Make sure you visit and enjoy the Friday night fish fry in Oistins. A must to do! Going a bit earlier will help from waiting in some very busy lineups.

I had heard a lot about this before I visited but to be honest it wasn't as great as I had hoped. It is really busy which is to be expected but it wasn't my idea of a fun night. I enjoyed the reggae music and the bar scene but the food was disappointing. We visited again on a quieter... More

Had the best grilled lobster of my life, wish I knew the name of the place I went to so I can write a review for them. You pick out the lobster you want, she gives you the price and throws it on the grill. Comes with grilled potatoes and coleslaw. I paid 45 buck for about 10/12 ounces. Maybe... More

If you swim at Miami beach, or near Oistins be sure to wash thoroughly afterwards. There are good, clean, staffed change rooms 9-5, and outdoor showers. Bring soap and scrub. I got a bad rash on my chest and arms. In hindsight, the water is near the Oistens fish fry and fish market and there is some kind of pipe... More

If you are in the area on a friday, then this really is a must! A million options of where to eat, all offer delicious fresh fish. From 7.30pm onwards it's crazy busy with both tourists and locals. If you want it a bit quieter go around 6pm. Lots of markets stalls with interesting items too. Drinks, dancing & live... More
