Pigeon Island National Landmark

Pigeon Island National Landmark

The historic hideout of the pirate Jambe de Bois, Pigeon Island was connected to the mainland by a causeway in the ’70s. Drive on over and hike up to Fort Rodney, where you will be met with a breathtaking view of Rodney Bay to the south. You can also pose in the ruins of a British garrison, stop in at the museum or visit one of the two beaches.

The best place on the island to catch a peek of the once-endangered Amazona aersicolor, the colourful and magnificent Saint Lucian Parrot. The trail was blazed by French soldiers during World War II and links-up with the Edmund Forest Reserve. You can also pass by La Tille Falls on the way.

Saint Lucia’s most iconic geographical feature – a pair of volcanic mountains – are breathtaking from any angle, but for the very best view, head out to sea and witness the wonder of Gros Piton and Petit Piton rising majestically from the water.

Marigot Bay

Marigot Bay

Fringed with palm trees and dotted with pristine white boats, this little bay on the island’s west coast is a real looker. Sunset shooters should be sure to stop by and capture the spectacular light show as the sun dips behind the Caribbean sea.
