AAA Editor Notes
Pigeon Island National Landmark is 7 mi. (11 km) n. via a man-made causeway. The 44-acre (18-hectare) park preserves the crumbling barracks, magazines and ramparts of Fort Rodney, built in the late 1700s and named for British Adm. George Rodney. From the fort's excellent vantage points, Rodney monitored the French fleet in Martinique. A hike to the top of the fort will reward visitors with a contrasting view of the lush landscape of the Caribbean side of St. Lucia and the rugged terrain of the east coast.
Hiking trails and two private beaches are on the premises. The annual St. Lucia Jazz Festival takes place here during the first week in May.
Food is available.
