    Natural Spa experience
    This was my favorite thing to do in St. Lucia. Water from the volcanic hot springs cascades into a group of wading pools where you can just soak up the warmth or get in the waterfall for an amazing back massage. Liked it so much we went back twice. Easy walk to the pools after you buy your ticket from the friendly guy at the entrance. One love. 💚

    Nice mineral falls in a serene setting
    A short walk down to several mineral pools surrounded by lush tropical canopy. A warm mineral waterfall that you can stand under is fairly impressive. It was a nice soak early in the morning when there was nobody there but would be hard to get a space later in the day as tours fill up. My only complaint is that they couldn't make change for 50 EC and I paid a lot more than the posted rate as such. Worth checking out though.

    Our own hidden jungle spa
    We drove here after the sulphur springs and much preferred this waterfall. To get here, you just follow the turn off for Sugar Beach from the main road out of Soufriere (roughly opposite the entrance to Morne Coubaril). The falls are around 2km down this road on the left had side. There is a large car parking area. If this has lots of cars in it, I would probably give it a miss. We were just very lucky to be the only ones there when we went. It's $3 per person. You don't need a guide as it's just a quick 5 minute down a marked trail which ends at the waterfall. It's a warm waterfall which feels really odd when you first stand under it. We stayed for around 30 minutes just soaking in one of the pools and the whole experience felt like we had our own secret jungle spa. Once the next tourists arrived we decided to move on for lunch at Martha's Tables which is just down the road. The three things (sulphur springs, piton falls, Martha's Tables) made for a lovely, chilled out low stress morning easily doable in a hire car from Soufriere.

Popped by after hearing a guide talk about it. It was very pleasant, $3US/pp to walk down the path and then up a bit to sit under the warm waters and soak in the slightly cooler pools. Would definitely suggest a stop if the time is available.

We visited the falls the day after an all day rain, and there was barely any falls. If you are going just to see the falls, it is not worth your time or the $3 US entry fee pp. If you are going to swim, it might be ok since they claim the water is warm. We had an annoying guy that was rushing us down the trail most likely to get a tip for really nothing. If you want to see a nice waterfall, see Diamond Waterfall in the Botanical Gardens which are also quite nice.

This was an affordable and very pleasant way to spend 45 mins or so.

There are three baths of varying temperatures and a waterfall you can stand under.

A great place to relax amongst the trees.

You might miss the changing rooms (we did on the way down), they are on the right hand side before you go all the way down to the baths

Very reasonably priced little excursion - with no one else around. A nice waterfall and lovely hot mineral water to bathe in. Easy to park there. Nice guy in a Chelsea shirt took us down, took photos, showed us local fruit etc etc. of course he expects a tip and I was happy to do so - go on, help the local people!

Positives : we were the only people there and for $3 each the views were amazing .
Downsides is that the pools were full of stale water and the waterfall tiny .
However for the money if you have a car worth popping by to get some pictures.

We visited the Piton Falls as part of an organised tour. After shrugging off the usual hawkers at the entrance we made our way along the trail to the falls - the path was not in the best condition but it was passable

The water from the falls was very warm and an enjoyable experience. However, the baths were crowded when I was there, so not very relaxing ( and probably not too hygienic ). Also, the changing area was very basic and you had to be careful not to get your clothes dirty. Proper changing facilities would be a worthwhile investment ( especially as they are already charging an entrance fee )

My wife and I visited Piton falls on our honeymoon in St. Lucia. It was literally the only thing we regreted doing on our whole trip. We elected to see the falls on our own without a "tour guide". Upon arival to the falls we were sorely dissapointed. The falls was little more than a discolored trickle down a muddy wall. The water then flowed into a man made concrete container filled with tourists. On top of our dissapointment with the falls itself, we were harrassed by one of the "tour guides"/potheads, and asked to move several times from different viewing locations. He eventually laid hands on me and that's where the line was drawn.
