I had booked a day trip to the Pitons through Windjammer where I was staying. The trip included Marigot Bay and Soufriere, a choice between a mud bath or volcano tour, with lunch at a coffee bean plantation and trip to a mineral spa at the gardens. The Pitons were clearly the highlight. I only wish we could have gotten... More

First of all, no one really tells you how to get to base camp. From Soufriere, take the main road South. After roughly 10 minutes, you'll pass a large sign for Tet Paul - keep going. Your next right will have a sign for Gros Piton Hike. Follow that road for about 7km, until you reach a bus shelter. Turn... More

I recommend that if you travel to St. Lucia that you visit the Pitons. We traveled there from Castries by boat so that we could appreciate the beautiful view from sea. However, the route on land is very scenic as well. Once there we soaked in the healing hot springs that trickle down from the volcano and painted our bodies... More

Went snorkeling between the Pitons. Absolutely beautiful. Water was clear and the beach was perfect. Sugar Beach was awesome! Definitely recommend visiting St. Lucia to see this historic landmark! Definitely worth it.

A must see in St Lucia. My friends (a bunch of girls) and I went here for the day. One of nature's most extra ordinary and majestic scenes.

On May 13, 2015 I climbed Gros Piton, starting from a beach south of the mountain. My climb was arranged by Spencer Ambrose Tours (which I highly recommend). My wife and I were visiting St. Lucia on a cruise and had a limited amount of time to complete the hike. Upon arriving at the beach by boat around 9:30 am,... More

Pros: Great view, very challenging even if at moderate fitness levels, will be the highlight of your trip Cons: Fast pace set even if inexperienced, no "brief" or "climbing tips/pointers" given, very demanding My wife and I visited St. Lucia and made it to the top on our honeymoon. We are both around what I would assume is above-average physical... More
