By land or sea, Laborie village on Saint Lucia’s southwest coast is a wonderful place to visit, and a unique place to experience an authentic way of life on the island: fishing. Any given day, the long arc of white sand known as Laborie Beach, is populated with colourful pirogues, the local fishing boats used extensively to haul in daily catch from around the coast. And it’s not just the red, green and blue painted hulls that are colourful; Saint Lucia’s fishing boats have names like ‘Respect Life,’ ‘Jah Provide’ and ‘No Retreat, No Surrender,’ sometimes without spellcheck being employed before the christening.
