The Caribbean Island of Saint Lucia is known for its two cone-shaped mountains—the Pitons—towering out of its southwest coast. The two volcanic spires, Gros Piton and Petit Piton, standing 2,619 feet and 2,438 feet high, respectively, are managed in an 11.5 square mile reserve, which also protects the neighboring forest, 7 miles of coastline and coral reefs. Both Pitons are climbable, and tourists who scale the summits can also explore the nearby remains of the volcano that produced the spires long ago.
