Friday Night at Oistins Fish Fry: Barbados

Oistins is a fishing village in Christ Church, Barbados (not far from St Lawrence Gap).

Oistins fish fry is an absolute must, especially when you’re in Barbados for the first time.

The food may not be free but you pay nothing for the music and atmosphere.

The vibe here is buzzing, with music and smells of cooked food in the air.

Locals and tourists flock down for a night out.

Just keep your fingers crossed that it doesn’t rain, as deep/broad puddles and sloppy sand pathways will surely follow.

The main stage is the largest, (where lots of people ran for shelter during the downpour) and attracts street dancers and the larger crowds.

There are smaller stage/dance areas, such as the line dancing calypso set, which spilled outside with dancers and spectators alike.

You will find rows of huts all serving a range of cooked fish dishes for you to choose from.

Open fire grills are flamingΒ brightly while smokey barbecue aromas waft through the air.

Craft and souvenir stalls are also dotted around in case you fancy a bit of shopping, and there will be a spot for the domino players, who play with the kind of enthusiasm I would expect to be reserved for an Olympic feat or world cup final!
