Taylor Bay

We took an excursion to Chalk Sound for the day and visited Taylor Bay.  It’s a secluded beach with white powdery sand and beautiful blue waters.  You can walk about a quarter mile out with the water only going up to your knees.  Definetly bring your snorkels, there are fish, coral and maybe even a turtle or two that you will find  further out.  We also, well mostly our brother, decided to make a spa day out of our visit too.  Taylor bay has great “clay sand” to exfoliate your skin.  The Caribbean version of the Dead Sea according to our brother!  This beach is a little tricky to find and don’t expect a parking lot.  After making  a left on Ocean Point Drive, we turned into a residential area.  Not seeing any signs we asked a local and he directed us to a path that looked like it didn’t go anywhere.  Well it did – and once we walked down the path and turned the bend we were all in pure awe.  Taylor Bay is a MUST when visiting Turks & Caicos.

Bugaloo’s

Located in Five Cays Settlement, this beach side restaurant was the perfect lunch spot! Great views, friendly people, fantastic food and drinks!  It was the first place on our trip where we ordered conch.  Conch Salad, Coconut Conch Fritters, Conch Sandwich –  –  – we were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed it! It wasn’t our last time ordering it, that’s for sure!  The Provo Punch was a great drink for this hot and humid afternoon – it’s a blended drink with tropical fruit.  If you really want to make it a good, good lunch – – ask for a topper!!!  After lunch we headed down to the beach and picked up two conches to take back home.  The conch diver showed us the art in catching conch and removing the mollusk out of the shell.  It was amazing to see these beautiful shells just lying on the beach.  Won’t find these in California, that’s for sure!!!
