Grace Bay Beach at The Palms Resort
World-famous Grace Bay Beach is consistently excellent, yet the coast does vary a bit, with changes in water depth, clarity, beach width, and calmness.
The beach fronting The Palms is located on the western side of Grace Bay, and as it’s past the subtle Forbes Point peninsula at Point Grace resort, the area is typically somewhat sheltered from the usual eastern trade winds, and consequently is often calm near shore.
The accommodation density near The Palms is higher than at other stretches of Grace Bay, and the expansive Beaches Turks and Caicos all-inclusive complex is nearby, so the beach is often one of the more crowded parts of Grace Bay.
Restaurants and Bars at The Palms
The Palms boasts two restaurants and two bars, with casual and formal ambiances.
Parallel 23 is a popular gourmet restaurant, with both al fresco seating on the terrace and indoor seating in an elegant dining room, as well as more secluded spaces for events and private dining.
Parallel 23 serves international and Caribbean fusion dishes, and maintains an extensive wine list. Reservations are recommended.
72°West offers beachside and poolside dining, and is a great place for an outdoor bite. This spot is open for both lunch and dinner, and has a kid’s menu.
