Owner description: Baywalk is Rodney Bay's newest, most fashionable and upscale Mall! Centrally located, it offers both locals and tourists convenient access to shopping, world class dining and gaming (entertainment) activities, unlike that Saint Lucia has ever seen. Such varied and exotic selections are what make Baywalk the heartbeat of Rodney Bay!

The shopping mall at Rodney Bay is a modern structure-most shops are inside the mall and air-conditioned. The majority of the shops are below average-their selection of clothes are totally outdated and cheaply made. Not all shops are duty free-a common misconception. The ones that are duty free require a passport and an airline ticket-otherwise, they will add tax (I don't know what their tax is).
I went their with my husband to look for a bathing suit-came out with a nice white pair of jeans. Some stores don't allow to try things on- usually white tops ( fearing they may get dirty) or tops with one size fits all label ( they don't want them to get stretched).
Chef Xavier is the best restaurant inside the mall-open for lunch and dinner. Right next to the mall, there's an american-style supermarket-good selection of food and drinks.

Hello,

We wanted to take a moment to clear up some things about duty free at Baywalk Mall as well as on the quality of our shops.

Baywalk Mall, as of February 2015, hosts 46 establishments. Baywalk Shopping Mall is a duty free zone meaning that any tenant at the mall can provide duty free incentives in their store under a few conditions. The main condition is the type of product sold, not all products fall under the option to sell Duty Free. The concept of duty free only works on imported products as these establishments pay import tax/duty to bring them into the island, however, they can sell to tourists on the account that they will be taking these products back out of the island, thus eliminating the cost of the duty. Of the our 46 tenants, 22 of them are legally allowed to be duty free. The 24 establishments that do not provide duty free include the casino, supermarket, telecommunications companies, banks, furniture stores, the pharmacy, the restaurants and bars, and other services. Of the 22 that are allowed to be duty free include jewelry shops, clothing, accessories, souvenirs, cosmetics, and fragrances and of these 22 only 4 did not exercise their right to provide duty free incentive to costumers. That means that over 80% of our shops do provide duty free shopping.

On the issue of the quality and selection of clothes being cheaply made and outdated:
Baywalk Shopping Mall is home to many authentic brands under franchises and/or official license to sell in St. Lucia. These brands include Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, Faconnable, US Polo Association, Nine West, Dockers, Levis, Land, Nautica, Kenneth Cole, Tommy Hilfiger, Payless Shoe Source, MAC Cosmetics, Nike, Adidas, Puma, Reebok. All these brands sold here are official and of authentic quality as you would find anywhere else in the world.

We are happy you enjoyed Chef Xavier at Baywalk and we encourage to visit us again. Be sure to visit Spice of India, St. Lucia's number #1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor, right here at Baywalk Shopping Mall.

Great place for tourists to spend a day shopping. the mall has a big parking and a air-conditioned part with shops. Varios clothing shops, from local to international brands are inviting everyone to spend hours there. And also men can spend money: they have a great casino and a lot of good food! it's worth visiting, not only on rainy days!

Beautiful mall at the entrance of Rodney Bay. I found everything I needed all under one roof. They have everything from a supermarket to a casino. Highly Recommended!
