Right along the main highway it's worth the stop. Good place to do your shopping but the restaurant is the hidden gem. Great views with daily specials, service is either French or English. Ladies were awesome. Food well worth it. Very reasonable. The views are the best restaurant views we have found anywhere on the is,and.

We drove on a pretty bad road as far as we could go. We did not venture any further by foot as we did not know how long a hike it is to the top. A few signs would be helpful. Not good if you cannot walk easily.

Easy to find, not a bad hike once you park. You'll have to ditch the car at some point unless you have a jeep or an ATV because the road gets bad. Great views all around the island!

Hike up to Pic Paradise from Loterie Farm, they charge you $5, give you a map, explain the hike and then off you go. It is a very well labeled path but it is a HIKE, you will get your heart pumping for sure, make sure to bring LOTS OF WATER and wear good shoes! Totally worth it when you... More

Tough to get to so you need a car or taxi. The views are increadable and a good camera/device a must.

We went all the way to the top. Drove our car as far as we could and walked the rest. Gorgeous view and very cool to be a top of the highest peak. Cannot believe people actually live up there. Lots of barking dogs at the private residences so just respect their privacy.

Stopped off on our tour, had great views of the island. Really loved this island, will be back again - there is the Caribbean, French and Dutch culture.

We were robbed. We rented two ATVs and after hiking a few minutes and taking pictures, probably 15 minutes being away from our ATVs... we returned with the seats of the ATVs up in the air. They broke into the seats and stole our phones and cash. BEWARE! TAKE YOUR BELONGINGS!

This is our fourth time coming to Pic Paradis over the last few years and we always come back because the view is spectacular and an amazing photo opportunity. We always take our jeep up the mountain and parked next to the scenic view area. However we came back to our jeep and only noticed a few minutes later that... More
