Rod­ney Bay is filled with his­tory, scenic views, fun and friendly Saint Lu­cian peo­ple and it is the night life Mecca of the is­land!

Rod­ney Bay, named af­ter Ad­mi­ral Rod­ney who es­tab­lished the fort at Pi­geon Is­land, is part of the Gros Islet district. A trip to the nearby Pi­geon Is­land will present you with a rich his­tory les­son of how Ad­mi­ral Rod­ney in 1782 from his look­out point at Pi­geon Is­land saw that the French were amass­ing their naval strength and gave chase to suc­cess­fully de­feat them.

Apart from his­tory, Rod­ney Bay has some of the best beaches on is­land—a per­fect place to get a tan or take in the beau­ti­ful sun­set. Rod­ney Bay Vil­lage is the place to find the best restau­rants, wa­ter­ing holes and night­clubs, not to men­tion great places to get lo­cal cui­sine.

On the road to Rod­ney Bay Vil­lage are ven­dors sell­ing their lo­cally made crafts, every­thing from beaded neck­laces to grass wo­ven hats and let’s not for­get the is­land’s two largest shop­ping malls! From cer­tain points you can get a spec­tac­u­lar view of Pi­geon Is­land and of course there’s the view of Rod­ney Bay at night— sim­ply breath­tak­ing!
