ISLAND SUNDOWN


After the sun goes down the fun goes on. St. Lucia has several liming zones— liming being the local way to say ‘hang out’. Rodney Bay Village proposes the largest concentration of restaurants, bars and nightclubs within one area. There is good food, good music and good company all night long. For those who want to go further a field, many villages around St. Lucia offer weekend night time fish fiestas.

COASTLINE SUNSET CRUISES

Sunset Cruises normally depart 5 pm and sail the Caribbean coastline until the sun disappears beneath the horizon. Champagne, rum punches and soft drinks are usually served on board. Ask your tour operator or your hotel tour desk for more information.

STREET PARTY - GROS ISLET

The original street lime. Gros Islet Friday Night on Friday evenings has been in existence for over 20 years. Every Friday night the barbecue grills come out onto the sidewalks and glowing coals sizzle beneath chicken and conch kebabs. Tables and chairs are set up in the
streets. All the bars down Gros Islet’s main street are a hive of activity with visitors and St. Lucians. Speakers set up on street corners keep the audience hopping with a variety of Caribbean rhythms.

FISH FIESTA - DENNERY

The Fish Fiesta takes place every Saturday night from 6pm in the Atlantic village of Dennery, a 45 minute drive from Castries. Seafood specialities include grilled fish, steamed fish, fried fish and lambi or conch. Music is provided by a sound system with a DJ who takes special requests from clients. The Dennery Police Force is on patrol.

FRIDAY SEAFOOD FEAST - ANSE LA RAYE

This village, just south of Castries, on the west coast, offers an excellent Friday night fish feast. Starting from 6pm, the evening is organised by the Vendor’s Association of Anse La Raye. Tables are set up in the middle of the street overlooking the bay, while the cooking is done in booths that line the two sides of the road. There is lobster in season and a variety of seafood, barbecued, fried or cooked en papillote. Be sure to try the authentic fish braff made with daurade or mahi-mahi. Soak up the gravy with roasted or fried bakes. There is music and, once a month, a live band provides the entertainment. The local police force looks after security. The Anse la Raye Fish Fiesta started three years ago and has become one of the most popular places to visit. It has also brought much needed income to this small coastal village.

J.J.S PARADISE - MARIGOT BAY

J.J.s PARADISE in Marigot Bay is a great place to lime. Every Wednesday it’s Seafood Night and happy hour continues all night. During the high season, J.J. puts on an all-you-can-eat buffet on Thursday night. Reservations are required. Call (758)451-4076 or VHF 16 if you are
coming by boat.
