|About these ratings|
The Pigeon Island National Park can appeal to an eclectic mix of travelers. You could get a history lesson (mainly about the pirate Wooden Leg), attend a music concert (this is the site of the annual St. Lucia Jazz Festival) or snap pics of nearby Martinique (as seen from atop Fort Rodney). None of these appeal to you? Well there are also some beaches, picnic areas, a restaurant and some 18th-century barracks spread across this national park's 44 acres. Most recent travelers praise how much there is to do for such a minimal entry fee -- not to mention how easy this site is to access. In 1972, a sandy causeway was constructed to bridge the water gap between the island and the mainland. Nevermind that "Pigeon Peninsula National Park" doesn't have quite the same ring, you'll see that it now only takes about two minutes to walk across from St. Lucia's northwest coast.
You can visit the Pigeon Island National Park every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for approximately $5 per adult, $1 per child age 5 to 12. Visit the St. Lucia National Trust website for further details.
