The Top 7 Places to Grab Drinks in the Turks & Caicos
The time has arrived: You’re on vacation in the Turks & Caicos. Time to hit the town and experience the Caribbean nightlife. We’re talking about oceanfront views, stunning sunsets, island-inspired tapas and refreshing cocktails — and you can enjoy it all with your toes in the sand.
Even the highly regarded Fodor’s recommends Magnolia, not only as a place to dine, but also to watch an out-of-this-world sunset. Situated high on a bluff overlooking the Turtle Cove Marina, Magnolia offers an impressive list of specialty wines and various cocktails. Try some dessert with your appellation of choice: the Banoffee Pie (bananas and toffee on a graham cracker crust with whipped cream, YUM) and the vanilla-roasted strawberries drowned in port-reduction wine are not to be missed.
2. Bay Bistro
Bay Bistro is located at the Sibonne Beach Hotel, just steps away from the gentle waves of Grace Bay Beach. Indeed, Bay Bistro offers some of the island’s best panoramic ocean views because of its close proximity to the water, making it the ultimate location to enjoy your choice of sweet cocktails, vintage rums and other fine spirits. Watch the sun set in dramatic fashion, as the sky changes from hues of orchid to lavender to deep mauves to violet and, finally, to deep cobalt. Palm trees, tiki torches and lush greenery complete the scene, all with a gentle sea breeze. This is island nightlife at its best.
3. Infiniti Bar
Hip and vanguard, the Infiniti Bar at the award-winning luxury resort Grace Bay Club is the place to be on a Friday night.
