7-Days Well Spent in Turks and Caicos
If you’ve chosen Turks and Caicos as your next vacation destination, you are in for a real treat. With so much to see and do on this tropical archipelago, we recommend spending at least seven days with us to make the most of the trip.
To help you plan your dream Caribbean vacation in Turks and Caicos, here is a rundown of the must-do activities to inspire you to explore this beautiful destination.
Get Acquainted With The Caribbean Seas Your Way
Naturally, we know it is the draw of our crystalline seas that attracts visitors to Turks and Caicos. There are several ways to get acquainted with these warm Caribbean waters. Whether you choose to board a catamaran and snorkel the third-largest barrier reef in the world, enjoy a romantic sunset cruise, or take the ferry out to North and Middle Caicos for a day of exploring, you will discover famous beaches, awe-inspiring wetlands, caves, and old Caribbean charm. If you are feeling adventurous, why not learn to dive? After all, where better to take a course than here at one of the Caribbean’s best dive spots. There are several dive operations here to help visitors get to grips with the fundamentals and provide an underwater experience of a lifetime.
Rent a Car and Explore The Islands At Your Own Pace
Now, if you prefer keeping your feet firmly on dry land, renting a car and doing a self-guided island tour is the way to go. Chances are, if you are staying at centrally located Ports of Call, you won’t need a car for the whole week, but having access to a set of wheels for a day or two will allow you to access parts of the island that are a little further afield.
Indulge In Local Delicacies – The Fish Fry
There is no doubt you’ll work up an appetite with all this exploration. When it comes to gastronomic delights, you are in for a real treat here in Turks and Caicos. Naturally, being on an island will mean that seafood is the order of the day here. Every Thursday, the Island Fish Fry, which takes place from 5.30 pm – 9 pm, is a must for locals and tourists alike. Here, you’ll get to sample freshly caught fried fish and other local favorites, including lobster, conch salad, and crab n’ rice. Not only will you get to feast on these Caribbean delights, but you’ll be treated to local entertainment from bands to folkloric storytelling and maypole plaiting; there is so much fun to be had!
Dining Options Galore
When it comes to the rest of the week, you’ll also be spoiled for choice with over 30 restaurants within walking distance of Ports of Call Resort. However, if you are looking to stay closer to home, we also have three wonderful dining options on-site. From our innovative café and deli, Tribe, to Cielo which serves up a delicious Mediterranean menu to casual dining at Skull Rock Mexican Catina, there is something for everyone here. And when it comes to satisfying that sweet tooth, head on down to Giggles, our on-site ice cream and candy bar, or SweetFix, our on-site dessert and coffee shop to get your fix. While you are at Ports of Call Resort, be sure to join our team for Tuesday’s Manager’s Social hour from 6-7 pm, where you can ‘Get to know the Management and faces behind the resort’, hear our top tips for exploring the island all while enjoying a complimentary drink and hors d’oeuvres.
Unwind At Grace Bay
Finally, we know our guests come to Turks and Caicos for a little rest and relaxation too. Thankfully, there is no better spot for this than Grace Bay. You can spend as much time basking under the sun with a cocktail in hand on a chaise long while overlooking the turquoise waters. If you get a little restless, feel free to enjoy one of our complimentary paddle boards or kayaks for a little bit of an adventure!
