ABOUT TURKS & CAICOS

The Turks & Caicos Islands are a vacation dream come true! White sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, and tropical tranquility, what's not to love? The journey to paradise is just a quick two hour flight from Miami to Providenciales airport. 

The highlight of Turks & Caicos is the 12-mile Grace Bay beach, which is lined with hotels and upscale homes. Weather in Providenciales is beautiful year round, ranging anywhere from mid 70's to mid 80's and the locals are friendly and easy going. There are plenty of activities like the world's best diving, boat tours, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and of course, relaxing on the beach :-)

MY EXPERIENCE

In May of 2017, I traveled to Grace Bay Club with Foray Collective and had the most incredible experience! It was my first time in Turks & Caicos and I was really excited to explore this beachy new destination with my friends; Ruslana GeeJourdan Sloane, Rosa Crespo

After a long day of traveling from LA, we checked into our luxurious room in "The Estate" building, which had a large balcony overlooking the ocean and main pool. We watched the sunset and had dinner at one of the "Private Villa Collection" beachfront homes owned by Grace Bay Club. The modern villa was breathtaking and had amazing atmosphere to kick off the trip!

The next day, we headed to Bugaloo's Conch Shack to have lunch, dance to local music, and explore the conch studded island. We spent the entire day here hanging out (the photo opps with the colorful houses were just too good). After a day of sun, we headed to Grace Bay Club's Anani Spa for massages and facials. My facialist was really educated in the products she was using and my skin felt heavenly afterwards! I highly recommend going to the spa if you visit Grace Bay.

On our third day, we took a charter boat out to sea to check out some other islands. The sand was SO white and fluffy and the water was the prettiest shade of turquoise I have ever seen! We were also lucky enough to see a few dolphins and stingrays along the way. Once we wrapped up the boat tour, lunch was served local style at STIX on the beach. The remainder of the day was spent relaxing and swimming in the ocean. Dinner was set up beautifully on the beach by the Grace Bay Club team where we had delicious food, great conversation, and lots of wine to wrap up our final night.
