New Year’s Eve in Turks and Caicos offers tons of fun and festivities for all ages to enjoy together! 

For Catholic locals, New Year’s Eve in Turks and Caicos kicks of with Old Year’s Night: an island tradition that includes church services and the ringing of church bells for good luck and blessings in the new year. 

Local restaurants throughout Providenciales host their own New Year’s Eve parties with live music, food and drink specials, beach bonfires, dancing in the sand and more. 

Ricky’s on the Beach (otherwise known as Flamingo Cafe) is known for hosting the island’s best New Year’s Eve countdown and bonfire beach party, complete with a live DJ and dancing in the sand. 

Finally, at the stroke of midnight, visitors and locals alike, gather together to enjoy a fabulous fireworks display, put on by many resorts along Grace Bay Beach. The fireworks can be seen from either end of the island, and Ricky’s on the beach makes a great vantage point.
