But, what are The Pitons?

The two Pitons are perhaps the most majestic landmarks in the whole of the Caribbean. They are known as Petit (little) Piton and Gros (big) Piton, these Volcanic Spires stand nearly 800 meters tall. You won’t need your binoculars, that’s for sure! 

The Pitons are Volcanic plugs, but they have been dormant since the 1700s, so there’s no need to worry about having to escape an eruption on your trip. 


Fun Fact:

The Pitons were made an official UNESCO World Heritage site back in 2004, too. And yes, you can climb them. Each to their own, I guess!

Where is Pigeon Island?

Pigeon Island is a 44-acre national landmark in Gros Islet… a huge green area in the north-west, basically. It is the pinnacle of a historic landmark. All over the island are artefacts telling the story of Pirate gangs, the American Civil War and Fort Rodney.


Fun fact:
In 1972, Pigeon Island was actually artificially joined to the western coast of the mainland by a man made causeway, which went on to form Rodney Bay Marina. 


Anyway, back to sea trekking. Although you don’t need to take anything with you, it’s recommended that you take a water camera. You obviously want to prove you’ve walked along the seabed to all your friends, family, and followers, right?
