Perhaps more so than any other destination in the Caribbean, the distinctly French Grand Case is best known for shopping and dining.  This destination definitely caters to those who enjoy a more opulent lifestyle but does so with an inclusionary nature.  Tennis and spa days are popular activities, as are more active pursuits such as sailing and fishing. 

If you're wanting for something to do at night, be on the lookout for Mardi de Grand Case.  The street part takes place every Tuesday night between January and early April and features a Carnival-style parade, live music, food, and local artwork.  It is extremely popular and a great way to get out and mingle.
