The Pitons are justly famous, as Saint Lucia’s national symbols. Steep and dramatically rising on the south west coast near Soufrière, the Petit Piton and Gros Piton really are breathtaking. The ocean approach we made on our catamaran tour was really striking, gradually emerging to...More

We visited the Piton while on a tour in St. Lucia and later got to sail past on our cruise ship. They are an impressive site....very pretty both during the day and evening.

Hypnotizing and beautiful. We had a view of the Pitons from our hotel and could drink them in at all different times of day. Lucky us.

My wife and I climbed the Gros Piton as part of an organised tour on 22nd November 2017. The pre tour blurb described the 6,000 foot plus ascent as a 'moderate hike'. Whilst it certainly wasn't a climb it was not my idea of a...More
