Want to have a holiday in the Caribbean you won’t soon forget? Head to the Turks and Caicos, as their amazing beaches, local restaurants, and places to stay that will have you planning a return trip before you even head home.

Below, we’ll detail how you can have the ultimate Turks and Caicos experience.

STAY IN STYLE:

The beginnings of the ultimate holiday experience in the Turks and Caicos starts by booking a stay at one of many amazing Turks and Caicos villas.

While there are many amazing resorts scattered throughout this archipelago, the quality of these private accommodations make them your best accommodation option overall.

Firstly, these villas are often situated away from the main tourist drags, creating a quiet environment where you can truly relax and unwind.

If they are located close to where the action is, they are set aside solely for your use, unlike resorts and hotels, where you are exposed to the noise that other guests make on their holiday.

Many of these accommodations have privileged views of some of the most scenic places in the Turks and Caicos; for example, Villa Seacliff overlooks Chalk Sound, easily one of the most stunning natural landscapes in this tiny island nation.

Other amenities outside these mini-mansions include infinity pools, BBQ grills, and even a private beach bar (Tip of the Tail Villa), giving you the potential to create some amazing memories.

Within the villas, modern furnishings, state-of-the-art electronics, full-stocked kitchens, and fun touches like billiards and other gaming tables are all par for the course.

AWESOME THINGS TO SEE AND DO:

While laying around at the villa can help you unwind from the stress of your everyday life, you will eventually get cabin fever at some point.

Thankfully, there are plenty of things to see and do throughout the Turks and Caicos. Start by renting a car so you can visit the best beaches that the T&C has to offer.

From world-famous Grace Bay to the off-the-beaten-track charm of Malcolm Bay Beach (located at the end of a bumpy dirt road), there is a spot out there which will appeal to your tastes.

If spending time on the beach isn’t enough, there are a number of boat tours which will take you out for a relaxing day on the water. The views from offshore are just as (if not more) stunning than those on land, so don’t forget to take your waterproof camera.

Beneath the waves, there are many colourful reefs which will delight avid snorkelers and divers. With scores of tropical fish calling these beautiful spots home, a trip to the Turks and Caicos could be the perfect occasion to try these sports if you never have before.

Back on land, experience the culture of the Turks and Caicos by attending the Thursday Fish Fry. Held in Bight Park every Thursday between 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm, this event was conceived as a way to bring locals and tourists together.

With plenty of fried and breaded grouper, snapper and other local fish to go around and junkanoo music filling the air, you’ll have the chance to connect with the people who call this island home year-round.

Finally, those who love golf will have a chance to get in a few rounds at the Provo golf course. Situated in the heart of the island, it is a moderately challenging course with plenty of lush greenery, water hazards, and beach views on certain holes.

WHERE TO EAT:

If you are looking to grab a quick lunch on the way to the beach, hit up Turks Kebab, as its take on Mediterranean food has built a devoted following of locals, expats, and repeat visitors. With incredible donairs, kebabs, and hummus, we think you’ll be back here many more times before heading home.

Want to go out for a relaxing breakfast at some point during your stay? Make plans to sit down for brunch at Shay Cafe & Lounge. With amazing crepes, croissants, french toast, and eggs benedict, there are plenty of options for those with varying tastes.

For a dinner you’ll never forget, make reservations at Coco Bistro. With tables sitting beneath a canopy of palm fronds, you’ll have the perfect environment to enjoy a meal that will be one of the best you have ever had on holiday. From shrimp satays to rack of lamb, you will have plenty of entrees to drool over and savour.

WHERE TO PARTY:

If you end up staying on Grand Turk and are looking for the reliability of an established chain, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville will give you the after-dark experience you are looking for.

Boasting a swim up bar, a flow rider where you can practice your surfing technique, and a party atmosphere which is boosted by periodic arrivals of cruise passengers, you’ll be sure to have a good time.

Over on Providenciales, bars and pubs rule over nightclubs, with Irish options like Danny Buoys and hotel bars with hot nightly specials being favorites among repeat visitors to the Turks and Caicos.

However, those determined to have a wild night out will want to head to Club Med, where non-residents can buy a dinner and dance pass to enjoy their hedonistic environment alongside their guests.
