A bit exaggerated some small souvenir outlets a grocery nothing too much. This maybe due to the difficult economic period the island is going through. Tourist are very well respected by nationals.

We stayed at Sandals which was only a short walk to the shops and restaurants in St Lawrence Gap. In our opinion it was very downmarket with mainly souvenir shops and ordinary restaurants. Beware the freewheeling chickens in the road. We bought some souvenirs which...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.
