St James Club, Morgan Bay

There are an unlimited (well, almost) number of things to do on Gros Islet . In one day you could climb a banana tree, ride a horse, and stand on the lip of a volcano. There are many places in Gros Islet and the surrounding area that are possible to explore on your own.

The biggest attraction, literally, is the volcano. Other, smaller, attractions include Rodney Bay, Marigot Bay, Pigeon Island National Historic Park, the various nature reserves (where you can see the nesting grounds of endangered sea turtles), mineral baths, and botanical gardens.

If you like your brewerys, go to Bounty Run Distillery. If you like beautiful views, check out The Pitons. While Gros Islet is not exactly rife with museums (although it does have art galleries), Gros Islet does have plenty of attractions.

If you bring a pair of swim trunks and sneakers, you can participate in sailing, diving, snorkeling, fishing, and running along the beach. Bring a pair of padded bike shorts, and you can go mountain biking. Bring hiking shoes, and you can go hiking. Bring some golf clothes, and a golf outing might be part of your trip. Bring a pair of tan shorts with pockets, and you can play some tennis. Take those biking shorts back out, hide them under a pair of pants, and you'll be ready to go horseback riding.

For Gros Islet, the thing they have become famous for is their Friday night “Jump-up” party. The Jump-up is no ordinary party. Tourists are attracted to it like moths are to a flame / light bulb. Multiple city blocks are closed to car traffic. Barbecue grills and beer materialize in the streets as if by magic. And then music starts to blare from hidden speakers, causing the throng of tourists to, well, jump up and dance. Music is of the R&B slash reggae slash calypso variety, which goes perfectly with the beauty of this small fishing village.
