Must see

Tough to get to so you need a car or taxi. The views are increadable and a good camera/device a must.

We went all the way to the top. Drove our car as far as we could and walked the rest. Gorgeous view and very cool to be a top of the highest peak. Cannot believe people actually live up there. Lots of barking dogs at the private residences so just respect their privacy.

Stopped off on our tour, had great views of the island. Really loved this island, will be back again - there is the Caribbean, French and Dutch culture.

We were robbed. We rented two ATVs and after hiking a few minutes and taking pictures, probably 15 minutes being away from our ATVs... we returned with the seats of the ATVs up in the air. They broke into the seats and stole our phones and cash. BEWARE! TAKE YOUR BELONGINGS!

This is our fourth time coming to Pic Paradis over the last few years and we always come back because the view is spectacular and an amazing photo opportunity. We always take our jeep up the mountain and parked next to the scenic view area. However we came back to our jeep and only noticed a few minutes later that... More

Paradise Peak or Pic Paradis as it is known in French, is the highest point on the island. We were on an atv tour and this was one of the stops. I think that unless you are very fit and like to hike, it would be better to go in an atv or at least as far as you can... More

I have done this drive many times, and will not think of it if its been raining. Any little car does not cope well with it, and its just a one way street, so you will have to turn around either at the tellcom tower at the summit or in a driveway before that. Great view. Bring mosquito bat.

My husband and I loved this hike! The entrance is down Pic Paradis road on the right side. There is a sign with Loterie Farm. They don't open till 9am and it costs $5 a person to hike. There are two options, first is the hour hike and the other is a two hour hike. Some people say it takes... More

A little nerve-wracking on the drive up, but totally worth it when you catch that view! See the whole island from up there!
