Pitons Waterfall

St Lucia

In the mood for a dip in tepid waters? Make a beeline for this picturesque cascade surrounded by lush forest and fed by a mix of natural streams and underground thermal sulfur springs from Soufrière volcano. There are two small concrete pools fed by the main waterfall and another at the end of a side channel. You can shower under the flow but watch out for the slippery rocks.

It's on the road to Jalousie Plantation.
