Gros Piton, St. Lucia

#1 of 66 in Parks in St. Lucia
The World Heritage-listed Gros Piton represent two volcanic spires rising from the Caribbean Sea. Take a boat ride to gaze at the tall volcanic plugs, or try snorkeling in the surrounding waters, filled with coral reefs and an array of marine life. Brave the strenuous hike to the top of the lush Gros Piton, the larger of the two spires, and enjoy the panoramic views. Climbing the very steep Petit Piton, the smaller spire, is recommended for pro climbers only. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Choiseul holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Gros Piton and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The climb was challenging at times, but it was worth it. The guides were fantastic! The hike is broken into four parts with a resting area between each part. The view at the top is great. There are railings and steps along much of the path.
  • We spent a week in St Lucia and Pitons were a highlight ofnour trip. They are grand, gorgeous and a major attraction sight here. Any boat ride to Soufriere would give a great view of these. We got a glimpse of these also from our road trip to the volcano via car as well.
