After a bout of food poisoning, perhaps brought on by chicken from a local stand in Gros Islet or perhaps by homemade ice cream, the only other trip we managed during our St Lucia vacation was to Pigeon Island National Park. It was about a 40 minute walk from our guesthouse. There’s a couple of sites of dubious historical importance, but there’s also a couple of very nice (though small) beaches. They were much cleaner than the other beaches we saw directly around our hotel. There’s a little restaurant inside the park (Jambe de Bois) but it was closed Christmas Day, the day we were there. The view from Pigeon Island was towards the Sandals resort and Rodney Bay.
The beach has showers and restrooms. There is an admission cost to the park, but it wasn’t very expensive.
We also wandered over to the other side of the Pacific side of the island, where the waves were much rougher.
