Excellent visit. We took the Saluna Water Taxi from Result Beach and were really impressed. We booked at the 'office's on the beach and were driven over to Pigeon Island by Ricky who also collected us for the return trip exactly at the pre-arranged time. He dropped us back on Result Beach in front of our hotel ! The trip cost :15,IS collared per person return and only takes a few minutes.

On the 'island' we were met by a guide who directed us to the National Park office where we paid the 10 US dollar per person fee. We climbed up to the Fort which is via a steep track which has lots of free roots and ends in steep wooden steps up into the fort. Spectacular views all round. The major points of interest have illustrated signage giving some historical details. Don't miss the visitor centre which has some really interesting information and displays. The entrance fee is for the upkeep of the island and worthwhile. Wear suitable shoes for a rough track. Allow about 3 hours, maybe more of you want to climb both peaks.

We had a toasted panini and cocktailsin the Jambe De Bois restaurant - fresh and tasty, and very reasonable.

This park is incredible, so much better than I expected! The hike was a real hike, not just an uphill walk.. if we weren't so hot and thirsty we would've tried to make it to the top. There's so many photo opportunities along the way. They have a great little beach and there was a man on a boat selling fruit and drinks (so fun, I loved it)! The restaurant by the beach was quite good and reasonable priced, drinks were very tasty and the lunch was satisfying. This was one of the highlights of our trips, I would come back to St Lucia just to come here again!

This is a cracking little historic island, linked by a causeway to Gros Islet. Service at the ticket booth is pretty grumpy and unhelpful (including telling us that it was open until 5 on Sunday only for us to be asked to leave by 3pm due to Covid curfew), but it has a number of things to recommend it: some great views and walks, 2 lovely small beaches (hire chairs when you buy a ticket) some interesting history (though the booklet is a bit old school). It’s also got a good beach restaurant called Jambe de Bois with some lovely food, though this also seems to close by 5pm.

Wonderful grounds to walk around with enjoy history the beach and the view if both the Atlantic and the Caribbean at the top. It was hot and dry on the day we went and there is some steep uphill trekking to the Fort and Signal Hill but you don't have to go up there you can easily enjoy all of the amenities at ground level. Rent a beach chair for the beach (no hassle at the beach)for only $3, have a drink or a snack at the pub or the beach hut, snorkel or watch the boats pass by it was a fun way to spend the afternoon.

We really enjoyed this. We got a water taxi from our hotel and traveled along the coast drinking in the views of Pigeon Island. When we got there we walked it all - people were doing it in flip flops but I’d recommend trainers as the way down is trickier. The beach is lovely with a couple of quiet little coves, restaurants and lovely people.

Four of us were lucky enough to get the opportunity to visit the Pigeon Island National Park when it was limited in entry in November 2020 for Covid19. Our resort was able to get us in and for a mere $10 USD per person, we were able to hike and tour some of the most incredible scenery I have every seen. Hiking up to Signal Peak is a challenging one (which we LOVE) but anyone with an ounce of height fear would not make it.

At the highest point, I attempted to take photos of the breathtaking views, but you cannot capture the intensity of it! It is really neat to see both the Atlantic and the Caribbean sides with the resorts in between.

The ruins throughout are really well labeled and the history is really interesting to learn about.

I cannot recommend this National Park enough as it was truly a highlight of our vacation!!

An entrance fee for the park might or might not be reasonable yet it can’t be to visit the restaurant within sight of the gate. A brusque and unfriendly response at the park entrance put us off even bothering. So we missed the park too. Rude staff are not the answer to attracting tourists!

Didn't have much time here but what we saw was of interest. The beach area though has little shelter, sun burn!! The wooden leg cafe is very interesting, all the furniture is made using recycled wood. Worth a visit.

The trip to PI was a short water taxi from my hotel. There is a $10 fee currently per person, and $3 for a beach chair if you wish. The hike to the top of the fort was good, some steep parts at the very top, so wear comfortable shoes. The views were amazing! The beach and the snorkeling was good too. I don't recall seeing a restaurant, so walk with your snacks. The toilets/showers were well maintained. The only drawback was the cashier - saw her giving her fellow St. Lucian a hard time - come on, stick together and support one another.

We were on a ship excursion from St Lucia to Pigeon Island National Bark. The road trip was very scenic and interesting. It is not an island by itself but had been. A few years back dcaswoayas construction that yea back d the Atlantic Ocean from the Lake in the park. The beach was beautiful and quiet. Beach chairs were provided. .There is an old fort on the top of the surrounding mountain. It is not a difficut trail and about 1/2 hours to climb. The tour guide went along with the hikers. There is a floating bar that goes from the beech to next door to the Sandals Island resort. It was an very enjoyable trip. There isa fee to enter the park, which was paid from the tour.
Referennce COPD-19, St Lucia had reported 17 confirmed cases

However cruise ships are not permitted to enter this island at the current time. Suggest checking with their local website and US State Dept for a status before you book any trip to this area. It would be a shame to not beable to go as it it a very interesting island, This was our 3rd trip and we always learned something new.
