What started out as every seafood lovers secret place in Alligator pond, Manchester, is now an internationally known ‘great place to eat’.
Unlike the tourist-oriented coasts in the northern part of the country, Alligator Pond’s shoreline is as much about work as play; here fishermen launch their boats to catch some of the island’s best-regarded fish while women conduct the wholesale business of the catch. Weather-worn cookshops and bars line the sand’s edge, supplying food staples such as curried goat and Red Stripe beer.
