While coconuts may be best known for their contributions to sweet treats around the world, the truth is, this amazing fruit can be used for so much more. In fact, for centuries, it has been used for things as diverse as a source of nutrition, cosmetics, a remedy for ailments and even fuel.
Here in the Cayman Islands, however, we stay focused on just a couple of those uses at our annual Coco Fest on Saturday, Feb. 17.
Nuts for These Fruits
Now in its third year, Coco Fest celebrates all things coconut, from foods of all kinds to games, crafts, beauty products and even music. Naturally, the big hit is the variety of food in which this versatile fruit appears, and visitors will have endless choices, from coconut rundown and coconut calamari to ice creams, pies, kombucha, heavenly cakes, tarts, marshmallows and many others.
There will also be competition, the newest of which is the inaugural Coconut Cake Competition. So if you think your secret recipe should be considered among the best, bring it on in and let the people decide.
In addition, the award-winning documentary Bright Spot will be reshown from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and the Visual Arts Society will be sponsoring the ever-popular Kids Coconut Corner.
Coco Fest is more than just fun, though, as it helps raise funds for the NCVO’s Children’s Foster Home. So come indulge and help your friends in need at the same time.
But Stay at a Place That Has Not Gone Coconuts
Perhaps the greatest charm of the Cayman Islands is that it offers unparalleled tropical beauty, peace and warmth, both literal and figurative, while at the same time offering so many historical escapes and downright nutty, carefree fun. After all, it is in the DNA of the friendly, imaginative people who call the Caymans home. Similarly, perhaps the greatest charm of South Bay Beach Club is that we make sure you don’t miss a beat of the great sightseeing and dining options here, as well the reverence that always seems to punctuate our celebrations. At the same time, we offer luxurious rooms and treatments that cannot be matched anywhere in the Caymans. From our rooms and spas to the pools and private areas, South Bay Beach Club is the place for the most discerning travelers.
However, if you are looking for a nutty way to express yourself and enjoy quiet luxury, contact us now and prepare to go nuts.
