The island is volcanic, and very mountainous. The highest point is Mount Gimie, 3120 feet. The Pitons, two mountainous volcanic plugs, are the most famous local landmark, and are located on the western side of the island near the city of Soufriere.

As we drove around the island we passed huge banana plantations. And the bananas we bought in the market were the best I'd ever tasted -- sweet and creamy. We also saw lots of cashew trees. The cashew is the appendage hanging off the bottom of the fruit. It cannot be eaten raw.
