The beautiful Caribbean island of Saint Lucia gained its independence from Britain on this day in 1979.

Located in the eastern Caribbean Sea in the West Indies, the only sovereign nation to be named after a woman is known for its breathtaking beaches, natural rainforests, mouthwatering dishes and its overly hospitable people.

Weather you find yourself in the town of Soufrière, where you can take relaxing and soothing volcanic mud baths or Rodney Bay, which comes to life at night with its several hangout spots, you definitely won’t be spoiled for choice when you visit.

And before we forget, The Pitons, which are two conspicuous volcanic peaks on the island are a sight to behold. Sulphur Springs, which is also a very popular tourist spot boasts the world’s only drive-in volcano.

To celebrate their independence day, Face2Face Africa shares with you some photos of the beautiful Caribbean island. Enjoy!
