A Can't Miss View in St. Lucia
Much is made of the views from Gros Piton, one of St. Lucia’s famous volcanic peaks. And rightfully so. Hike 2,619 feet to its summit and you’ll be rewarded for your efforts with a breathtaking panorama of the island’s patchwork below and the misty specter of neighboring islands on the horizon.
But there’s another equally awesome St Lucian view that doesn’t require a four-hour round-trip commitment or that you be in Olympic shape to complete it.
At Pigeon Island National Park, on the island’s north coast, all you need is 10 minutes and grippy-soled shoes to hike from the beach up to the ruins of Fort Rodney, a lookout built by the British back in 1778. From here you can see the sea spread out underneath you, the manmade causeway that links the island to the mainland bisecting its blue beauty.
