Holiday Happenings in Turks and Caicos

As most of North America endures a deep freeze from November thru February, Turks and Caicos remains idealistic with sunny skies and temperatures between 80-85 degrees. These summery conditions make Coral Gardens a great place to spend Christmas and/or New Years.  Grace Bay loves the holidays and hosts a variety of fun events for you and your family.  Allow us to explain:


December 17th: The Christmas in Blue Hills event kicks off the holiday season featuring maypole dancing, storytelling, performances by local musicians while the colors and creativity of the Turks and Caicos islands are on display.



December 26th: While known as Boxing Day around the world, Providenciales hosts the Maskanoo Parade and Street Fair.  In its 4thyear Maskanoo is a celebration that is inspired by the rituals African slaves brought to the Caribbean during the 1700’s and 1800’s. You will see brilliantly colored costumes, glittering masks, festive music and local delicacies.  Following the parade is a street fair held between Saltmills Plaza and the Regent Grand shopping area.  Browse the works of local artists while bands entertain on the main stage.


December 28th: The fun continues with the post-Christmas Beach Party event in Grace Bay. The day and evening sunset will be filled with authentic foods, kayak races and live music all set on the most beautiful beach in the world.  This is a fun event for the whole family and a great time to get to know the locals.


December 31st: Throughout the year Turks and Caicos reflects the conservative influences from the British kingdom, but on New Year’s Eve the entire island lets their hair down to celebrate the passing year.  Nearly every restaurant and resort will host a festive dinner, DJ dancing and flowing cocktails.  Around 11pm Grace Bay beach will be ablaze with numerous bonfires where revelers gather to watch the fireworks displays.  Ricky’s Flamingo Café hosts the largest NYE celebration which is geared for the 20’s and 30’s crowd.  While Coral Gardens and Somewhere Café host a very family-friendly party where children, parents and grandparents dance the night away to a local DJ.


We hope this overview of the holidays in Turks and Caicos has inspired you to visit us at Coral Gardens during this festive season.  The holiday season kicks off our busiest time of the year, so make your travel plans now and maybe you’ll see Santa Claus on the beach at Grace Bay.

Fantastic time in Turks and Caicos ..we were 2 couples for a week at this wonderful condo with a million dollar view . Waking up and having breakfast with that wonderful view was the best. Having the beach right outside your back door was wonderful. Best location . Most relaxing trip ever! Everyone at Coral Gardens made our stay great. We had everything we needed in the condo.  Thanks for a great stay. Looking forward to visiting again.

My husband and I have traveled to many Caribbean Islands and definitely have ranked Turks and Caicos as our favorite!!! Our room at Coral Gardens was very nice and had beautiful views! The condo was also very spacious and was equipped with everything we needed. The whole entire staff was incredible and so eager to make our vacation so relaxing and fun! We had the most fun just spending time every day on the beach snorkeling, swimming and meeting so many nice people from all over the world! Somewhere Café which is right on the property was awesome! The service, food and staff was wonderful!!!

Lovely Spacious Condo in a Idyllic Grace Bay Location

The Coral Gardens has the good fortune to be located directly on the best snorkeling reef in Grace Bay, and that central location on Grace Bay is just the beginning. Grace Bay is world renowned for it’s beauty for many good reasons. The warm, crystalline blue waters, the calm surf, the pristine white sands make Grace Bay a “must do” experience. In order to enjoy your stay the accommodations need to be comfortable and relaxing. This Coral Gardens condo has that in spades. The entire facility and beach area was immaculately maintained. The spacious condo was very tastefully decorated, well furnished, and equipped with every necessary item for vacation. The floor plan allowed this one bedroom to live much larger than you would expect.

The property was perfect! The view from room was amazing, overlooking the ocean. Everyone that worked at Corel Gardens was extremely nice and helpful! The location was great. We walked everywhere! Somewhere Cafe was convenient and the food and drinks were really good. The beach was fantastic!! The ocean was gorgeous. We loved having the reef right there. We went snorkeling each day and saw some amazing sea creatures. We will definitely recommend this place! And hope to be back!
