If not Hawaii, then I would suggest the beautiful Caribbean island of St Lucia, often referred to as the most Hawaiian of the Caribbean islands because of similar attributes such as rainforest and the Piton volcano peaks. The island of St Lucia is a colorful mixture of history, culture and influences left over from the French and British who fought over this island for nearly 150 years before finally ceded to the British in 1814.
Today visitors have the opportunity to visit fortresses and relics left behind from these battles including the former British Officers mess at Fort Rodney and Pigeon Island National Park, Morne Fortune a key battle site and Marigot Bay which was once a wartime base but now a haven for yachts, Diamond Falls and Mineral Baths built by the French King Louis XVI to refresh and heal troops stationed on St Lucia.
The honeymoon haven of St Lucia was featured in the 14th season of ABC The Bachelor Finale.
