A beach destination that sizzles

In the May/June 2013 issue of New Canaan-Darien magazine, The Somerset on Grace Bay was listed among the three “beach destinations (that) sizzle.” The article raves about the world-famous Grace Bay beach with “powdery sand that extends for twelve miles along turquoise waters.” The Somerset was recognized as being “a prime location for a family getaway” blending “comforts of villa living with the amenities of a larger resort.” Another perk for a family getaway at The Somerset is our kids’ club dinner, giving parents an opportunity for a romantic meal together. If you’re in Darien, New Canaan or Rowayton, Connecticut, pick up a copy on local newsstands or read the article online here.

One of the world’s best walking beaches

We all know that Grace Bay is a magical place. With 12 miles of pristine white sand and calm water protected by coral reefs, there is plenty of space to enjoy the warm Turks and Caicos sun and endless watersport activities. Time and time again, Grace Bay beach has been named one of the world’s best beaches. This time, Carib Journal did a roundup of the best walking beaches and — you guessed it — Grace Bay made the list! As No. 1 on the list of World’s Best Walking Beaches, Carib Journal says, The comfortably wide Grace Bay Beach is a stunner.
