Infiniti Bar

Infiniti Bar

Overview: What better way to enjoy the world’s most incredible beach than from the Caribbean’s longest bar? Set in Provo’s Grace Bay Club, the Infiniti Bar is a fabulous place for cocktails, tapas, and tropical indulgence alongside the establishment’s celebrated restaurant. Regular live music helps set the tone here.

Insider Tip: Among several standout dishes at Infiniti, don’t miss the grilled octopus or the Key Lime Pie.

What We Love: Well, for starters, the 90-foot span of the Infiniti Bar itself. Cast against the sand-and-sea tableau of world-famous Grace Bay, this is a heck of a place to kick back and relax. We also appreciate the availability of s’mores — how many places in TCI can you get s’mores? — and cigars.

Location: Grace Bay Circle Rd., Grace Bay, TKCA 1ZZ, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Jack’s Shack

Jack’s Shack

Overview: The headquarters for rum-fueled fun on laidback Grand Turk, Jack’s Shack has been welcoming cruisegoers to its tiki-style “mojito hut” since 2007. Refreshingly super-casual compared to ritzier Turks & Caicos beach clubs, Jack’s offers all manner of libations, bar eats, and superb sunset viewing. And it’s just a 10-minute walk north along the beachfront from the Grand Turk Cruise Center.

Insider Tip: You can submit an online form or print out a coupon from the Jack’s Shack website to receive a free welcome rum shot upon your arrival.

What We Love: The utterly chill vibe. Also, the ready access to plush sands and calm waters enhanced by complimentary loungers and rentable umbrellas, plus beach toys, floats, snorkeling gear, and other essentials.

Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl

Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl

Overview: Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl provides one of the best settings for seaside food and drink in Provo, with seating not only on the beach under coconut palms but also in the nearshore surf. 

Beachwear is very much acceptable dress at Bugaloo’s, which originally opened in 1994 on North Caicos but now occupies a prime spot on Provo’s Five Cays Beach.

The Bugaloo’s menu includes, yes, plenty of conch delicacies, including conch fritters, conch salad, scorched conch, and the much-loved Coconut Cracked Conch. 

You’ll also find grilled and fried fish, shrimp, in-season Caribbean lobster, pub-grub staples such as burgers, wings and peas-and-rice, plantain chips, and other tasty sides.

Insider Tip: Consider calling Bugaloo’s to find out when local reggae legend Stanley Roots — a regular performer here — is next playing.

What We Love: The tables set in the shallows along the beach, offering “feet-in-water” dining. 

Location: Five Cays Road, TKCA 1ZZ, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Phone Number: +1 649 941 3863

Mango Reef

Mango Reef

Overview: Wine and dine overlooking the Turtle Cove Marina on Provo at Mango Reef, among the island’s top-draw eateries and bars. 

A fine fusion menu — when available, be sure to try the spiny lobster — anchors proceedings, but Mango Reef’s bar is also a great choice simply for drinks and dancing.

Insider Tip: You can actually arrive here by boat, tying up at the Mango Reef dock for some afternoon or evening fun.

What We Love: Watching the boats come in and out of the marina while nursing a refreshing beverage. Also, the all-around excellent service.

Location: Turtle Cove Marina, TKCA 1ZZ, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Ocean Club Cabana Bar & Grill

Ocean Club Cabana Bar & Grill

Overview: Nestled in the Ocean Club East resort, the Cabana Bar & Grill offers another great perch along the fabled Grace Bay Beach. 

Pink and white umbrellas shade your al fresco pleasures at Cabana, which offers amazing fare, excellent service, and regular live music.

Open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Cabana Bar & Grill is there to supply you with blissful beachfront vibes whenever you need a full-on dose. 

Free parking is available courtesy of the Ocean Club.

Insider Tip: Give the fish and/or lobster tacos a try!

Overview: Long-running Hemingway’s on the Beach has been a fixture of Grace Bay since 1998. Located in The Sands resort, Hemingway’s offers crowd-pleasing eats and drinks both inside and out on the beachfront deck. 

The eatery serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.

Service (many Hemingway’s staff members have been here for the long haul) is exceptional, and the ambience hits all the right marks. 

Insider Tip: Clear sightlines out over Grace Bay make Hemingway’s a fine spot to settle in for one of those peerless Provo sunsets.

What We Love: The tasty seafood (from grilled fresh-catch to fish-and-chips and conch fritters) and the live music (offered four days a week). Also, the bell is available to ring if you catch sight of the finned celebrity JoJo, the dolphin.

Phone Number: +1 649 941 8408

The Deck

The Deck

Overview: Another standout Turks & Caicos beach bar on Grace Bay, The Deck, provides a shady open-air hangout in the Seven Stars resort. The menu ranges from ceviche and Turks Head beer-battered fish to vegetarian masala. 

And plenty of ice-cold beer, fine wine, rum and other spirits are on hand for toasting a spectacular Grace Bay Beach sunset.

Insider Tip: Teetotalers (and anyone taking a break from the hard stuff) will appreciate the zesty mocktails poured at The Deck. 

What We Love: The beach barbecue buffets offered on Sundays at The Deck, complete with live tunes.

Location: Seven Stars Resort, Grace Bay, TKCA 1ZZ, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Amanyara Beach Club

Amanyara Beach Club

Overview: A more secluded, serene sort of Turks & Caicos beach bar experience awaits at the all-inclusive Amanyara in Northwest Point, one of the Caribbean’s standout resorts. 

The Beach Club here extends the wining-and-dining experience of the resort restaurant and circular bar to oceanfront decks overlooking the protected waters of Northwest Point Marine National Park.

Insider Tip: The Open Fire Ceviche is definitely a menu highlight here. (So is the Baba Rum Cake, for that matter.) And if the timing works out, one of the cooking demos or rum tastings offered here occasionally is worth the experience.

What We Love: The stirring ocean views featuring Providenciales's comparatively remote, unspoiled west coast. You’re just a stone’s throw from Malcolm’s Road Beach, one of the best dive spots in TCI.

Location: Northwest Point, Wheeland Settlement, TKCA 1ZZ, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Phone Number: +1 649 941 8133

Da Conch Shack

Da Conch Shack

Overview: Set along Blue Hills Beach on the north shore of Providenciales, Da Conch Shack is one of the best-known Turks & Caicos beach bars. Indeed, this lively joint has been rated (by such authorities as the BBC and New York Times) among the world’s best beachside watering holes.

Few pleasures compare to sinking your feet into the sand at one of the beach picnic tables at the Shack, serenaded by the breeze in the overhead coconut palms.


Insider Tip: A highlight of many visits here is the chance to see conches de-shelled and cleaned right on the beach. 

What We Love: The conch-dominated menu, from conch chowder and fritters to conch salad. You can also get other delicious seafood here, not to mention steak, ribs, vegetarian dishes, and more. 

Also, the beach-party vibes are created by a regular roster of live music, both DJs and bands.

Location: Blue Hills Rd., TKCA 1ZZ, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Phone Number: +1 649 946 8877

Somewhere Café & Lounge

Somewhere Café & Lounge

Overview: Breezy vibes and great local live music define Somewhere Café & Lounge, attached to the Coral Gardens resort on Grace Bay. The open-air, two-story setup serves up tropical R&R and vistas out over one of the world’s highest-rated beaches.

A strong Tex-Mex influence makes Somewhere Café & Lounge one of the best beach bars in Turks & Caicos in terms of menu.


Insider Tip: Some grub and a celebratory beverage at Somewhere Café & Lounge are great ways to follow up on an exploration of nearby Bight Reef, one of the top beachfront snorkeling sites in the islands.

What We Love: Besides the Tex-Mex flavors, the busy calendar of live music courtesy of solo performers, bands, and DJs. (Music is most consistently offered on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.)

WIMCO’s Insider Tips 

  • Arrive early to claim a good spot: The best loungers and spots on the beach tend to fill up quickly, especially at the more popular beach clubs. Get there when it opens or shortly after to secure a prime location.
  • Bring cash for any extra purchases: While some clubs accept credit cards, having cash on hand means you will always have a way to pay for any additional food, drinks, services, etc.
  • Consider beach club hopping: We recommend spending a day at multiple beach clubs to experience their different vibes and amenities.
