Pigeon Island National Park

In the 1550's Sain Lucia's first French settles, Jambe de Bois (Wooden Leg) used Pigeon Island as a base from which he attacked passing Spanish ships. In the 18th century the island was fortified by British admiral George Rodney and it was used to monitor the French fleet on Martinique. After hostilities between the British and the French ended, the fort was abandoned. During WWII the U.S. established a small signal station there. Pigeon Island was connected to Saint Lucia by a causeway in the 1970's. In 1979 it became a national park.

The remains of Fort Rodney are interesting to explore. There are several walking paths on the island and the beaches are usually deserted, though not very clean. The national park is 7 km north of Castries.
