Anse la Raye

Anse la Raye
St. Lucia's insider take:

They're too busy partying in Gros Islet to bother much about the food, so if it's Friday night and you're hungry, head farther south to Anse la Raye, an authentic Caribbean fishing village midway up the west coast, for its weekly fish fry. Here the celebration is all about what comes out of the sea. Huge, sweet lobsters; octopus; prawns; conch; Greenshell mussels; and red snapper cooked in butter, lime juice, and lots of garlic on drum-barrel grills are what's on offer at this street party, with its communal wooden tables by the beach. Wash it all down with a Piton beer (or three), and if you're up for it, listen to some of the most brilliantly dreadful street karaoke this side of the Atlantic.—Update by Douglas Wright
