The beauty of the Pitons and surrounding island/jungle took my breath away. I am so glad we decided to explore the south side of the island before heading on to our resort on the north side. What a perfectly beautiful trip this was!

Get up out of Soufriere and into the surrounding hills. From up above, enjoy the views looking across at the two volcanic domes that were created by the nearby volcano. You're standing at the edge of a collapsed caldera - and these steep sided peaks...More

We booked a tour via Sandals to climb the Gross Piton Mountain. It was a two-hour van ride from hell. We were jammed into a clean, air-conditioned tiny mini-van. The trip took you thru the city, thru several small towns and fishing villages and thru...More

It’s a long drive from St Lucia’s cruise port at Castries. Over winding roads, hills, and narrow turns. From a map, it really doesn’t look very far, but in reality, it can take at least an hour … maybe up to two if traffic is...More

The view of The Titons is awesome. We especially loved the view of The Pitons from The Beacon restaurant north of Soufriere.

The hike itself is OK and it is hard. The view is nice. If it rains the trail can be very slippery. The bad review is based on the price. Even if you have your own guide and drive there yourself they want $50 USD...More

First of these are the best mountains on the island. Second they are breathtaking. Third there is driving right off these mountains in the sea. Last I could go anytime.
