Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Gros Islet, St Lucia your home away from home

The town of Gros Islet lies in the far north of the Caribbean island St Lucia. The Rodney Bay Area of the small town caters to the tourists visiting the island with exclusive beachfront properties, hotels and apartments. The crystal clear Caribbean water, overwhelmingly beautiful island scenery, as well as the party vibe of the town, make Gros Islet holidays a popular choice for those visiting St Lucia.

Things to do in Gros Islet, St Lucia

The main attraction in Gros Islet is the Friday Night Street Party, otherwise know as the “Jump Up”. This weekly party features sidewalk barbecues and vendors, and revelers can dance in the streets to the reggae, calypso and zouk music until the wee hours of the morning. During the other nights of the week you can visit some of the many clubs in the area. Renting one of the holiday apartments in Gros Islet is a must if you enjoy a good party.

If you are looking for a quieter Gros Islet holiday experience then you can visit the peaceful Pigeon Island National Park, where you can hike up signal hill. The view from the top is truly breathtaking. There are also military ruins from Colonial times as well as from World War 2. Pigeon Island is also home to the world famous St Lucia Jazz Festival each May. The island was artificially joined to the mainland at the Rodney Bay Marina.

At the Marina you can hire a boat and go sailing in the spectacular blue water. Other water activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing and kayaking. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land you can sunbathe on one of the sandy beaches (Reduit, Windjammer, or Vigie) or relax in your Gros Islet villa.

Places to visit on holiday in Gros Islet, St Lucia

No trip to St Lucia would be complete without taking a trip to the world’s only drive-in volcano at Sulphur Springs Park near Soufrière on the southwest coast of the island. The small town is also home to the Diamond Botanical Gardens with its picturesque Diamond Falls and mineral baths. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty the island has to offer.

If you are renting a Gros Islet villa and can pull yourself away from the stunning beaches, a great way to explore the island is to go on a plantation tour. Various sugar, cocoa and fruit plantations offer tours where you can watch how the products are processed and enjoy some of the local cuisine.

Fantastic holiday accommodation

5 of 5
We really had a wonderful time at Cotton Bay.The villa was superb.We travelled as two couples and we had plenty of space.Because at the moment the resort is being refurbished it was only occupied by the private rentals which meant that we almost had the fantastic pool to ourselves!At the moment there are no shops or bars at the resort due to the redevelopment but there is one restaurant on the nearby plantation beach(Marjories).Rodney Bay is about 15 mins by car.We hired a car for the first week of our three week stay and toured the whole island.What a great experience! If you stay at Cotton Bay the peace and tranquillity are perfect but you need either a car or be prepared to pay for taxis (about 40EC to Rodney Bay).Lorna our property manager was an absolute star! She met us at the villa and showed us everything we needed to know.A local mobile phone was provided loaded with numbers for taxis,herself,emergencyand security.This was really useful. We would definitely recommend Casa Creole.It was simply beautiful and we had a fantastic holiday!

Thoroughly delightful!

I've been visiting St Lucia for over a decade and 'Hibiscus', in its peaceful private gated villa community, is by far the best and most homely location. Ideally situated within easy reach of Rodney Bay, the marina, golf course and Gros Islet's lively Friday night street festival our stay was thoroughly relaxing and we'll definitely be booking again.
