Saint Lucia is located in the Caribbean. The island belongs to the Lesser Antilles. St. Lucia is located between Martinique in the north (which belongs to France) and another island state, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. St. Lucia is 43 kilometers long and 22 kilometers wide at its widest point. The east coast faces the Atlantic Ocean and is more exposed to the wind. This makes it more rugged than the west coast, which faces the Caribbean Sea.
The island consists of volcanic rock. The highest mountain of the island is Mount Gimie with a height of 950 meters. It is located in the southwest of the island, as well as two other elevations: Gros Piton and Petit Piton (Big and Small Piton) are two no longer active volcanoes and a popular photo subject. They are 770 and 743 meters high.
There are several small rivers. The longest are Cul de Sac (which is French and means dead end) and Canelles.
