There are all sorts of food on offer in St Lucia: from pizzas and fast food to Creole and Mexican cuisines. For those who want a more authentic Caribbean dining experience on their St Lucia honeymoons, ‘fish fries’ offer a unique alternative to restaurant dining. The fish fry at Anse la Rey on Friday nights provides a friendly, communal atmosphere.
Ask any St Lucia chef – presentation is everything, and attention to detail is key. Many St Lucian meat dishes will be different to ones back home, and it can be a pleasure to discover foods like chicken back, pork hocks and pig tail! It’s a fun way to spice up St Lucia honeymoons, and there’s also a rich variety of seafood on offer. Tuna, mahi mahi and snapper are just a few of the fish you can try.
There’s no better way to get into the island spirit than by sampling some coconut water, drunk directly from the split husk of the fruit. It’s a wonderful drink to try on your St Lucia honeymoons. If you’re looking to enjoy some more adult beverages, rum is the tipple of choice on St Lucia, and the island is a proud home to its own distillery. For honeymooners looking to sample more of the local flavour, try a ‘shandy’ – a drink mixed with beer, ginger ale, lemon, or sorrel.
