Pigeon Island National Park, St. Lucia

(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Explore Pigeon Island National Park to discover an area rich in history and natural beauty. This island was artificially connected to the mainland in the 1970s and has since become a landmark of St. Lucia. Rich in history and occupied by Amerindians, pirates, and the British over the centuries, the island still houses numerous remains of forts, barracks, and other military buildings. Climb to the highest points within the park for panoramic views, look for scenic spots for a picnic, or use one of two sandy beaches to swim, snorkel, and lounge on the tranquil waterfront.

  • My wife and I had a driver take us around the island for the day and this was one of our favorites. The history is a nice start to the park, with the kitchen and solders barracks scattered throughout....  more »

  • Very cool place to check out some of the local history for the area. There are some structures still intact but mostly it's structural ruins. There are signs all over the area explaining some of the history behind what you're seeing and walking through as well as tips on things to look for. We went mostly to hike up both peaks and it was a relatively quick hike. The higher peak was a bit more challenging and I wouldn't advise people attempt it unless you have on shoes. There is no hand rail and it can be steep and rocky but well worth the medium effort for the photos and views you get from atop. Keep in mind it's a $7 USD fee per person to get in.
  • Great place to relax with the family. Beautiful setting, interesting history, convenient facilities.
  • Great day visit. Home up the small hill for a great view. Bring a picnic to eat at the relaxed beach on your way back.
  • Real very cool place to have party along the seashore. Pigeon island national park is known for is signal peak, good beach and during jazz festival time spot in lucia near by pigeon beach. It is also only location between wave full Atlantic ocean and silent Caribbean sea.
  • This is an awesome venue. Famous for St Lucia Jazz and arts Festival celebrated over a 10days event during the month of May every year!
