A Short Tale About Providenciales, Turks & Caicos

By on March 7, 2020

That water.

It is the first thing everyone who has been to Turks & Caicos says. They look at you with giant eyes. They shake their head slowly. “But that water.”

Yeah. That water. It is a thing. Because for all of the reasons to like Turks & Caicos — the pristine white sand, the surprisingly decent food scene, the blissed out island vibes — it’s the endless, crystal clear water that really gets you. It is the color of a robin’s egg or a box from Tiffany. It looks rare. In addition, it looks expensive.

Which is funny because if there is another thing that everyone says about providenciales Turks & Caicos while slowly shaking their head, it is this: The place is expensive. One has to pay $12 for barth expensive a toothbrush. You have to give $20 for fish tacos expensive. In addition, the vibe matches. There are a lot of Calypso tunics and Missoni bikinis. You know that sort of thing.

Therefore, if you are looking for a Robinson Crusoe situation, you should probably go to Nicaragua instead. If you do end up in Turks & Caicos, everyone will understand.

Where To Stay

The best places to stay in turtle cove providenciales. Here I will discuss about few best places for your staying. Let us have a quick look on that.

The Palms

Usually the thought of a resort gives me hives but that is kind of the thing on T&C and, anyway, The Palms’ is charming. It has a thoughtful layout with winding pathways surrounded by lush landscaping, and it somehow feels a lot more intimate and low-key than I’d usually expect from a 72-suite hotels. The beachfront and location right on Grace Bay providenciales are among the island’s best, and the spa, with its adorable treatment cabanas surrounding a tranquil reflecting pool, is one of the most tranquil I’ve ever experienced. (Get a thai massage and be sure to use the steam room and outdoor showers afterwards — heaven.) Though my suite was super comfy and huge with a balcony facing the ocean, I mostly spent my time lounging on the covered beach beds below, taking breaks only to pretend I was a mermaid in the water or practicing my stand up paddle board technique with one of the hotel’s many free boards. The hotel also has an amazing infinity pool, too, but I liked the ocean so much I never used it.

Amanyara

On an island full of fancy places, Amanyara might be the fanciest of them all. However, not in a stuffy way: The vibe is super modern and minimalist — all clean lines, warm wood and airy spaces. It is the kind of place you’d want to hole up in with an illicit lover or maybe take a vow of silence and do a full-on detox. Either way, you would be totally set: The beach is secluded, many of the villas have private pools, and the hotel offers an in-depth wellness program that includes pilates, yoga, treatments, and organic food from its on-site hydroponic farm. On isla providenciales turk y caicos you can spend some awesome time in this island.

Where To Eat/Drink

For the best foods and drinks, you can go in these places.

Da Conch Shack

Da Conch Shack is my favorite restaurant in best restaurant turks-caicos  Providenciales because it’s one of the few that feels local and quintessentially Caribbean. As the name suggests, conch is the star of the show here and offered in nearly every manner imaginable: battered and fried, raw in ceviche, or mashed into fritters. The brightly painted restaurant is mostly open-air with most of the wooden picnic tables nestled into the sand and offering views of the water. Besides conch, rum punch is the thing to order and it is sneakily strong, so watch out. Alternatively, do not. You are on vacation.

Coco Bistro

Coco Bistro is an easy, no-fail go-to with lots of tiki torches flickering gently in a palm-filled garden and a menu of tasty, locally tinged fine-dining classics: caesar salad, seared salmon with beurre noisette, ahi tuna tataki, conch ravioli, and shrimp satay.

Coyaba

Though the dinner menu is filled with tasty-looking, Carribean-tinged dishes — tuna sashimi crusted in pink peppercorns and sesame seeds with coconut and mango, slow-braised guava and tamarind babyback ribs, tandoori marinated mahi mahi, jerk wellington chicken — ridiculously delicious desserts like petite pot au chocolat and powder sugar-topped ice cream make this adorable, twinkle-light filled restaurant a must. On turtle cove marina providenciales island most of the people come here to enjoy their times.

Where To Play

For passing your time and playing some moment, you can visit these spots.

Surf

While taking a yoga class at The Palms, the incredibly cool and fit instructor casually mentioned to me that occasionally there’s a surfable break off the barrier reef that surrounds Providenciales (turks e caicos). It is a helluva paddle out (about a mile), but if there’s a northern wind the spot to be is Northwest Point. There is also apparently sometimes a small beach break at Leeward Beach. Bring your own board or rent a SUP.

 Snorkel 

Leeward Reef is an excellent reef teeming with psychedelic-looking fish, so you guaranteed to see some stuff. Many outfits offer snorkel, scuba, and boating excursions and I am sure they’re all great. I liked the one I did with Caicos Dream Tours: The catamaran made a stop on a deserted turtle-cove providenciales island where we slid down a water slide into the ocean.
