One week. One glorious week full of beautiful weather, gorgeous beach with turkoise waters, delicious food, sun and fun.
Where? Turks & Caicos. A British Overseas Territory consisting of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands, two groups of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago.
More specifically, we stayed at Club Med Turkoise on Grace Bay, Providenciales (Caicos Islands – home of most local residents) – one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – ranked #2 on Trip Advisor!
As you might remember from our previous Club Med experience in Bali, we are huge fans of the Club Med all inclusive experience. The location, the activities, the food, and the people you meet are some of the best reasons to choose Club Med for a fun-filled, stress free holiday.
We were supposed to fly from Ottawa to Charlotte then onwards to Providenciales. Unfortunately, our first flight was delayed so we got re-routed from Ottawa to Toronto to Miami and finally Providenciales. Due to the delay, we didn’t arrive until late evening of March 5th as opposed to midday. A whole day, wasted! Thanks a lot United Airways!
Morning came and all our troubles went away. What a beautiful, amazing place!
For this trip, we bought an underwater camera that was also perfect for vlogging. I invite you to watch our video and check out our adventures in Turks & Caicos!
It is easy to see why Grace Bay is one of the prettiest beaches in the world. In addition, Club Med has the widest, cleanest, and nicest spread of beach on Grace Bay – definitely a winner!
Crystal clear, turquoise waters at the perfect temperature. We spent many hours of every day in the calm peaceful ocean.
The perfect summary to our holiday:
Club Med Turkoise has the usual array of included activities such as tennis, basketball, and trapeze. What won our hearts? All the water sports!
Sailing, kayaking, snorkelling, and paddle boarding… we tried to as many water activities in a day as possible.
Snorkelling was twice a day and great! We even brought our own snorkels and masks but their provided equipment is pretty decent as well!
So many things to do!
Sailing quickly became a new favourite hobby. And we didn’t capsize once!
The food was also great! The main buffet restaurant, Grace Bay Restaurant, was where we ate most of our meals. A repeating breakfast and lunch spread throughout the week but enough variety to keep us happy. For dinner, there was a different theme every night. We love food and there is definitely enough choices and something for everyone. Our favourite? Their famous white chocolate bread! Yum!
The social aspect of Club Med is one of its main appeals. Most dining tables fit 6 people so you will always meet new people at meals (if not during the day). We met a variety of interesting and wonderful people!
They also have a reservation-only a la carte restaurant, Lucayan. We lined up to secure a table but were incredibly disappointed. The atmosphere is nice and it was really good to have a private meal with just the two of us, however, the food simply did not measure up to our expectations.
Lastly, they have Sharkie’s Bar – one of our favourite spots to hang out in the afternoon. Simple menu with the best chicken burgers and fries. Food, drinks and fun live entertainment – what more do you want?
Perfect beach for nice long walks 🙂
Gorgeous sunrises and beautiful sunsets… every day!
Sunrise from our room!
Enjoyed numerous sunsets on the beach
Did I mention the local beer, Turks Head, is pretty tasty? 😛
Last night on Turks and Caicos and one year anniversary of our engagement! How tanned we were by the end of our vacation!
Couldn’t get enough and look forward to the opportunity to return! Thanks for an amazing time Club Med Turkoise!
