Saint Lucia’s electric nightlife ensures that you are still having an amazing vacation long after you have left the beach. Whether you are searching for a great party atmosphere, or an intimate dinner for two, Saint Lucia has something fun for you after sunset. If you want to party with the locals, head to Gros Islet for their Friday Night Street party. Expect lots of Caribbean-influenced music courtesy of Saint Lucia’s best DJs and local artists. And you don’t have to take a break from the dancing when you get hungry! Nosh on food from one of the street’s many BBQ grills serving to partygoers. There are many nightclubs and bars throughout Saint Lucia, offering everything from country line dancing (really!) to salsa. Are you more of a foodie than a dancer? Visit one of the island’s many food festivals. Go to Anse-la-Raye for the Friday Night Fish Fry to Canaries Creole Pot for their monthly menu filled with local treats! And for a quiet night out, check out popular restaurants like The Coal Pot, a French-influenced waterfront spot, or Rainforest Hideaway, only accessible by a short boat ride. While there, have a cocktail featuring local rums for a uniquely Saint Lucia experience. Helpful tip: When headed out for the evening, dress “smart casual.” Wear lightweight cotton to keep cool, and bring an extra layer for later in the night. Women should wear dresses or long slacks and men don’t need a tie, but should wear a collared shirt.
