Good Vibes and High Tides in Turks and Caicos

November 28, 2017

Guest Contributor Blogger: Kathryn Marks

A new place, new faces, exploration…there is something about travel that gets me so excited! Now, don’t get me wrong, the process of getting where you are going isn’t always easy, but it is almost always worth it. Who doesn’t love getting their passport stamped!?

A trip is much more than getting away, it’s a chance to meet new people, see a new place and just take it all in. There is planning, budgeting and packing which are key parts to make and trip a success. We must ask ourselves, where do we want to go, how much time will we spend there and what activities do we want to do when we reach our destination? Now, I can set a step-by-step guide on how to plan a trip, but for now I’m going to share a recent trip with you and focus on some highlights.

Our trip took us to the Turks & Caicos Islands, a British Oversees Territory with a population of 31,458 of whom 23,769 live on Providenciales, the part of the islands that we would be visiting.

From the white sandy beaches and the crystal-clear water, I knew this was going to be an amazing week.

The days were spent lounging by the pool and walking the beach looking for conch shells or snorkeling, while the nights were spent dining out at some of the best restaurants on the Island.

We dined our first night at Magnolia Wine Bar and Restaurant and it surely didn’t disappoint. Starting off with tuna poke, calamari and a mushroom and goat cheese strudel left our taste buds wanting more.

For the main course, I decided on a fresh local lobster tail with drawn butter-seasonal vegetables and jasmine rice. This dish was so fresh and my mouth watered for every bite. The entire menu did not disappoint as the 11 other guests at the table had a wide variety of foods. You can view the entire menu here.

Another night we had dinner at Vie Veneto a small Italian establishment in Grace Bay. With champagne in our glasses we opted for the main course, with only four of us dining this time the main course was an easy choice. Costolette DI agnello Siciliana (Grilled Lamb Chops flavored with Thyme Oil, in a Sicilian caponata). This is dish was amazing! The lamb meat was so tender and full of flavor and all four of us agreed this was the dish to recommend. With no appetizers this night, dessert was in the horizon. We chose a Tortina al Cioccolato (chocolate lava cake with molten dark chocolate, chili pepper & mint ice cream. This was so amazing and delectable my mouth is watering just writing about it. You can view entire menu here.

Of course, there is more than eating to do on this island and one of the best things I can suggest is renting a scooter and touring the entire (5 mile) island. With training under our belts, we were ready to go and please remember safety first and foremost (always wear a helmet). With quite a few places to rent a scooter on the island, you are in for a treat. With the open air and coastline in view, we were off. The ride along the coast was amazing and unfortunately showed the the destruction of Hurricane Irma, but the beauty of the community coming together to clean up the island.

So many great things happened on this journey to Turks and Caicos and if you have a chance to go I would strongly recommend it, the people are extremely friendly and the community is strong.

Where are some of your favorite places to travel? Have you ever been to Turks & Caicos? Please share your thoughts.
