Turks and Caicos Beer, Rum and Other Cool Drinks

Staying hydrated is an important part of a Turks and Caicos vacation.  Whether you are simply relaxing on the beach or actively enjoying the island lifestyle, the sun and heat can quickly leave you with a need to quench your thirst.

If you normally start your day with a walk on the beach, or a workout at the gym, head to Market at Blue Haven Resort and Marina after your exercise regimen for a delicious Allegro coffee, cappucino or tea.  A combination café and upscale grocery store, Market also carries an excellent selection of juices and soft drinks. Market features a lovely outdoor patio by the canal, where you can relax with a beverage, check your email and watch the local boat traffic.

If you enjoy smoothies, visit Melt, a smoothie, ice cream and juice bar, and coffee shop, located in Regent Village.  The venue is equally entertaining; try on costumes, ride a toy horse, or even sip a glass of champagne on the shaded terrace.

When it is time to try a cocktail on the beach, the Sherminator at Beach House is not to be missed.  Named after the much loved beach attendant, Sherman, at Beach House, the refreshing rum punch cocktail can be enjoyed at the resort’s Beach Deck overlooking Grace Bay Beach.  It’s also a great spot to enjoy lunch during the week.  On Sundays, visit the Beach Deck for happy hour specials from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm, and then stay for the authentic beach barbecue, which is hosted from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm every Sunday during the summer.

Rum punch is best enjoyed when made with Bambarra rum, the official “spirit” of the Turks and Caicos.  You can also purchase a pre-mixed rum punch in a bottle at the grocery store if you prefer to enjoy a cocktail in the comfort of your own suite.  Rum sampling is offered at Bambarra’s retail store, FOTTAC, in Regent Village.

Another local favourite is Turks Head beer.  It is the most affordably priced Turks and Caicos beer sold on the island and readily available at most bars and restaurants.

At the end of the day, take time out to visit the intimate bar at Beach House’s Kitchen 218.  “Sly”, the bartender, specializes in making personalized drinks, or choose a beverage from the restaurant’s extensive cocktail list.  The wine list is equally impressive and varied.  Kitchen 218 is open every day except dinner service on Thursday.

Caribbean weddings at Beach House

Destination weddings have become an increasingly popular choice for couples in recent years. And who can fault them for choosing to host a tropical wedding, when the turquoise Caribbean Sea serves as a backdrop for a picture perfect – and very romantic – setting.

Add in lovely weather and a relaxed Caribbean atmosphere, and betrothed couples are destined to have a magical Caribbean wedding ceremony.  The only real choice couples will need to make is the island itself.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are often recognized as being one of the most romantic and exclusive Caribbean destinations for weddings.  When it comes to convenience, the Turks & Caicos often stand out as the preferred location for Caribbean weddings.  If you are planning an island wedding, consider Providenciales.   Here are five reasons why you should.

  1. Ease of access.  The Turks and Caicos are located just 575 miles southeast of Miami.  Direct flights less than four hours in length are available year round from New York City, Newark, Charlotte, Miami, Toronto and several other major cities.  Once on Providenciales most resorts, including our own Beach House Turks & Caicos, are no more than a 15-minute drive from the airport.
  2. English is the official language. Have convenience and peace of mind by receiving wedding services from English speaking coordinators, enjoy having your wedding ceremony conducted in English, and receive a marriage license written in English.
  3. Gorgeous weather.  Turks and Caicos have one of the best climates in the Caribbean.  Low precipitation and humidity levels (compared to other island destinations) reduce the risk of weather-related interruptions to your outdoor ceremony.
  4. Affordable and easy marriage license arrangements.  Unlike some other Caribbean islands, couples only need to be in Turks and Caicos for only 48 hours before applying for a marriage license.  The fee is just $250 U.S. (Fees are subject to change, so please verify this rate before booking your wedding). Please note that the Registrar’s Office that grants marriage licenses is only open from Monday to Friday, and that any documents (i.e. passports, birth certificates, etc.) which are not in English must be translated and notarized before presenting to the Registrar’s Office.
  5. Combine ceremony and honeymoon location. Turks and Caicos is such a beautiful destination, there is no need to go anywhere else on your honeymoon.

Aside from the convenience of getting married here, it’s important to find the right resort for your special day.  Beach House Turks & Caicos is the first and only authentic boutique hotel on Grace Bay.  With just 21 suites, the resort is ideally suited to a property wide buy-out, so you can enjoy a truly intimate setting with privacy to celebrate with friends and family.  The resort offers superlative dining at Kitchen 218, a lovely swimming pool, Elevate Spa, complimentary services that include Wi-Fi, non-motorized water sports and use of pedal bikes, and the services of an on-site wedding planner.
