Things to do

We will be visiting 9/9 - 9/16. We are staying at Calabash Cove and looking for some ideas of things to do or tours that are recommended. We don't want to spend a ton of money. We like beaches, snorkeling, trying new restaurants and local bars. Also anywhere to find some live reggae?

I've read through them. I didn't see anything addressing live music.

Sept is the height of low season, some places close for the month and there will be little activity around the island as far as music, etc. You may, just may, find some in Rodney Bay, but there are no reggae clubs around the area - you will find that more in Jamaica, etc. Some bars play reggae along with other Caribbean music including soca and calypso, dancehall, etc., but live bands will be very few and far between, and reggae bands are even fewer and farther between. There is one that plays a few hotels (Coconut Bay, Cap Maison - I think they are still there, but don't know which night), etc. - 4th World. They don't play around at any clubs though. Your resort should have some live music one or 2 nights. Coco Palm has a band on Thursday nights. A few other resorts (open to the public) in Rodney Bay have bands one or 2 nights, but they are low key vibes.....

Good luck and enjoy your visit.

Check out Delirious Bar for events and good atmosphere particularly Fridays and Saturdays.. Located in Rodney Bay. Jump Up on Friday Nights in Gros Islet, Diamond Steel Band sometimes play at the Rex St Lucian hotel. Local restaurant Laurels has a guitarist sometimes. Cap Maison Cliff restaurantusually has a band 2-3 times a week. Excellent restaurant but expensive.

Delirious can be fun, but most definitely not reggae or local music, it's Top 40s/dance music all the way, with a mix of tourists and locals - great cocktails. Nice vibe, usually one of the busier places in RB. The Jump Up is fun on Fridays - dancehall is the prevalent music, very loud with huge speaker set up, dancing in the street, etc.

Country music is huge around the island I Prio's Country Palace is hopping on weekends!

Rehab has mostly raggea/soca/calypso (dj) - nice outdoor bar a few doors down from Delirious.

Again though, you'll be here during the slowest of low season, so most places will be very quiet. Enjoy...

Alright, Ingram75... live music, music, music everywhere! From spontaneous drum beating on the beach to spinning DJ's in a pick-up truck and everyting in-between.

Hook up with Lambert for live music happening on island...
