West Indies tips

As the title suggests - looking for foodie & "to do" tips around the West Indies. Have the obvious Fodor's and LP, but local tips would be appreciated.

Anything from the Bahamas down to Curaçao.

This place in Antigua is fantastic. Just read the Tripadvisor reviews - one of them is ours. It's a little gaggle of self-catering cottages, very nicely appointed, and the Lady of the Manor, the Austrian honorary consul, and her husband are fantastic guides to the island and its food. She told us to ask for "Brother" at the fish market, and very nice fish he had, too.

Other recommendations for Antigua: Fish at Papa Zouk, and goat curry at Dennis', overlooking Ffryes Beach.

Re: West Indies tips

Foodwise, if you get to Barbados, try Champers Restaurant just by Accra beach. Great local food and you can hear the waves crashing into the rocks underneath the terrace.
Another thing which is great day out is to get an all-inclusive boat trip. I can recommend the catamarran Jammin'; as much food and drink as you want for a set price. You also get to swim with turtles and snorkle over a couple of shipwrecks.

Excellent, thanks! I might make it to both actually :-)
