While St. Lucia has some beautiful scenery, both time I have been here I have been disappointed with the visit. This trip we took the Catamaran Cruise to the Pitons which also had a beach stop. The catamaran cruise was long, crowded, and uncomfortable. The beach stop turned out to be a half-hour stay at what looked like a small black sand beach that you had to wade in to from some fairly deep water. Despite the beauty of the majestic Pitons rising from the ocean I would not take this excursion again.
