The crystalline turquoise waters, endless white sand beaches and ideal year-round temperatures of the Turks and Caicos make Blue Haven Resort and Marina the perfect destination for any boater. The marina is located on the northeastern tip of the main island, Providenciales, just 575 miles south of Miami. In May 2013, the marina — an IGY destination — opened, and that December the entire resort was completed, providing an unforgettable stay for all guests.
Tie up your vessel at the marina complex and receive access to all the resort’s amenities. The marina offers 78 slips for both shortterm and long-term dockage, accommodating vessels up to 220 feet. Don’t worry about entering the channel at low tide, because it never dips below 81/2 feet! The marina has on-site customs and immigration services and provides guests with water and power utilities, both gasoline and diesel fuel (bulk fuel discounts are offered), a pump-out facility, laundry services and concierge services to help guests create a preferential package upon arrival. Crew facilities include showers, changing rooms and office space.
When staying at the marina, be sure to take advantage of the resort’s excellent amenities, including a breathtaking infinityedge pool with swim-up bar and a 24/7 gym for fitness fanatics. Ready for more relaxation? Soak up the sun’s rays on the beach, or play a game of beach volleyball, horseshoes, or billiards. Water-sports enthusiasts can enjoy almost endless excursions and activities, including scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding and kite boarding. Cruise around the Turks and Caicos’ 40 cays, where the world’s third-largest barrier reef is perfect for diving. For die-hard anglers, there is plenty of bonefishing along the Caicos Banks. Or head out on a deep-sea fishing excursion. Just off shore there are terrific opportunities to catch marlin, yellowfin tuna, mahi mahi, snapper and grouper. If you’re looking for an inland adventure, explore the secluded beaches and trails of Turks and Caicos by horseback.
The on-site Fire & Ice Restaurant has a sophisticated, laid-back atmosphere and a fantastic menu of Caribbean specialties. It is open for dinner and Sunday brunch. Unwind with a nightcap at the stylish fire pits, and don’t miss the weekly Cuban pig roast. The other on-site restaurant — Salt Bar & Grill is just the spot for sipping afternoon cocktails. The resort’s other top-notch amenities include a spa and the Market Cafe, which offers freshly baked breads, pastries, pizzas, sandwiches and salads.
Blue Haven Resort and Marina is a must visit destination for your islands bucket list. Marina manager Adam Foster said, “The resort and marina are ideally located close to all the region’s amenities with the reef and ocean right on our door step. It would be hard to find another location so close to the action on, in or under the pristine waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands.”
