Eat like a local at Thursday night Fish Fry

One event that is a must-do while vacationing on Turks and Caicos is the Thursday night Fish Fry. Just a short cab ride away, discover the true flavor of the island with some of the best local tastes in town.

Tastes of the town

Island specialties such as jerk chicken, conch fritters, just-caught fish and an array of fresh seafood are cooked on the spot by small vendors. Popular options are Froggies on Da Beach, Blue Hills Native Cuisine, Uncle Dough’s, Hole in the Wall and Middle Caicos Café among others.

Not just great food, enjoy top-notch rum punches mingling with locals and dancing to the rhythms of a steel band.

The rum punch, too, is mixed in a way locals swear can’t be replicated by any hotel bar.

The Turks and Caicos Fish Fry takes place every Thursday from 5:30-9:30 p.m. at Bight Park.
