There is so much to do in St Lawrence Gap that it can be difficult to know where to begin. Aside from the bars, clubs and restaurants in the evening, the majority of visitors to this place spend most of their time at the beach. Due to slightly windier conditions than the west coast, there are some prime spots for both surfing and windsurfing. Away from the beach, there are still many things to do and see, including a visit to Tyrol Cot Heritage Village which is now a craft village where you can watch expert artisans in their workshops. It isn’t just adults having all the fun in this resort either; a trip on the Atlantis III submarine is a big hit with kids.
