A local favourite on the beach, sway away the magic hours with sand between your toes and their famous rum punch in hand but beware – the punch will knock you dead! Serving Caribbean flavours, be sure to try their blackened fish tacos and pick up a conch seashell souvenir on your way out.Blue Hills Rd, Providenciales
Bradley Theodore’s colourful and otherworldly paintings take inspiration from his hometown of Turks and Caicos. Having worked with the likes of Alexander McQueen and Kanye West, he has caricaturized famous faces such as Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour on murals in cities like NYC, Hong Kong, LA and Paris. He now lives in NYC but will soon open a studio/gallery in Turks. Be sure to look this up before you hit the island!
