Amazing things to do in St. Lucia

1. Hike Gros Piton – St. Lucia’s most iconic landmarks, The Pitons are two volcanic formations that rise up over the Caribbean Sea.

Pictured on the country’s flag, these popular mountains are the most popular attraction and take only around two hours to climb up and another two hours to descend the Gros Piton.

2. Visit the Toraille Waterfall - Just a quick two-minute walk from parking, visit this attraction to swim under an amazing waterfall.

The cool waters are refreshing after hiking Gros Piton and are not too deep that you cannot stand up under the falls for a great experience.
