There are lots of higher mountains all over the world, but to my mind none more beautiful than these. Maybe it's because they rise directly from the sea (and aren't sitting on... read more

There are lots of higher mountains all over the world, but to my mind none more beautiful than these. Maybe it's because they rise directly from the sea (and aren't sitting on other lesser mountains' shoulders) or perhaps that they are covered with greenery. Best appreciated, I think, from the sea so great there's plenty of boat trips to choose... More

If you are at all thinking about doing this then you have to ! Not to be missed but definitely a grueling adventure. I will try to keep this short as other reviews have detailed this hike very accurately in that I felt they were on my hike with me. Not sure what I was thinking as I have been... More

We wanted to tour the island and see all of the sites. We were recommended to see the Pitons, go to the Sulphur pit, see the water fall, snokel and tour Margot Bay. We were told that the tour by Joe knows would do all. They undersold them. Our tour guide (JR) was fantastic. We have went on many excursions... More

Visited St. Lucia in June 2016. We had rented a car from our Marigot Bay hotel. The first day we went to Dasheen Restaurant for lunch, which afforded us a high view of the Pitons. The next day we visited Suger Beach (A must visit), which gave us an up close view of Petit Piton. A spectacular photo opportunity from... More

I've hiked both Pitons and both are great hikes. Petit Piton is only do-able if you're very fit, and it's an unofficial trail (but there's nothing illegal in doing it). There are guides waiting at the trail head. Grand Piton is a nice hike, fairly easy, although longish so take plenty of water. Both are fairly expensive, so it's very... More

These are the awesome landmarks on St Lucia in the beautiful Caribbean. This is a must see. They are beautiful from the ocean as well as via bus.

We were on a Carnival Cruise and did the Snorkeling between the Pitons excursion. They picked us up at the cruise pier and took us along the coastline where the guides gave us an informative tour of the island. When we arrived at the beach locagted between the Pitons we were on our way snorkeling. The beach had a snack... More

Beautiful place but extremely harder than I thought large boulders to climb over extreme elevation straight up lots and lots of boulders to climb over this is not a trail for a walk. Very steep energetic climb and you should be prepared ahead of time for this.

The hike up is very strenuous even for me who is a marathon runner and triathlete but lives in a non mountainous environment. The 1st half of the hike kept me huffing and puffing...the last half is tougher because it gets much more steeper and for me who is 5'2 I literally having to crawl up rocks. However the view...
