But they weren't the only ones to enjoy what this island has to offer. Pirates such as Francois le Clerc capitalized on the fact that the mountainous location and the sheltering waters were able to provide his crew with the ability to hide both themselves and their treasures. Now that St. Lucia is a part of the British West Indies, tourism, banking, and bananas are the income sources the people rely upon.
