There are a few really popular restaurants in Turks and Caicos that get booked up early and require reservations. We are not going to name any names in this article, but we have mentioned some of them before. If you want to make sure you have reservations for that must visit restaurant, you probably need to start calling or sending emails a few weeks before your trip directly to that restaurant. This will help you get in to all the restaurants of your choosing on your vacation.
We have reviewed a lot of YouTube videos about Turks and Caicos and there are a lot of good ones out there. This one is so good it is worthy of its own post. We have never seen anything like it.
For the third year in a row, Grace Bay was named the #2 ranked beach in the world by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards. And why not? Grace Bay is one of the longest and most beautiful beaches in the world by any measure.
Let’s be really clear. It is very likely that everything is more expensive on Turks and Caicos than it is wherever you are from especially if you are from the United States. Grocery store prices are no exception. The prices are expensive not because every restaurant and grocery store on the island are trying to price gouge you, it is because everything has to be shipped in to these tiny islands. The shipping is also in relatively small amounts for these grocery stores which drives the price up even more.
Anyone who has had the pleasure to visit or is planning to visit Turks and Caicos knows the number one attraction is the beach. After the beach, the number two attraction has to be the food and dining. There are plenty of choices for dining after your day in the sun from casual to fine dining and from on the beach to near the shops. Almost all of the options will have an open-air island vibe that is exactly what you would expect on an island vacation.
According to the Turks and Caicos Visitors Bureau, the Turks and Caicos islands are some of the safest islands in the Caribbean. And the crime rates in Turks and Caicos are in line with major cities like New York and Miami. They go on to point out that being safe compared to high crime islands of the Bahamas and the Jamaica is not necessarily a good thing.
If you are looking for a fun island event on Provo, look no further than the Thursday night fish fry in Bight Park. This night is full of local food, local entertainment, great music, and local vendors. Not only will you be able to fill up on some of the best fresh food and drink on the island, you can take in some local culture as well.
If you have visited other islands in the Caribbean or in the Bahamas you may have noticed cruise ships traveling in and out of the main port on those islands. If you are on Grace Bay Beach or anywhere on Providenciales (Provo), your chances of seeing a cruise ship are pretty slim. This is good for a number of reasons.
