The Pitons, St Lucia
St Lucia possesses a topography and ecology of stunning beauty, matched by no other location in the Caribbean. The island’s pride in its natural resources is evident in the country’s ongoing protection and conservation efforts. In the mountainous interior lies the enormous National Rain Forest and the island’s protected coastal sights include the breathtaking, unforgettable spires of Les Pitons. Located near Soufriere, these primeval twin peaks, topping 2,000 feet, are St Lucia’s most famous landmark. Only the most daring climbers have attempted an ascent on their summits, but they can be seen in all their glory from Mt. Gimie or from the decks of a boat offshore.
