On today’s destination special, we are embarking on a journey to the jewel of the Caribbean, just 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, adorned with a tapestry of turquoise waters, golden beaches, and emerald-green rainforests. The enchanting island of Saint Lucia.


Having visited many Caribbean islands myself, Saint Lucia is one that truly sets itself apart, in part because of its enormously diverse landscape. The famous Piton mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage site, frame a lush rainforest that cascades down to meet the powdery sandy shores below.


And let’s talk about the warmth of its people. St Lucia isn’t just a destination; it’s a welcoming embrace from the moment you arrive. With easy year-round access from the UK, including daily flights from London Gatwick and seasonal options from London Heathrow, getting there is a breeze.


You’re spoiled for choice with accommodation. From the unparalleled luxury of Jade Mountain, featured on BBC’s Amazing Hotels, to the romance-infused retreats of Sandals, and an array of cosy boutique hotels and villas, there’s something for every traveller’s taste and budget.


And let’s not forget the vibrant culture pulsating through St Lucia’s veins, with events like the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival and Carnival adding rhythm and colour to the calendar year-round.


And our guest today knows a thing or two about the music scene. I am truly honoured to be joined on today’s episode by an institution of British music culture, Trevor Nelson.


Trevor’s parents are both from St Lucia and though he grew up in the London, he has travelled there throughout his life, and has a home there where he spends a lot of time.


Not only does he help bring his favourite island to life, we also get to hear all about his illustrious life and career along the way.


So let’s get ready to set sail for paradise. Here’s Trevor Nelson’s St Lucia.
