We visited St Lucia over a year ago and still cannot stop talking about our experience. It was by far our best vacation yet! We wanted to hike the Gros Piton and upon the suggestion of fellow TA members, were referred to Paul at Zion Lion Farm.
Paul is one of the warmest, friendliest people I have ever met. He picked us up at Sugar Beach (Formally Jalouise) on his boat and from the moment we saw him we knew it was going to be a great day.
We arrived on his secluded beach within minutes and our guide Martin had us on our way up the mountain while Paul prepared for our return.
The hike itself is quite difficult. I recommend hiking as early as you can as it gets quite hot in the late morning and afternoon and take lots of water.
Once we returned from our walk, Paul had prepared us a lovely lunch on the beach. We had fish with rice, salad, juice, and cashews. All fresh and all delicious.
Paul then took us on a tour of the grounds. He showed us his garden and took time to really explain each item planted. We appreciated this as we are gardeners ourselves. We then went to a little waterfall where Paul so graciously took photos of us and on our way back he broke open a coconut for us to enjoy.
Before we left for the day we enjoyed some homemade star fruit wine and St Lucian rum.
Paul really is a special person. I hope to one day see him again. He is a beautiful person that loves his land and loves what he does. Do not hesitate booking this experience. It was amazing!!
