La Sikwi Sugar Mill

Invergoil Estate
Anse la Raye, St. Lucia
TEL: 758-451-4245

La Sikwi (which is Creole for sugar mill) is located within the gardens of a 400-acre banana cocoa plantation belonging to the Invergoil Estate, a short distance east of Anse La Raye. Built in 1860, when sugar was St. Lucia's main export crop, the decaying site was renovated into a museum and restaurant in 1990. Tour guides demonstrate how sugar cane was turned into raw sugar and molasses. At pre-arranged times the restaurant serves authentic Creole food like salt fish and breadfruit, and drinks made from locally grown fruit. Sometimes guests are feted with live, traditional music, and drums.

Insider Tip:

You'll want to call ahead to make sure the sugar mill is open before going.
