Pigeon Island is a 44 acre islet located on the northern tip of St. Lucia.  It was once an island surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, but in 1972 a man-made causeway was built to connect the island to the mainland.  It features two peaks that offers extraordinary views along with two British Forts that were previously used to spy on French Ships heading for neighboring Martinique.
