible roads, beyond the corruptions happening.
    758 is Truly a gem out of the rest.
