One of my FAVORITE destinations to experience is Turks and Caicos. Turks & Caicos is filled with world class resorts, spas, restaurants and the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Just a quick non-stop flight from Newark Liberty Airport and/or John F. Kennedy International Airport makes it possible to travel to this special island if you want extended weekend escape or a week or two away to relax.
WHERE TO STAY? The Palms and The Shore Club are my TOP PICKS! Both of these 5 star resorts are managed by the Hartling Group. Guests can “Stay and Play” at both resorts, easily with a complimentary shuttle, to give you the ability to enjoy the #1 Awarded Beach Beach in the World, Grace Bay, and the NEWEST upcoming BEST Beach, Long Bay!
Located in the prime location of Grace Bay Beach.
Awarded Virtuoso BEST of the BEST Spa Worldwide.
TOP level service from employees fully trained with years of experience! Butler service is a perk with top level suites. Also, available as an “add-on” to any room category.
You will find guests enjoying the pool at The Palms from sunrise to sunset. Beautifully designed including a swim up bar!
The Shore Club
The NEWEST resort in Turks and Caicos!
Located on Long Bay which is extremely private as this is the ONLY resort in this location!

Dine Around the Island: We LOVE the restaurants at The Palms and The Shore Club but I highly recommend also leaving the resorts and experiencing the local restaurants. A few of my favorites include…
Coco Bistro: Set admist the largest palm grove in Turks and Caicos. MUST reserve at least 2 months prior to your travel dates!
Da Conch Shack: Casual feet in the sand and picnic table type of dining experience! Great spot for lunch or dinner! Best beach party and live music takes place here every Wednesday
Fish Fry: The Tourism Board hosts a local Fish Fry in Children’s Park on Thursday evenings. Along with a band, it’s fun to go to each stand to sample true local food. After the Fish Fry, I enjoy going to Danny Bouys for some late night karaoke.
Somewhere Café: Beachfront, open air dining. Tex Mex inspired menu. Live Music Wednesday, Friday and Sunday!
