Luxury St. Lawrence Gap Holidays

Rum and reggae

St. Lawrence Gap

Holidays to St. Lawrence Gap can be as lively or relaxed as you like. You’ll find the white sandy beaches Barbados is so famous for, as well as a thriving mixture of bars and restaurants. Spend your days on the beach, ordering drinks and snacks from the beach shacks which fringe the sands, or try some of the many watersports on offer here. In the evenings, the bars play lively Caribbean music and serve famously strong rum cocktails.

If you want to immerse yourself in the local culture, there are Bajan restaurants lining the town and providing a unique blend of spices, which flavour fresh local fish dishes, succulent meats, and produce exclusive to the Caribbean. If you want to get involved in some of the island’s activities, why not head to the Dover playing field where you can watch local players or even join in yourself.
