Pigeon Island National Landmark represents the cultural and historical changes in St. Lucia's history. Located in the north west of the island. This beautiful island reserve covers 44 acres. Originally an island surrounded by water, Pigeon Island was joined to the mainland in 1972 with the construction of a man made causeway. Protected by the St. Lucia National Trust since 1979, Pigeon Island is now a protected area in which visitors and locals can learn about and enjoy the rich history and beauty of the reserve.
Pigeon Island was first occupied by the Amerindians, mainly Caribs.The island was later occupied by pirates whose leader was a Norman Captain called Francois Le Clerc. He had a wooden leg and was known to the French as Jambe de Bois. He would sneak out and attack the passing Spanish, French and English ships! There is now a restaurant named in his honour on the island!
In 1778, the French, as owners of the island declared war on the British. The British retaliated by attacking them in St.Lucia and capturing the island, building a Naval Base at Gros Islet Bay and heavily fortifying Pigeon Island. From that vantage point, they were able to monitor the French fleet in Martinique. In 1782, they defeated of the French at the Battle of the Saints . Pigeon Island changed hands 14 times between the English and French before finally being won by the English. Remains of the guns, forts, barracks and kitchens are all over the island and a museum now gives unique insight into how the island was controlled and it's importance to the development of St. Lucia.
