Trip Report: A Birthday Celebration in Turks & Caicos

by Michael Bowers

Jimmy’s Dive Bar. This could be a fun place if the island were busy. Cold Beer, sports on TV and a casual atmosphere. We had lunch there one day and were the only customers.

Froggies on da Beach. Casual, colorful and a great conch salad with conch right from the sea. They also run ATV tours from the location and reportedly have live music at night.

Coco Bistro. The setting under the lighted palm trees is casual and fun. One must try the conch and the “conch 2 ways” appetizer certainly did not disappoint

Beach House. This was simply the best meal we had. Having been open for only a couple of months, the menu is varied, creative and the team takes pride in what they do. The ambience is very South Beach with music reminiscent of a Buddha Bar. The lobster sabayon and yellow tail snapper were delicious. This restaurant has become the talk of the town and it stands up to its merit!

Amanyara. What an adventure! Visitors must prepare themselves (and their cars) for the long and bumpy ride it takes to get here. If visiting, call ahead as you are stopped at the guard gate and have to identify yourself. Once you arrive, the ambience is an idyllic one of relaxation and peacefulness. While not busy the night we visited, one senses that even when fully occupied this place has the tendency to be quiet and respectful. We felt we should whisper throughout our dining experience and the loudest it got was when the staff sung Happy Birthday to me tableside. The menu has a Thai influence and the vegetable and lobster curries were delicious. Prior to dinner, we took a property tour. It was most informative and opened our eyes to 3 different style accommodations; including a 5 bedroom villa….this was luxury at its finest.

The Vix Restaurant and bar in the Regent Village (Grace Bay). We stopped in here for a late après dinner drink. The Vix has a nice ambience and a great location.

In terms of groceries, we found 2 major supermarkets: the Graceway IGA and the Graceway Gourmet. The Gourmet was in the Grace Bay area and was smaller with more organic products. In either case, be prepared for a bit of sticker shock!

Turks & Caicos is a beach and boat destination. The island is great for snorkeling, diving, fishing and trips to the outer islands. Our vacation was relaxing and enjoyable – full of activities and fine dining. We would certainly return to this island for another stay.
