    Harbour Island , Bahamas, of course!!
    Harbour Island's diverse residents and mix of colourful locals make this destination a must. Aside from having one of the top ten beaches in the world, we are small island with much to offer the intrepid traveler. There are stylish shops that will outfit the most discering fashionista and local gourmet shops with fresh produce that will thrill the likes of any foodie. Check out The Dunmore Deli for fresh sandwiches and Captain Bob's Seafood & Meat Market for fresh fish . A stop at The Sugar Mill boutique will outfit you with the most beautiful attire as you set off to dine under a starlit night at either The Landing Hotel or The Rock House.Finally, a local history buff will enchant you with a walking tour of colonial homes that have been an intergral part of this island's fascinating history.

    Harbour Island, affectionately known as "Briland" welcomes visitors year round.

    Anyone visiting Nassau will tell you the "Fish Fry" is the in spot for tourist and locals alike. On weekends & holidays the Fish Fry is usually packed, everyone in search of a delicacy. If you're looking for a Daiquiri try Twin Brothers, they're known world wide for their thick, luscious strawberry daiquiris, conch fritters or conch salad. If you have time, walk around, enjoy the music & outdoor atmosphere, try your hand at karaoke and sample the various dishes offered by the various vendors...my favorite is fried snapper, with a salad and fried plantain. Barracuda is another favorite but you have to eat at your own risk.

    Although I live on the beautiful sunny Isle of Antigua, I would have to say one of my favorite islands to visit is the Island of Dominica, known as the nature island. The food, the people, the culture, the fauna...it is all awe inspiring.

    If you love nature, this is the place to be in the Caribbean. Dominica has the right to boast of some of the most beautiful waterfalls. If you have not had the pleasure of visiting Domincia, be sure to add it to your list of "places to see before I die"

    My island's Barbados, where I've lived for 14 years now. Like some of the other islands we have a regular Friday night fish fry which is a hot spot for locals and visitors alike. One of our national dishes is flying fish which is delicious served boned and fried and seasoned with a special Bajan (Barbadian) blend of herbs and hot pepper. It's great with rice, fries or breadfruit (a large tropical tree-growing fruit, which when cooked tastes similar to potato). Locals also love flying fish with cou cou which is made from cornmeal and okras and served with a tasty gravy. Of course our rum is legendary and goes down so well when mixed with a cola, or as a rum punch (which can be quite lethal to the unwary). However, here's my secret... my husband is Guyanese and I just love Guyanese dishes. Guyana is not an island but it is considered to be a Caribbean nation. Its culinary heritage is influenced by Indian cookery as around half the population are of Indian extraction. I am a vegetarian and one of my favourite Guyanese dishes is simply cobs of corn seasoned and cooked in coconut milk. It's just delicious. My husband also makes the most amazing roti (a kind of flat bread). I guess travel not only broadens the mind but is apt to broaden the waistline too!

    There are over 700 islands in the Bahamas, many of which are uninhabited. Abaco is a wonderful little island to visit with great restaurants, a lighthouse in Harbortown. Beautiful beaches.

    When in Nassau visit Paradise Island (where the Atlantis is of course) and go across the street from Atlantis. There is a restaurant called Anthony's - very good food for a good price compared to prices in the Atlantis. Downtown Nassau - the Athena is a great Greek restaurant with a balcony that overlooks the main street.

    Really good authentic Bahamian meal - jerk chicken w/peas and rice.

    Best beach with public access - Cabbage Beach on the end around the bend from the Atlantis. Really nice if you go to the right - very few people and beautiful white sand.

    Enjoy!

    Hi DiB's - in reply to your question "...what gives with the Barracuda and eating at your own risk?"

    It's sometimes known to be poisonous (not too sure how you can detect it). On the menu they will tell you that you're eating at your on risk. From what I've been told by others, who don't mind the risk, I understand the meat is sweet and delicious! However, I'm not adventurous so I stick with what I know best, Snapper.

    Hello there. The recipe for corn cobs in coconut milk (if you can call it a recipe... it's so simple), has now been posted. It's Corn on the Cob Cooked in Coconut Milk if you would like to try sometime.
