Foodies travel from across the world to explore Caribbean cuisine and see what we’re cooking up. The food of Saint Lucia pulls from the island’s natural resources, so fruit and fresh fish are almost always on the menu. However, there are some culinary flavors in Saint Lucia that might surprise you. Here’s what you need to know when dining at Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa to get a taste for the island and give your tastebuds a delicious adventure.
Locally Harvested Fruit at Coconut Walk
Start your day with some fresh fruit at Coconut Walk, where you can find locally harvested produce including mango and pineapple. Adventurous eaters can try some breadfruit — a local favorite that is similar to the mulberry or jackfruit.
Add fruit to your breakfast plate as you fuel up for the day, or blend everything together in one of the freshest smoothies on the island. You might find this fruit again later in the day added to cocktails for a Caribbean twist!
Savory Jerk Chicken and Pork
If you just want to grab a quick bite, stop by the Jerk Treehouse for flavorful jerk chicken and pork in a casual outdoor setting. Try the chef’s secret spicy sauce and learn what makes Caribbean dishes so flavorful. The Jerk Treehouse also offers a variety of fresh-baked side dishes and fresh-squeezed sugar cane juice to wash it all down.
Quality Caribbean and Creole Cuisine
One of the best places to explore Creole flavors is in the Calabash restaurant at Coconut Bay. Dress up with your significant other in evening wear and put our chef to the test to prepare savory lamb chops and mouth-watering filet mignon.
A special treat awaits guests who dine at Coconut Bay: fresh Mahi, waiting on display until it gets cooked. Seafood lovers won’t want to leave the table as they try a variety of dishes including locally grown fruits and vegetables and locally caught fish—prepared by our seasoned chefs. It doesn’t get any fresher than right off the boat!
Enjoy Themed Dinners on the Pool Deck
Dining in the Caribbean isn’t just about the food — it’s about the experience! When you check in, ask about the different theme nights on the pool deck like Caribbean Night and Country Night. There will be food, music, dancing, and partying through the night. As you try the various flavors of the Caribbean, you can learn why islanders have such strong connections with food and family on Saint Lucia.
Whatever you eat, there’s something you can enjoy during your time at Coconut Bay. There are mouthwatering experiences around every corner and new culinary challenges to excite your taste buds.
