This hike was great—pretty strenuous. Be prepared for it to rain the whole time. It did for us. It’s about two hours up and two hours down and your legs will hurt a lot for the next two days so do yourself a favour and stretch after and get into the hot tub for a while once you get back... More

This is the must see attraction on the island! We took a speed boat there from our resort and snorkeled in a small bay right near the pitons! Then we traveled up the mountain to a beautiful waterfall and eating a local restaurant!

The Pitons were a amazing - grand and majestic. We had the best views as we went across the catamaran on the carribean sea. Was a great backdrop for family pictures. We also had great views of from The Beacon Restaurant. A no miss for vistors to St Lucia.

A must see are the Piton Mountains. It's ok by land but breathtaking by sea. You'll have a greater respect for Mother Nature.

Little and large these two pointey mountains are the famous landmarks for the island. We have not climbed either but this is quite possible and there are plenty of guides available to take your money. The climbs vary, Gros Piton can take around three hours to ascend, the Little Piton is far less strenuous and easily be ascended.

The Pitons is one of the 'must see' parts of any St. Lucia trip. The surrounding vistas as well as the hidden treasures in the form of some very high class restaurants will see that you are not disappointed.

The Gros Piton hike is one which pretty much anyone remotely fit can do. It is difficult but never dangerous (unlike the little Piton hike, apparently). We were two of us. You wouldn't call either of us fit. We're in our mid-30s. I am thin and a bit low on stamina and my friend has grown a bit of a... More

Our entire family climbed Gros Piton. It took 3.5 hours and we sweated like pigs. We each 1.5 litres of water and consumed nearly all of it. It rained towards the top and the view was obscured. But it was still worth it. We had two guides, front and back. They were pretty quiet and most of their chat was... More

Visited with a hiking club from Antigua. Out of the 50 that went, 45 made it to the top. If you're an avid walker/hiker you'll have no challenges. The terrain is steep and rocky but not dangerous. You'll be fine in cargo shorts and tennis shoes or hiking boots if you prefer. Be sure to pack water Gatorade and a... More
