Late opening hours and new attractions at Pigeon Island National Landmark for August
8th August 2022
The management and Staff of the Saint Lucia National Trust would like to inform their patrons that the Pigeon
Island National Landmark will amend weekend opening hours to allow patrons to enjoy longer afternoons at the
Landmark during this month.
Starting Saturday 6th August, and continuing each weekend until the end of August, the Pigeon Island National
Landmark will open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Saturdays and Sundays. If the trail period goes well, these late
hours will be extended into September.
Week-day hours remain 9:30 am to 5:00 pm with the exception of Tuesdays when the Landmark will open to the
public at 11am. This is to facilitate regular staff meetings, training and development.
The management and staff would also like to invite you to enjoy a visit to the recently recreated Interpretation
Centre located in the National Trust Headquarters building. Here you can learn about the various ruins on Pigeon
Island and see artefacts from colonial and Amerindian history and read about the role of Pigeon Island in the past.
New attractions have also recently been added to the Landmark. Kids of all ages can enjoy posing as a pirate or
soldier and the more adventurous can enjoy the new “Watt a Trail” which has improved access to Signal Peak
where you can enjoy superb views of the north of Saint Lucia. These new attractions and the Interpretation Centre
are free to everyone once inside the Landmark, however, the Trust is also setting up easy ways that patrons who
have enjoyed their visit can contribute by donation via QR Code (linked to the website donation portal) or in cash
at the Gate House.
You can also apply to become a member of the Trust: Members of the Trust enjoy various activities exploring Saint
Lucia, membership meetings and newsletters and of course the ability to contribute to the conservation of Saint
Lucia’s natural and built heritage. People wishing to apply to become members of the Trust may fill in an
application form at the Gate House at Pigeon Island or apply online at www.saintlucianationaltrust.com
Everyone is invited to come and enjoy Pigeon Island National Landmark and the new attractions. Tag us in your
