Anyone who knows anything about Barbados will be familiar with all the hype surrounding St Lawrence Gap.
All things touristy
Down to earth
Close to Oistins and Bridgetown
It just wouldn’t be right not to spend at least a few nights in the thick of St Lawrence Gap, it’s the opposite of the quiet (expensive) resort laden west coast.
The Gap is most lively on a Saturday night.
Taxis never cease to drop off revellers at the top of the Gap each evening.
If you want a quiet night with a cup of cocoa, don’t go to St Lawrence Gap!
That said, before holidaying in Barbados I had read a lot of reviews/comments about St Lawrence Gap from various websites and social media. A lot of people seemed to be saying the Gap isn’t as lively as it was in its hay day.
However, it is still lively enough!
While we staying up on the West coast for a while, a beach seller (who claimed to be a distant relative of Rihanna) warned us to be careful when going to St Lawrence Gap; she talked about the rise in crime and how she didn’t think it was as safe as it used to be.
Thankfully, we encountered no trouble whilst staying at St Lawrence Gap, and I guess trouble can happen anywhere these days.
The calm before the crowd
At the top of the Gap, opposite the Yellow Bird Hotel, you will see a lovely ocean front dotted with fishing boats, and frequented by fishermen – who clean and sell their catch on a morning (and evening).
