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.
The local drinking age in the Turks and Caicos is 18.
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).

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 flavours.
Bugaloos is another island favourite 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.
