Best Restaurants for Specials Occasions
Turks and Caicos is a special occasion in itself but that doesn't mean there isn't ample opportunity to celebrate concentrated special occasions throughout your stay. At any time of year, day or night, Providenciales has a good party for you. It's what we do on the islands: we celebrate life. We live in the present moment and we make the most of that time with Caribbean vibe and good times for all. Everyone is welcome to get down and "mash sand" at beach parties with bonfires, dance contests, live music with dinner, karaoke, or the glow worm rum punch cruise at sunset. The music is always groovy, from traditional island rake n' scrape, steel drums, and calypso to rock, pop and reggae. There's also an outstanding theatre company on the islands that are periodically performing some great shows, so check to see if there's anything happening during your vacation. So when you're thinking about where to go for that special occasion (whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or just a celebration of the day) consider these places. Then go have some fun.

Somewhere... Café & Lounge is an inviting and laid-back place that may be a reason in itself to return to the islands. It's the quintessential Caribbean barefoot beach bar where the mood is casual and the Mexican fare is super fresh and top notch.

Go to the rooftop and ask if there's a band playing that night/day. And try the mojito!
