Of course you have to see these, but go by boat or helicopter. We went by car and it was horrible. We didn't even get a good view after a 2 hour drive from the north.

My wife & I hiked quite a bit getting in shape for a 60 mile Europe hike, and along the way we visited St Lucia. Climbing Gros Piton sounded like a good idea. I'm not totally sorry I did it, but I have to say...More

Standing between the Pitons was a humbling experience. It was absolutely breathtaking. I highly recommend going on the excursion to visit by catamaran, sail, or helicopter!

The boat ride to the Pitons was fun & watching the sunset was worth the excursion. The snorkeling was not that good as this was a 5 hr excursion but we only had 30 minutes to snorkel & water was murky.

We visited the Pitons as part of our Island Day Tour. The pictures we were able to take were awesome!

We had a terrific view from a hiking trail that overlooked the Petit Piton. It was definitely worth the climb. We also had lunch at Mango Tree (Stonefield Resort). There was a terrific view from there as well.

It's pretty hard to miss the Pitons if you're on the southern end of St. Lucia; that's a good thing because they are really scenic. The dramatic spires set so close to the ocean make for great picture taking from many angles on land or...More

Saw them from a catamaran, from a van, from Souffrierre. They are amazing! You think of Jurassic Park, Superman, James Bond...all sorts of scenes from movies come to mind. Such a beautiful site!

Not sure who your provider is, but you would need to ask them. We were on a boat with about a dozen people, and no, no rest room with Spencer Ambrose.

A guide is required, although you do not have to book your trip through a property or company. If you handle it yourself, I believe the rate for the hike is a few dollars cheaper. The area is a United Nations World Heritage... More
