Moreover, there are various water sports available to all tourists, which include diving and snorkeling.

Food is a major part of the life on the island and tourists can devour in a wide range of local and international cuisines. It’s rich in seafood, as the island offers numerous fishing spots. It’s no wonder that Forbes magazine named the island an important culinary destination!

So what are the best dishes you should try in Turks and Caicos?

Lobster tails

Seafood is greatly eaten in Turks and Caicos, and lobster tails are an absolute delicacy there. Whether you have it with the tail or without it is up to you. They’re actually a staple in the Caribbean, and are typically enjoyed with garlic butter sauce and a tall glass of beer. The lobster tails at Seven Star Resorts’ fine-dining restaurant “Seven” is immensely popular.

Snapper

This is also popular on the island, and it’s typically served whole. Almost every exclusive menu in the Providenciales, Middle and North Caicos Islands features this dish. It’s usually grilled and served with lemon capers and shallot butter sauce. You’ll generally notice it to be quiet flaky and moist as it’s usually caught on the same day.

Conch

You’ll find conch being offered at almost every bar or restaurant in the islands. The mollusk provides soft white meat, and when it’s made into ceviche, the meat is perfectly mixed with sweet peppers, lime, and red onions. Conch is served in a variety of ways including conch salads and conch fritters.

Mr. Groupers’ Fish Burgers

This is a popular restaurant that is well-known for its delicious fish burger. It’s tender, lightly seasoned, and cooked to perfection. It’s also affordable, and is situated in a quiet spot away from the bustling area near the Grace Bay Road.

Mahi Mahi

This is another dish you can’t leave the islands without. It’s presented in numerous ways so you can enjoy it as an appetizer, salad, or entrée. The ray-finned fish is usually seasoned, tenderly grilled, and served with vegetables or rice. If you wish to spice it up a little, try having the tandoori flavored one with curry.
