South Caicos Restaurants and Dining

The quiet island of South Caicos doesn’t support large number of restaurants, yet for its small size, the dining choices are varied and excellent.

The island’s two new luxury resorts, East Bay Resort and Sailrock Resort, each feature a gourmet restaurant. BLU Bar and Grill at East Bay Resort serves international and local flavours, and The Great House Restaurant at Sailrock Resort offers Caribbean and international fusion dishes.

A favourite Cockburn Harbour establishment is Sunset Bar and Café, which offers local cuisine and seafood dishes.

The Ocean & Beach Resort at Tucker Hill also has an in-house restaurant, which boasts of some of the finest views of any restaurant in the country. The outdoor patio faces the Admiral Cockburn National Park and Long Cay, and the range of blue and turquoise ocean hues of this coastal region is breath-taking.

The luxury resorts on South Caicos typically offer complimentary breakfast for guests.

Fresh Seafood

South Caicos is the capital of the small-scale fishing industry in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and as such local seafood plays an important part of the island's cuisine.

Conch, lobster, snapper, grouper, wahoo and mahi-mahi are brought in fresh almost every day, and are caught in some of the cleanest tropical Atlantic Ocean water on the planet. The quality and difference of the fresh seafood is unmistakable.

If you’re visiting South Caicos for the excellent sport fishing, one of the island’s restaurants may be able to prepare the day’s catch.

Reservations and Opening Times

Due to the relatively few visitors that make it to South Caicos, the island’s restaurants may not keep regular hours. We highly advise reserving in advance for dinner.

Some restaurants in the Turks and Caicos may close on certain days of the week or during the late summer and autumn Atlantic hurricane season. If you’re visiting South Caicos on a day trip from Providenciales, establishments are often able to accommodate your schedule if contacted in advance, especially if your party is greater than two.

Likewise, the resort restaurants are usually able to cater to dietary requests if when given appropriate notice.

Prepared and packed lunches are available from many of the local restaurants upon request.

Groceries

Many of the island’s accommodation feature kitchenettes or full kitchens, so it’s an option to prepare meals on your own during your stay.

South Caicos supports three small groceries stores, which stock a range of basic dry goods, produce, and frozen meat and poultry. The selection of fresh vegetables, specialty, and gourmet items is quite limited, so you may want to consider bringing some supplies from one of the larger Providenciales grocery stores when connecting to South Caicos.

If you’re simply visiting South Caicos on a day trip, the island’s shops are great for cold drinks and snacks.
