In honor of Placencia’s proud history as a vibrant fishing village, for the 8th year in a row, a fun fishing tournament will be held when the 2023 Placencia Lobsterfest takes place between July 14th and July 16th. Which day is most important? Saturday the 15th. That’s the day avid fishing fans will show up to compete, and you’re welcome to come up with any excuse you like to be part of this event.
You can even save money by booking accommodations at one of the tournaments’ most enthusiastic silver level sponsors. Laru Beya Resort—in the Stann Creek District where enjoying all types of marine activities are on the resort’s menu year round–wants you to take advantage of the property’s current Summer Flash Sale and save $80 per night on a package loaded with perks.
Fun and tradition meet at this annual event
Once upon a time, this 2-day fishing event was considered one of Placencia’s most high-profile events each September, but it’s now a one-day event on July 15th thus the competition will be even keener. “Massive cash prizes await the successful fishermen and women,” said the organizers and 2023 won’t be an exception. Whoever catches the biggest fish within specific categories grabs a prize and bragging rights, and since Lobsterfest is held at the same time, you’re invited to fuel your performance by eating enough seafood to keep you at the top of your game.
Happily, the tournament won’t be the only highlight of your Laru Beya stay. Guests enjoy a wealth of amenities that include a lush beachfront, infinity swimming pool, and use of complementary kayaks and Hobie Cat sailboats. Borrow a bicycle from the resort’s inventory. It’s the ideal way to see all 16 miles of the Placencia Peninsula—or at least some of it, if you want to save your energy for the fishing tournament! Add spa services, a rental golf cart and attach your choice of add-ons to your all-inclusive package.
Stay at a tournament sponsor’s property for all the right reasons
Laru Beya Resort management and staff love nothing more than sponsoring events that take place along the Placencia coast and lagoon because they want to help promote the nation’s aquatic scene, so expect your hosts to pull out all stops to make sure you’re appreciated big time from the moment you arrive. Exquisite personal service and an enviable weekly tour menu tell you all you need to know about extras you can expect.
Dining? Yes, please. Laru Beya’s restaurant page shows you the kinds of feasts that will be placed before you when you enjoy gourmet meals included in your package, and if you feel grateful to be staying at a resort that’s so guest-centered, thank staff for their “silver level” sponsorship. They appreciate kudos, and they’ll be happy to snap a pic of you holding your catch, whether it’s a winner or not so much!
