This page refers to the shopping plaza. For the accommodation, see
Ports of Call Resort.
Ports of Call is a shopping and retail complex in the heart of the
Grace Bay tourism district. Complete with a touch of pirate-themed scenery, this plaza is within walking distance of many
resorts and accommodations.
Ports of Call is also adjacent to a few other
shopping plazas as well, including
La Petite Place,
Caicos Café Plaza,
Ocean Club West Plaza, and the
Graceway Gourmet supermarket.
As is generally the case throughout the Turks and Caicos, there’s usually enough free parking surrounding Ports of Call.
The outdoor courtyard also features seating, and is a pleasant place to relax.
One of the most-photographed examples of art in the country is the three dimensional
Turks and Caicos map on the wall of the central building in Ports of Call.
Created by local artist Pamela Leach in 1996, this artwork beautifully depicts the signature
ocean shades of turquoise and blue in the Turks and Caicos.
When photographing the map, avoid shadows by visiting either in the morning (map will be in the shade) or later in the afternoon (map will have full sunlight).
