I used to horseback ride on this island back in the 70s. The causeway is now a mess of resorts, but the park is still peaceful with a nice hike, view and history. Avoid the other restaurant and head to Jambe de Bois for the lamb roti, local okra soup, fresh juice and friendly service. We met a British couple... More

This is worth the day, we rested on the beach, we snorkeled, we ate at the quaint restaurant, hiked the two small peaks, and learned a bit of history.

The history here is neat to see. The views at the top of the hills were really nice. The beach on the island had nice white sand and you can rent beach chairs and find shade. There are also restaurants which is nice so you can hang out for the day. I would recommend this excursion while in St Lucia.

I took this excursion from St. James Resort - this is a great trip, and more so if you love historical sites. what is so nice about this tour is that you have the beautiful Caribbean to swim in on one side of the island, and the roaring Atlantic just a small walk to the other side. In the middle... More

Hiked to Fort Rodney... It was a short, manageable trail, with steps and railings along the way. The views up there are ABSOLUTELY stunning! You get a full 360º view.

Our family of four including two teens (17 year old boy and 14 year old girl) thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Pigeon Island. Location - north end of Saint Lucia in Gros Islet parish. Right beside a public beach with lots of space, great swimming and chairs/umbrellas for rent. Getting there - just off the main road - accessible by... More

Hiked to both summits at the park. Amazing views of Gros Inlet and Rodney Bay and the Atlantic. Very historic with the ruins of Fort Rodney from the British era on the island of St. Lucia. Hope they are able to of the restore some buildings in the near future as it would be interesting to see how it looked... More

You can reach the park (entrance fee of $7 pp) by water taxi ($15 pp/round trip) from Rodney Bay which is a nice way to see part of St. Lucia, or drive around to the entrance. There are two beaches - if you have a chance, find out if any cruise ships will be there when you want to go.... More

We booked the tour via our hotel. Only four of us plus the tour rep from the hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely lady who worked for the National Trust. She explained all about the history of the island and about the trees and some of their healing properties. We had a leisurely stroll to the... More

We traveled over by boat from our resort at Rodney Bay (10 minutes) We did some snorkeling which was not that impressive but it had been very rough and the bottom was stirred up, so we did not see many colorful fish. It is a pleasant place to walk around, see some historic sites and witness the difference between the... More
