Growing out from a humble fishing village, Gros Islet has grown into a major tourist destination, with an abundance of villas, resorts, and hotels along the coast.
Get out of town with these interesting Gros Islet side-trips: Anse Cochon Beach (in Anse La Raye), Castries (WWII Memorial & Holy Trinity Anglican Church) and Soufriere (Petit Piton Trail, Morne Coubaril HIstorical Adventure Park, &more). There's lots more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Gimie, get impressive views of La Soufriere Drive-In Volcano, and enjoy the sand and surf at Vigie Beach.

To see other places to visit, reviews, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Gros Islet trip maker website.
