Pitons, St. Lucia

4.7
#1 of 54 in Parks in St. Lucia
The World Heritage-listed Pitons represent two volcanic spires rising from the Caribbean Sea. Take a boat ride to gaze at the tall volcanic plugs, or try snorkeling in the surrounding waters, filled with coral reefs and an array of marine life. Brave the strenuous hike to the top of the lush Gros Piton, the larger of the two spires, and enjoy the panoramic views. Climbing the very steep Petit Piton, the smaller spire, is recommended for pro climbers only.
