The Pitons

Gros and Petit Piton are not just St. Lucia's pointiest (and most photographed) landmarks, they're also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and are worthy adversaries for hikers. It's an athletic rite of passage to ascend Gros Piton, the second-highest peak on St. Lucia at 798 meters (2,618 feet). Count on uneven paths, a steep incline, two to three hours each direction and sore muscles for days (insert massage appointment here). The reward, however, is a stellar view over the island and bragging rights when you return to flat earth.
