Do not use a card to pay for entrance!
Unfortunately, I used a debit card to pay for my entrance and the money was taken twice. As nice as this visit was it was not worth paying twice for.
I have contacted the National Trust and spoken to Adderla Francoise, and despite providing a screenshot of the two transactions and the receipts they refuse to accept that payment was made twice.
Also, be aware that if it rains it can be very slippery and treacherous climbing the peaks.

Good afternoon Ms Brown, We are glad you enjoyed your visit to the Pigeon Island National Landmark but we are disappointed that you have chosen to present this unfortunate issue on this forum in this way, as something the Saint Lucia National Trust is being dishonest about. We handle many credit and debit card transactions daily, the vast majority of which are without issue. We understand that on your end, it appears a double transaction has gone through, but reiterate we have not received a double payment. On the rare occasion when a connection error causes a double payment, we contact our bank - as was done in your case, with our staff on duty even contacting the relevant Accounts Department staffer on her day off - to follow up with our bank. When a double charge has indeed occurred, it shows up on our close-of-day report and is always refunded immediately. As advised in our email to you, our bank confirmed that there is no double payment from your card on our end, thus we confirm again that have not received double payment. We cannot send you a screenshot of our close of day transaction report as it contains other guests' credit card information, however our email confirming we did not receive the funds is an official communication from us which you can use to pursue the issue with your bank. We advise again that you contact your debit card issuer Monzo, to resolve this unfortunate error as it appears to be on their end. Since our team is copied in the email from you in which you copied to your Monzo contact, Monzo will be able to further liaise with our team if their team is unable to independently track and resolve the issue. We also kindly ask that you please edit your post to not include the name of our staff member as she has done all in her power to assist in resolving this issue and this presents her in a bad light which we wholeheartedly believe is not justified.

I have visited Pigeon Island twice, once in 2017 and last month (August 2022).

The 1st time we went was with a guide from our Hotel (Royalton) however, we only had a quick look about and spent less than 1hr there!

This time we went with friends (another couple) and took our time, reading the information plaques and fully exploring the grounds and buildings.

We hiked to the top of both peaks and the views were stunning.

Take a bottle of water and wear decent shoes (not flip flops) as the climb to the top of the 2nd peak is a bit of a challenge with no man made path to follow...

We took so many great photos it was 100% worth the $10 entrance fee per adult.

I guess we spent around 3hrs there exploring and taking photos etc...

Tips: There are toilets just inside the entrance gate and a small beach to cool off in after your hike.

Highly recommended.

Please give me a thumbs up if you liked my review ;)

We walked to Pigeon Island from our hotel, The Royalton. It is only a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel but considerably more by the time you reach the top.

The view from the top is absolutely worth the effort of getting there. The final stretch is a fairly steep rocky climb so wear appropriate shoes, not flip flops.

There is a small fee for accessing this area as it is a national park.

Also worth noting that there are a few bars at the bottom on the causeway which are well stopping at for a drink. When we were there it was largely locals watching the cricket which gave a really nice atmosphere.

Spent a relaxing morning at Pigeon Island. Stunning place. I personally did not go to the top. My family did and said it took around 15 minutes. Really worth the effort. Don't wear flip flops as the last stretch is very difficult. 100% worth the hike. Views amazing.
Spent time at one of the beaches. Saw a massive starfish and chatted with Joanne, park ranger for ages. She told us all about the Turtles and how many hatched a few days before. The rangers helped them to the sea. A little while later Joanne came back to tell us a leatherback turtle had come on to the beach, but left without laying any eggs.
Definetly worth 26 ec to get onto the island

Had a lovely morning exploring the island. We should have done a little more research as we didn't have the correct footwear to explore further.

We came here on a very hot, cloudless day and it was really challenging, but definitely worth the visit. Pigeon Island is a beautiful national park with some interesting history. We self guided but I think it would have been better with a tour guide to give more history, as although the signs are informative I think it would have improved the experience.
We got a taxi here and it was easy to find, and we spent a few hours walking around, and climbing to the peaks to enjoy the views. There were pretty flowers and lots of birds when we visited. The beaches are gorgeous too and I wish we'd had time for snorkelling as it looked like people were enjoying it here.

Not to be missed - a truly special, beautiful place to visit! The views from the top of the hill are breathtaking and well worth the walk up.

Had a great time at Pigeon Island. We had a private tour, learned so much history about the area, and plants/trees along the trail. The views from the top were amazing and I would highly recommend.
