Talk show super-star Oprah Winfrey once said that St. Lucia's two majestic volcanic plugs, the fabled twin peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton, located south of Soufrière and situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are among the top ten things to have in your "bucket list." We couldn't agree more! Every time returning visitors see the Pitons, they often remark that it seems like they are seeing them for the first time, every sighting is mind-blowing. On a full-day excursion to the Pitons, you can hike all the way to the top, noticing everything from the orchids, the hummingbirds, the butterflies, the canopy of trees and one of the most spectacular views you will ever encounter.  

September in Saint Lucia: Three Great Things to Do This Month

September 05, 2017

Saint Lucia is a place of lush rainforests, rugged mountains, and people with a proud heritage. This month features three attractions and events. First, find the parrot – that is, the Saint Lucia Parrot. The island’s national bird is endangered, and there are only around 500 of them left. This parrot sports emerald-green wings, bright yellow tail feathers, and a royal blue head, and is found only on the island. The most rewarding parrot-watching can be found on the Des Cartiers Rainforest Trail. Tip: Mangoes are a favorite with the birds, so stake out the mango trees.

Next, indulge your inner pirate with a visit to Pigeon Island, home of the island’s first French settler. A pirate known as Jambe de Bois, aka Wooden Leg, made the island his ops center almost 500 years ago, and it remains today as a national park. Linked by a man-made causeway to the rest of the island, you can visit the fort’s ruins and check out the spectacular view from the top. Finally, be sure to check out the Country & Blues Festival from September 27th – 30th. The festival will feature authentic Saint Lucian music – a diverse style that features the musician as the storyteller. The music itself is based on the island’s folk roots, and expresses the emotions of the people.
