The Pitons are incredibly beautiful from land and sea. We took a taxi to see the Pitons and also took a catamaran to see the Pitons. They are just as beautiful from both and worth seeing from both if you have time.

I'd wanted to do this last year but due to a hip injury I decided I'd put it off until this year. The road to the start of the trail is a bit windy but you'll get good glimpses of what you're about to climb. We started just after 9am and I'd say get there earlier if you can to... More

What a beautiful view, we drove to Anse Chastenet on a gravel road and took some awesome pictures from the side of the mountain.

We climbed the Gros Piton (Petit Piton is the smaller but more challenging hike as its has more vertical climbs) which was much more difficult than we had anticipated. We love doing difficult hikes so it was a perfect experience. Our guide was phenomenal and in great shape!! Hike was strenuous and some folks we met along the way didn't... More

I loved the hike on the Pitons. It is not for those who are not fit, it is challenging. We did it from sea level and within minutes were soaking wet in sweat. Enjoy it!

Fantastic sight from the sea. We had chartered a fishing boat which enabled us to encompass a fishing trip with viewing the pitons visiting Tet Paul ,and the Botanical gardens. Great day out.!

Of course, my husband HAD to climb them! I can't, but he said he could see forever. Do it if you're physically able!

Great way to see the Pitons is from the Tet Paul Trail. It's located just to the east of the mountains near Sofriere. There is a small cost for a guide and well worth the cost. It's not rugged but there are some steps but the beautiful views of the mountains and water are worth it.
