Pigeon Island National Park is located on the northern end of the island and is situated near Splash Island Water Park, so there are tons of activities for all the family. The beach boasts crystal clear waters and is ideal for snorkeling enthusiasts. On the grounds, there are two restaurants, a rum bar and there is a floating bar offering refreshing tropical drinks.
Take a short scenic hike to the top of Pigeon Island and visit Fort Rodney and Signal Peak for just an $8 entrance fee, where you will be greeted with incredible views of St Lucia and its neighboring island Martinique.
Getting to Pigeon Island will set you back around $30 on way in a taxi. However, I would recommend splitting it up with Reduit Beach as they are right next to each other, this way you get to visit two different beaches and your kids will get to visit Splash Island Water Park too.
Food and Drink:
Located on the beachfront you will find Jambe De Bois, offer fresh food to cater for every taste, they offer everything from salads, pasta dishes, fresh fish and chicken fillets. There’s plenty of shade, lots of seating and even live music. You can take a quick shuttle bus or taxi to Reduit Beach where you will find a wide selection of different restaurants at the Gros Islet Quarter.
There’s plenty to do at Pigeon Island so you won’t get bored here, take the short 15-minute hike to the top of Fort Rodney for some stunning views and great family photo opportunities, the entrance fee is only $8. Other activities include snorkeling and a Segway tour.
If you really want to explore the ocean in style then why not try a Sea Trek Tour, simply pop on a helmet and literally walk under the water keeping you head fully dry!
Beach chairs can be purchased for approximately $5-7, although there are plenty of grass and shaded areas to lay your beach towel down.
