Grace Bay and its beach, crown jewel of Turks and Caicos, is home to some of the best rated hotels in the world. Grace Bay's soft white sands and glistening blue ocean make the perfect backdrop for some serious pampering. Snorkelling, diving, and fishing are just some of the things you can do on its beach to while away the balmy hours - but for those wanting a sedentary getaway, Grace Bay also has several spas and some quality restaurants on and nearby the beach.

Grace Bay area; West Indies Resort?

My husband and I rented a second floor condo thru owner(ocean front bldg. 123) at the West Indies Resort, Grace Bay. Has anyone stayed at this resort? Also, we are planning to rent a car; any recommendations what to see and where to go on the island. We have a full kitchen, but plan on eating out often. Can you recommend any reasonable places to dine. We'll be there the first two weeks in May, 2010. Any information & advice would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!

We just came back from the Royal West Indies, You will have a great time! The people are very courteous, the hotel is nice and it is at a great location. For restaurants I recommend you go to a Hemmingways, Calicos Jaicks , Horse Eye Jacks, Da Conck Shack and Bay Bistro. Also, the rest. at the hotel Mango Reef is great!!. For a bit more upscale COCO Bistro is great although more $$. Enjoy!!

Great suggestions, thanks. Which beach did you think was the best?

Come to turks and support our tourism industry!

Can you hire sunbeds and umbrellas on the the beach?

It's behind a large resort so it's very likely that you can.

I feel Grand Island-Lake Superior has far greater qualities

A 12 mile beach of soft sand looking onto the bay.
