Excellent visit. We took the Saluna Water Taxi from Result Beach and were really impressed. We booked at the 'office's on the beach and were driven over to Pigeon Island by Ricky who also collected us for the return trip exactly at the pre-arranged time. He dropped us back on Result Beach in front of our hotel ! The trip cost :15,IS collared per person return and only takes a few minutes.

On the 'island' we were met by a guide who directed us to the National Park office where we paid the 10 US dollar per person fee. We climbed up to the Fort which is via a steep track which has lots of free roots and ends in steep wooden steps up into the fort. Spectacular views all round. The major points of interest have illustrated signage giving some historical details. Don't miss the visitor centre which has some really interesting information and displays. The entrance fee is for the upkeep of the island and worthwhile. Wear suitable shoes for a rough track. Allow about 3 hours, maybe more of you want to climb both peaks.

We had a toasted panini and cocktailsin the Jambe De Bois restaurant - fresh and tasty, and very reasonable.

It was a short walk from The Landings where we were staying. We were able to walk past the big Sandals resort and head to the park, which cost $10/pp.

It was historical (Fort Rodney) and beautiful (Signal Hill) and well worth the trip.

We were also close to Thirsty Parrot which was a great spot for lunch.

Have been to St. Lucia/Rodney Bay several times and never done any local sight-seeing. Took a day off diving to visit Pigeon Island Natl. park--not too expensive to enter, and in addition to the historical sites, has a couple of nice beaches you can relax on, with or without your own picnic. I do recommend wearing sneakers or shoes if you want to climb both hills--one is definitely steeper and tougher than the other and the visitors I saw in sandals were struggling. Beautiful views from the hills and you can get a good sense of the island and its neighbors when the sky is clear!

Didn't have much time here but what we saw was of interest. The beach area though has little shelter, sun burn!! The wooden leg cafe is very interesting, all the furniture is made using recycled wood. Worth a visit.

Great for an amble round, amazing views and gorgeous little beach with cafe. Dip your toe into the history of St Lucia.

We explored for the best part of an afternoon, but you complete a short visit, or a whole day, but would recommend at least half a day to get the most of it. We walked round taking in the views and history, fantastic views from the top but quite a hike in the heat. Beautiful quiet beach and lovely food and beers at Jambe de bois - we had the grilled Dorado and curried Swordfish!

This park is incredible, so much better than I expected! The hike was a real hike, not just an uphill walk.. if we weren't so hot and thirsty we would've tried to make it to the top. There's so many photo opportunities along the way. They have a great little beach and there was a man on a boat selling fruit and drinks (so fun, I loved it)! The restaurant by the beach was quite good and reasonable priced, drinks were very tasty and the lunch was satisfying. This was one of the highlights of our trips, I would come back to St Lucia just to come here again!

The main attractions of Pigeon Island are the great views. It is possible to climb up to the remains of Fort Rodney (the remains of a fort established by Admiral Rodney in 1780), which gives splendid views of Signal Peak and Rodney Bay. More serious hikers can then climb up Signal Peak (though we didn't). The area is not as green as much of the rest of Saint Lucia, and the remains of the fort are limited and not very interesting (not much information is provided about the history of the fort) , but the viewing points are well worth visiting.

Our family of five (three boys at 11, 9, 6) had a wonderful time hiking the paths of the park, learning about the history, and enjoying the views of the Atlantic, Caribbean and St. Lucia.

I have been to St. Lucia 8 times but never went to Pigeon Island until last month. Glad I did. As a history fan I enjoyed walking around listening to real history buffs enlighten not so interested wives and friends. Be prepared to send a couple hours and walk through the entire site to get a better picture of how it operated and was defended. It can get hot and there is a bit of climbing so bring some water and decent shoes. Bring a camera too for some nice scenics.
