Discover The Pitons St Lucia

A volcanic landscape, this part of the island is represented on all the postcards by its two rocky spurs - twin needles which shoot up in a surprisingly upright way, at an altitude of 2,625 ft above the sea. Formed by the lava of old volcanoes, these two emblematic domes are inaccessible and only to be looked at.
