We'll be in St. Lucia on Grandeur of the Seas in December, our third visit to the island. We walked around town to see the Cathedral and Derek Walcott Square on our first visit, and took the island tour with Cosol on our second. So now we're looking for something to do on this visit. Are there any historical sites / forts close enough for a visit? Otherwise, we were looking at Pigeon Island. How can we get there - and back reliably? Are there changing facilities / restrooms / food / chairs / umbrellas?

Thank you

Not much else nearby the poet. Vigie Beach, if you wanted strictly a beach day.
Otherwise , Pigeon Island is lively - fort, ruins, hikes, beach, restaurants. Lovely spot..
Cab is $35 one way, readily available at both the port and right outside PI Park. About 30-45 minute drive, leave plenty of time for return as there's only one road. Park entrance is $8USD pp.
Some tour companies offer a PI day which includes transport, entrance fee, chair, drinks, etc. Serenity TVL, Real St Lucia Experience, Barefoot Holidays, GemXursions , etc.
