Lobster In The Caribbean – The Best Place To Go?

The Caribbean is well known for its varied, vibrant and delicious cuisine – throughout the many islands you can taste a whole range of fantastic – and unique – foods and flavours… but where can you find the best lobster in the Caribbean?!

Given the location, seafood is obviously extremely popular and widely available, and we thought we would give you a tip on where you could find what we think is possibly the best lobster in the Caribbean!

Maca Bana resort in Grenada is a small hotel located next to the beautiful mile-long Magazine Beach on the south of the island. Their beachside restaurant ‘Aquarium’, as well as serving a fabulous fusion of Caribbean and international cuisine, hold a Sunday Lobster BBQ, receiving consistent rave reviews! So if your mouth is already watering at the thought, have a look at our package below and skip on over to our hotel information to find out more about this superb resort!

Jamaica Trip Diary by Tropic Breeze, Caribbean Specialists

Chantelle tells us about her visit to Jamaica in her fantastic Jamaica trip diary…

Boarding The Private Jet In Jamaica - Jamaica trip diary

After a 9 hour flight with British Airways we touched down at Kingston Norman Manley International Airport, the sun was setting and the temperature a wonderful 30 degrees. We continued through customs and immigrations – I highly recommend the fast track service which costs just $30 and includes a meet and greet service off the place – to the arrival hall which was very modern and looked newly refurbished. After a short wait we were met by our friendly driver Ernest who took us to Strawberry Hill, one of the fantastic Island Outpost collection of properties founded by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, perched 3,000ft above sea level and a 45 minute drive through the Mountain View Neighbourhood.

Island Outpost Jamaica

This week we received a visit from the lovely Siobhan of Island Outpost Jamaica. Owned by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, Island Outpost is a collection of exclusive boutique hotels in Jamaica. The hotels are well known for each having their own distinct and interesting character, and a real sense of authenticity… a true feel of luxury and opulence but in a completely unpretentious, almost casual way!
