Barbados is the land of the flying fish and as such there are several fishing communities which are scattered all over the island. On weekends and some weekdays these communities come alive with local fresh fish fry ups, live music and entertainment. One such fishing community and popular delight to the taste buds is the Oistins Fish Market, your source for some say  “the best fish on the island”. Fridays are a treat, the locals and visitors flock to this location for fresh fish often prepared before your eyes, the portions are hefty and the cost certainly reasonable.  While you wine and dine live local music stage performances will keep you entertained and the cost of entry – FREE.  Eat, sample the local rum and then dance away the remainder of the night to your heart’s content to local tunes, oldies, salsa, take your pick there is something there for all.
