A long parade of restaurants in the parish of Christ Church, there's also market stalls, rum shacks, traditional Bajan restaurants, clubs and chic boutiques to make this the place to come day or night, for a livelier scene. Alongside some of the most exclusive hotels and resorts on the island, it’s a popular spot for visitors where diverse cultures meet and mingle. Browsing the shops and stalls during the day is a lot of fun for all the family, then, as night falls, the shopping experience makes way for the revellers who come across the island looking to party. Try the renowned Bajan Roots and Rhythms held at the Plantation Garden for an explosion of Caribbean music, dance and even dinner.
If you’re looking for a quieter time, St Lawrence can be that place too. The tropical beaches are just as appealing. Take the stunning white sands of Dover Beach, just a 5-minute walk from St Lawrence Gap with a playing field to watch the local cricketers doing one of the many things they do best. Then take a romantic boardwalk stroll in the evening under a clear starry sky. With the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary and wetlands right nearby, and Bridgetown, Barbados’ smart capital, just a 10-minute drive away, there’s plenty to do, making this one popular destination.
