Splash Island Water Park Saint Lucia

Everyone is welcome at Splash Island, the first open-water sports park in the Caribbean!

Open since 2015 it is the first of its kind in the area and it’s a great place to go for those really hot days.

Splash Island is an inflatable structure set on Reduit Beach that includes a trampoline, climbing wall, monkey bars and much more!

Children are allowed to go if they are 6 years old or older and all users are required to wear life vests.

Gros Islet Street Party

The party never ends at Gros Islet, at least on a Friday night, when the weekly party takes over this neighborhood’s streets.

Tourists mingle with locals while the music echoes in the background, from reggae to zouk and R&B.

Bar hopping and dancing are part of the movement, so don’t be afraid to join in the crowd!

If you need a food break, there are street vendors around selling delicious food, including roasted corn and barbecued chicken.

St Joseph the Worker Parish

St Joseph the Worker Parish is located in the North of the island.

The current structure was established in 1927 after a severe earthquake damaged most of the building.

Mass is mostly attended by Gros Islet residents, but everyone is welcome here.

Baywalk Mall

Open every day of the week, the Baywalk Mall is the most recent addition to Saint Lucia’s shopping scene!

Step into this two floor building and enjoy the selection of shops and restaurants. If you’re feeling lucky you can even stop by their casino.

There is also a supermarket available in case you need to stock up on some food.

From here you can walk to the Rodney Bay Village, where you will find most of the island’s hotels.

Beausejour Cricket Ground

Cricket fans must schedule a visit to the Beausejour Cricket Ground!

Established in 2002, it has a capacity for 15,000 people and was considered one of the most beautiful grounds in the world by The Telegraph.

Recently it was renamed the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, in honor of Darren Sammy, a Saint Lucian cricketer that led the West Indies team to victory at the ICC World Twenty20 in 2012 and 2016.
