We love the St Lawrence gap area and restaurants however it is not well lit and is horrible to walk on. My husband is legally blind which makes it very difficult to navigate for actually both of us. Met a local at the airport and...More

You won't go hungry on the gap, nor will you go thirsty. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, and live music venues. A few gift shops and locals selling their wares. You can get a taxi from here, but make sure you agree the...More

We were encouraged to go to this place by a friend but found it depressing. Reminded me of s south coast resort in the Uk circa 1970s. One to miss in my opinion

A good place to party. Locals and tourists alike mingle here. I wouldn’t personally stay in any of the hotels around, they’re more boutique-e and my guess is that none are more than 3 stars. For partying the gap is great but for beaches, restaurants...More

First person we encounter at St lawrence gap called himself "the pharmacist" ! For people looking to drink I guess the area is okay. Below average restaurants and definitely bring bug spray if you intend on eating in the area. Just not a "pretty" area....More

All the bars in the area are very small. If you are at Time Out Hotel then you are more in the beach area. There are only a few bars in that area. At the other end of the Gap there are quite a few.

Plenty of good bars in St Lawrence Gap which you will find so happy hour. Couple of decent karaokes in car park opposite south Gap hotel. Day trip to mount gay rum distillery is a must
