Ocean Club West

Ocean Club West

I’m so excited! I just booked a December vacation for my husband and I at Ocean Club West. I did some research but what can you all tell us about the ocean, beach, surrounding restaurant names and night time entertainment around the resort. How much is a taxi from the airport and how long is the drive? We can’t wait!! Thank you!

The beach and ocean are stunning, there’s a reason always ranked worlds best by everyone

Quite a few restaurants around, Solana, le Bouchon, Hemingway’s, Bay Bistro, tons around salt mills regent village area

Rent a car at least a couple of days—eat at Da Conch Shack, Bugaloos both have live music (during the day mostly) Bay Bistro, Coco Bistro, Baci (a locals favorite)

Make sure to do an excursion with Island Vibes or Caicos Dream Tours, it will be your favorite day

Snorkel Coral Gardens

Explore other stunning beaches, Leeward, Pelican, sapodilla and Taylor bays.

Not a huge nightlife kind of place. 6-8 go to Fish Fry on Thursday nights next to the beach. Have dinner at a beach bbq Danny Bouys karaoke Thursday’s is fun. Pass at Club Med. pretty much it.

We've stayed at OCW many times, love the resort. Can't beat the location. Close to many shops, restaurants and the Graceway Gourmet food store. It's on the widest section of beach on Grace Bay and never seems crowded with 3 rows of loungers.


You can use the free shuttle up to the sister resort Ocean Club. It's also a pretty easy walk on the beach during the day. Up there are two of our favorite casual beachfront restaurant/bars, the Cabana and Flamingo. Have lunch and continue walking east up to Leeward, just stunning on a nice day. Flamingo is known for their curried grouper and rum punch.

Our one must go restaurant on every trip is Caicos Cafe located right across the street from OCW. I agree with blamona on renting a car and checking out Bugaloos and da Conch Shack for lunch.

If you like beer, we enjoyed the Turks Head tasting room at the brewery. Very good local beer and much cheaper than your typical American brands on the island.

Thank you all for your information. Is the Fish Fry on the beach in front of Ocean Club West? I have been hearing about it in multiple places so I don't want to miss it. Thank you!

The Fish Fry is in the parking lot at the Bight Children's Park, next to the Gansevoort.

We have stayed at OCW 3 times and always used Majestic for our airport taxi. Our last trip was last year and the rate was $16 per person. Not a long trip at all, maybe 15 min.

Do you have to book Majestic prior to arrival, or n you just catch them waiting at the airport?
