Turks & Caicos Travel Guide

Turks and Caicos, what a dream! I have always heard about the glory of Turks & Caicos, witnessing friends return from the island paradise with perfect tans and tales of fresh seafood at beachside restaurants, snorkeling in crystal clear water, and long days lounging in the sun. I am so so lucky I got to give this island a go first hand with Summer Salt! I had the best time getting out of the New York City cold and getting some much needed Vitamin D. And not to mention it's only 3 1/2 hours from NYC! Ummmm I'm going every weekend in the winter, see ya! Check out some of my favorite things to do, places to stay, and restaurants to try.

Where to stay: The Shore Club
The Shore Club is a stunning beach side resort with 4 pools, 3 restaurants, and a white sandy beach that stretches on as far as the eye can see. They also had a spa, tennis court, gym, a swim up pool bar, and free surf boards and snorkel equipment. So we pretty much had no reason to ever leave the resort haha, they had it all! On the days we did want to leave and check out other parts of the island they had a free shuttle service that takes you to their two sister resorts which are closer to the town center of Grace Bay. It was super convenient and let us explore so much of the island!

Where to eat: Mr. Groupers

We made the short, 10 minute journey to Mr. Groupers from our hotel after having it recommended to us from so many different people - from locals to regular Turks & Caicos vacationers. It did not disappoint! It had such a great local feel and the food was fantastic. We tried both the Grouper (of course we had to) and the grilled Mahi, and both were so so good! I definitely recommend hitting this up at least once on your trip for some authentic island food. 

Where to eat: Da Conch Shack

Another authentic spot to try some classic Turks & Caicos Conch! Definitely worth checking out as it is right on the beach and a great spot to take some photos with some of the cute conch shells on display. We did try some conch and didn't love it .. but it's definitely worth a try! And no fear, they have plenty of other delicious options on the menu, I loved my fish tacos! 

What to do: hit the beaches

We loved spending time on Long Bay Beach, which is the beach attached to The Shore Club. It's quiet and secluded and had great beach side service. It is also super fun to use the paddle boards and snorkels offered by the hotel to get some time in the ocean. We also had a great time mixing it up and taking the free shuttle from the Shore Club to The Sands, a sister hotel to The Shore Club. The beaches here were also AMAZING! The pool was also so incredible and their beachside restaurant, Hemingway's, was a delicious spot to take a lunch break.

What to do: Ocean time

We had fun trying out the paddle boards and snorkels, and just swimming around in the beautiful clear water was so much fun. With that being said there were other awesome activities that we didn't have time to try out during our stay! Number one would have been kite surfing. There is a kite surfing spot right on the beach just two minutes away from The Shore Club and it looked insane! It was super cool to watch the kite surfers out there all day and I highly recommend giving it a try if you want to add a little adventure to your beach trip.

Another activity we would have loved to do was horse back riding in the the ocean. Yeah, you heard that right, horseback riding on the beach in the shallow ocean water! It looked so amazing, but on the day we wanted to do it we got hit with a rain/wind storm (super uncommon for Turks & Caicos btw, so don't worry about bad weather on your trip haha). Check out Provo Ponies to give it a go.

The Best Island Getaway

We had the most incredible time in Turks & Caicos with Summer Salt. It was the perfect island getaway from this nasty NYC cold and I could see us going back again and again. Ahhh I'm already missing that sunshine and beautiful blue ocean.
