This was a bucket list destination, and I'm glad I did it. We rented a Jimmy Jeep at the airport, and the roads were very intimidating, but worth the risk. We visited Sugar Beach, Hurricane Hole and Rodney's bay in the week we were there,...More

Everyone loves mountains. The pitons are two fabulous mountains rising from the sea almost gherkin shape from a certain angle. They are possibly the main attraction in St Lucia if landscapes are your thing. Well worth a boat trip to see them

Holland America cruise lines went right into the bay underneath Grand Pitons. They are very beautiful and it was well worth seeing. If you get the chance, do it!

We visited them a several times mostly in connection with a snorkeling trip, or botanical garden visit, or a look at the volcano. They are the signature feature of St. Lucia and a must see for every visitor, although my son seemed disinterested. I like...More

Didn’t get “up close and personal”. I took and sea and land tour where we only got a view from the water, still a beautiful sight.

The drive from Castries to the Pitons is long and windy but worth it when they finally come into view. Just breathtaking with a few good viewing pull off spots along the way although traffic can be tough at these with buses and tour groups....More
