A "must do" if in the Soufriere area of the Island. It was a great accomplishment to make it all the way, but I was stiff for a couple of days after the climb. Wear appropriate shoes, bring water and a snack and hike early in the morning. Beautiful views! Helpful guide, worth the small fee.

Climbed the Gros Piton, which truly is a "climb" rather than a hike! I went through Island Routes, via Sandals resorts on the island. They contracted with Premier Tours. It was a two hour drive there and two hours back from the Rodney Bay area, and the road was intense. If you get motion sick, DO NOT GO. My wife... More

Swimming between The Pitons is magical. So whether you take a swim and a walk on Sugar Beach, hike up the Gros Piton or have lunch at Ladera. It's my favorite thing to do on the island. But if it's your 1st time also plan to go to the town of Soufriere and visit the volcano and maybe take a... More

Took an excursion from our cruise ship to snorkel at the Pitons. Beautiful landmark worth taking the trip to see. Somewhat murky waters to snorkel in but amazing views nonetheless.

Water taxi over to the Pitons from the beach. Wear good firm shoes or runners. Climb to the top of the Pitons for a fantastic view of the surrounding waters, with some history of the island thrown in.

Great hike nothing to dislike apart from the weather. I did get a bit bored listening to the sermon from the guide on the way back down as I feel that religion is a private matter and I do not appreciate someone else shoving their opinion down my throat.
