There’s a wide range of bars and lounges on Providenciales. Most establishments are found in the
Grace Bay Beach area and on the
resort properties, or are with easy walking distance.
The Turks and Caicos doesn’t have the nightlife and parties of many other Caribbean destinations, yet there’s always a lively local place to be found.
As is the case with many food items, drink prices are higher here than at other regional destinations such as the Dominican Republic. Expect to pay around $7 for a pint or bottle of beer. Cocktails and mixed drinks will usually be $8-12. Local Turk’s Head beer is typically the least expensive option.
Drinking Age in Turks and Caicos
The drinking age in the Turks and Caicos is 18. Shops and liquor stores may ask to see IDs for persons that appear to be under 18 or 21.
Our local Turks Head Beer on tap.
Turk’s Head Beer
The Turks and Caicos features one locally brewed and produced beer:
Turk’s Head. It’s brewed in three beer variants: lager, amber, and an IPA (Island Hopping Ale).
Beer enthusiasts may also be interested in the factory tour, or may simply want to stock up at the source!
Many of the local bars stock Bambarra rum, which is locally mixed, bottled and distributed. It’s produced in an assortment of labels, such as Gold, Silver and Coconut, as well as canned mixed drinks with tropical flavors.
Beachfront Settings and Local Vibes
Drinks at the Coconut Grove Restaurant and Lounge.
Beachfront bar and restaurants can found on
Grace Bay and at the residential settlements of
Blue Hills and
Five Cays, and these places are a great place to watch the sunset.
Da Conch Shack are two popular sites on the beach in the old settlement of Blue Hills. The fare served is Caribbean and local favorites that primarily focus on seafood.
Bugaloo's Conch Crawl is another island favorite and is found in the fishing village of Five Cays on the southern side coast. There’s always something going on here, from live music to watching the fishermen bring in the day’s catch.
A new spot is
Coconut Grove in the
Downtown region of Providenciales, which serves great local dishes and drinks at a poolside venue. There’s also indoor billiards and the classic Caribbean game of dominoes.
