Really enjoyed walking here and the views from the top of the hill are fantastic. Also good wildlife but its a pity they dont have guided walks.

The information and interpretaion is all a bit dated and the staff seem to have locked themselves away in their office!

This historically important island is fantastic as a relatively easy "dual-climb" adventure. The guide-free climbing is not set by any pace setter but your own heart beat. But what a view! And digital photography now makes it easier than all the times I've lugged up a bag of lenses and a chunky SLR. But even that was do-able and worthwhile. I've been up there at least 10 times since '88. The island of Martinique to the north can be clearly seen and most of St. Lucia's many western bays including Rodney Bay, the town of Gros Islet and its own Pitons can be seen arching far to the south. Old cannons, tombstones and canteens built for and by Admiral Rodney's crew are still laying around for our observation. The Park is well maintained. It is most excellent and so economical too. When at the north end of St. Lucia this site is not to be missed. .

We were on a cruise and stopped at St. Lucia our 2nd day. We did a sea kayaking trip to Pigeon Island and then hiked to the top of the fort, and it was one of our favorite island excursions. The kayaking was the perfect length, we did not feel exhausted afterwards, had lunch on Pigeon Island and then had plenty of time to explore the island. What a beautiful spot - from the top you could see to other islands in the Caribean and both the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic. The one panoramic we had framed is from this spot.
Highly recommend!

Pigeon Island, although it's no longer an actual island, is a must for visitors to St. Lucia. Located near Gros Islet, Pigeon Island National Park provides a great history lesson along the hike to the top of either one of its peaks. At the top of either peaks, Martinique is seen at a distance at the northern end, and the rest of hilly St. Lucia is viewed from the south. The beautiful beach at the bottom of the hill looks breathtaking from there. There is also a restaurant, bar and interpretation centre providing details of the many battles fought on this small island.

Pigeon Island Park was very scenic with many photo opportunities. The windy surf on the Atlantic side and the boat filled harbor on the other. Beautiful tropical trees, birds and wonderful bluffs to hike. The view on top of the Fort is spectacular. The Cave on the south-west side has been destroyed by a hurricane but the rocky shore is still very interesting.
