Gros Islet Friday Night

The world renowned street party!

For those fortunate to be staying in Saint Lucia on a Friday night, this is unquestionably the big night out, and the Friday night 'jump up' in the northern village of Gros Islet has attained legendary status. It's a genuinely local event, but tourists are more than welcome to join in, shake their booty, bump and grind. DJs set sound systems up outside the restaurants and try to outdo each other on volume, rhythm and beats. The street party goes on until the early hours, and while shaking your stuff is firmly encouraged, nobody is really going to complain if you sit back sipping a rum and coke.
