Since it was our last day, we took a hike to the nearby Pigeon Island. You can see the Sandals resort with the red roofs below.
It looks like it is peninsula, but the British and French built up a causeway over time to maintain the fort.
It is a great hike as you can get in the national park for $7 (per person) and explore around. There are nice placards to explain the history. You can see the fort above.
They even have original guns from the 1800s still up at the top. Caution: don’t try climbing in the rain, the walkway will be so slippery and dangerous because the rock paths are steep.
Now, if you are brave, you can truly hike (I mean climb) up to the nearby peak where the gun slope winches were used. It was VERY challenging and steep, but a fun adventure if you are fit. See the fort in the distance?
and when you get to the top, the views of the surrounding area and other islands is amazing. If you speak French, you can see Martinique in the distance.
