    Pigeon Island Adventures: Beach, Hike, and Family Fun!
    Pigeon Island in St. Lucia offered a delightful day trip for our family. While the beach area is compact and shade is limited, there's the convenient option to rent chairs and umbrellas. Despite some rain during our visit, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Plus, for the more adventurous, there's a hike to the top that promises stunning views. Great for families and explorers alike!

    Pigeon Island
    We really enjoyed are day at Pigeon Island. There is large parking lot before you enter the park. When you enter the park, you pay for the entrance fee and if you want to get a lounge chair you tell them right up front and you pay in total $13 per person for the entrance fee and the chair. Save your receipt as you can tour the Island and climb the Peaks before you use the Beaches. There are two beaches. As you enter the park the first beach to the left is really nice but not too much shade. Continue walking and the next beach has plenty of shade. There is a restaurant/bar at the end of the second beach worth trying. If its busy be ready for a wait. We toured the Island and then climbed the peaks. The first peak is easier to climb than Signal Peak. Signal Peak is definitely challenging. If you decide to climb it make sure you have good footing and bring water as you will stop, rest and drink some water as you climb. You are allowed to leave the park and return as long as you have your enrty receipt. We parked our rent a car outside the entrance so after we climbed the peaks we went to our car, got our beach gear and changed in the bathrooms located inside the park, went to the shadier beach and got our lounge chairs. There is also a tent at the shadier beach that provides snorkeling and scuba diving if you want to do it. Great day and highly recommend a trip to Pigeon Island.

    AMAZING BEACH !! AWFUL LOCALS
    Amazing Beach, Great sea and sand . This beach is right next door to sandals and is a stunning area for a swim and sand . pay the $5-10 usd for the loungers and then DO NOT engage with anyone else, say no to everything , be as rude and abrupt as they are and enjoy your day. If you want food either use the Grill on the far left of the beach , or the Grill at the far right ( next to sandals ). The locals are sleezy, smiley, scamming and awful people ( those working the beach ) I wouldn’t avoid the beach as it’s gorgeous, the reason that people pay so much for hotels on the beach is because of the locals and their awful ways about them. The team in Joes Grill were excellent, excellent food.

Very disappointed the taxi drivers have a hustle with the chair sellers which on cruise days go up to 10 dollars a chair from 5 ..

Then the real hustle starts you get pestered to death with all the sellers such a shame as this is a nice beach not a big beach thou ..
We went to a bar 2 dollar beers and really good daiquiri s too ..
Toilets you had to pay for with a very pushy lady ..

But unfortunately you dont have a big choice from.st Lucia Port.

I've tried them all x

We arrived in St. Lucia to find everyone from the Cruise ships trying to get to Rodney Bay so we opted for the less busy Pigeon island beach.
Great choice, small beach with plenty of sunbeds, lovely gentle slope into perfect carribean waters.
Small selection of bars but by far the best was the guys who turned up on a boat selling g fresh fruit and more importantly rum punch 👍😂
He hollowed out a pineapple and filled it with crushed ice and rum punch. Perfect in that location and it made the day for us👍👍👍

Enjoyed a beautiful day, quieter than Reduit beach , 30 mins taxi from the cruise port. First class service for food and drinks and an endless supply of rum mixers from the guy on the boat. A picturesque outlook over a clear Caribbean Sea

What a hidden gem! Far enough away from most of the cruise ship crowd. Right next to Sandals. Three really great beach shack restaurants/ bars. True Caribbean atmosphere. Calm waters.
You can rent a chair and umbrella and then go to one of the shacks for great food. Several shops, nice people. A guy in a boat comes selling all kinds of fruits and different types of rum punch.
The views are absolutely gorgeous across the bay! If you are looking for a Caribbean vibe, this place hits the mark!

My wife and I were on a cruise around the Caribbean and visited 5 or 6 islands, St Lucia was by far the worst stop and our day spent at this beach was the reason.

A local driver in Dominica warned us that St Lucia was a dangerous Caribbean island for a few different reasons and from our experience he was right. I’m sure if you are part of a sandals resort it is lovely but if you hop off the cruise ship and get ushered into a taxi you’re probably going to end up at this Pigeon Island beach.

Every island the cruise docked at was pretty much the same, the main trade is tourism so the folks come out and try sell you a tour, mostly local taxi drivers with a nice AC minivan. Every time we did this we had a great day, local knowledge, local characters and an all round brilliant day. So on arrival to St Lucia figured the same would be good. NO.

Greeted by the usual drill we looked for the best price for a beach day and were ushered by the Official Desk toward the chaps in orange polo’s. All seemed friendly enough, promising the best local beach, “this is where I take my kids” for example. Just what we were looking for.

The minibus pulled up to the beach which I think kinda looks a bit ropey with two rows of umbrellas and chairs. Straight away a guy opened the minibus door introducing himself and also knowing the taxi drivers name, great I thought this is funny but the instinct in me was telling me something else.

He directs you to the beach and sells you the chairs and informs you who will be looking after you today, IE who you go to to buy drinks and no one else.

Straight away the vendors are on you, making things from vines and asking for a donation, selling jewellery, selling massages and reflexology (yeah whatever), asking you if you take care of your wife (like that’s all she’s for), honestly I know we brits love to exaggerate to make a point but after being hassled 10 or so different times within 5 minutes I lost my temper a bit with the 11th. Luckily it didn’t yield consequences, he just explained it was the hustle and to expect it but moved on. At this point I noticed how many different groups of locals are watching over the beach and I thought better of my outburst.....

I felt nervous about leaving my wife when I went for a swim as the locals kept pestering her accusing her of cheating on me texting other men on her phone and that they wouldn’t “let a women like you cheat on me”. Ironically she was just reading a book about Harvey Weinstein. It’s horrible, the protective instinct tells you to defend but my head was saying otherwise. We couldn’t wait for our taxi to return and left, we were powerless.

Another couple on the cruise had an even worse experience where the female was followed and propositioned, they also left but that’s for them to review.

This is a nice beach completely ruined by what feels like an organised gang. The taxi desk tell you to go there, the taxi driver takes you there and the locals control you whilst you are there. I regret my decisions but have the opportunity to warn others and this was only one day one great trip visiting all the islands.

Even the bathroom is $1, but is it fk....., these guys no way maintain the toilets or the beach but somehow have control, groups of locals are dotted all over so you won’t be arriving or leaving untouched.

Take care here, actually don’t go at all, I’m sure there are much nicer spots.
