Turks and Caicos Nut Allergy-Friendly Travel Itinerary


Hi! My name is Anjali Nair and I’m 18 years old. I live in Virginia and I am allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, legumes, and shrimp. This summer, my family and I took a 5 day vacation to the stunning Turks and Caicos! Besides the beautiful beaches, sunsets, and crystal clear waters, the islands have so much to offer, whether it’s delicious meals at ocean side restaurants, beach barbecues with live music and dancing, or refreshing frozen treats on a hot summer day. We stayed at West Bay Club and ate at some great places including Sharkbite, Mango Reef, Mr. Groupers, and Turkberry. You can find all of my reviews on my page on the Spokin app @allergyanj or follow @foodallergyincproj on Instagram for more food-related content and allergy advice!

Hotel: West Bay Club

I stayed at West Bay Club with my family on our 5 day vacation to Turks and Caicos. Everyone who works there is super welcoming and they were great when dealing with my food allergies. I had the July 4th dinner special at the hotel! They were accommodating about my allergies and made sure my dishes were nut and sesame-free. They serve complimentary breakfast: a standard buffet with eggs, meat, and fruits. I also had some delicious desserts!

Treat: West Bay Club

When my family and I arrived at the hotel, we were greeted with welcome drinks. I got a tasty fruit punch drink made of orange juice and pineapple juice.

Dinner: West Bay Club

The hotel had a July 4th special, so I got a hot dog with crispy bacon jack cheese lemon fries! I told them all of my allergies and they made sure everything was safe to eat. It was delicious and I felt comfortable and safe eating there.


Breakfast: West Bay Club

The hotel served complimentary breakfast every morning, so I had a plate of eggs, potatoes, sausage, pancakes, watermelon, cantaloupe, and grapes.

Lunch: West Bay Club

For lunch I had the ahi tuna (cucumber, tuna, mango, rice, avocado, tomatoes). They made sure to accommodate my allergy and make the dish without any sesame.

Dinner: Sharkbite

For dinner, my family and I went to Sharkbite! This restaurant has a wide variety of fish options. I got jerk chicken wings with a garden salad and a virgin strawberry daiquiri. They were pretty good about food allergies, and overall I had a good dining experience here!

Treat: Turkberry

I got a cup of vanilla cream frozen yogurt, which is super refreshing on a hot day in Turks and Caicos! They made sure there wasn’t any cross contamination with other flavors. I also liked the Lime and Forest Berries flavors.


Supermarket: Graceway IGA

My family and I stopped by to pick up some groceries for lunches and snacks during the vacation, and they had everything we needed! It’s pretty much just a typical grocery store and has any food you might need during your stay at Turks and Caicos.

Dinner: Mango Reef

My family and I ate here for dinner and I ordered the vegetable pasta. Our waitress was super friendly and accommodating of allergies, and overall it was a safe and yummy dining experience! The food was delicious and super filling.

Treat: West Bay Club

I had some refreshing strawberry ice cream on the beach at the hotel. It was especially tasty given how hot it was that day!


Breakfast: West Bay Club

For breakfast, I had the complimentary breakfast at the hotel again. I got bacon, eggs, and some fruit.

Treat: Turkberry

My family and I liked Turkberry so much that we went back for a little snack in the middle of the day! I got the vanilla cream.

Dinner: Mr. Grouper’s

Every Thursday, Mr. Grouper’s has an event called the Fish Fry where they serve food, along with a DJ and a dance party! I got the chicken sandwich and they made sure it didn’t have any of my allergies. Overall, it was a great dining experience and a super fun evening.

Day 5

Airport: Providenciales International Airport (PLS)

We flew out of the PLS airport on our way back from Turks and Caicos to the United States. Before our flight, we were sitting in an area that had a few places to get food, including a Turkberry stand, Nell’s Gift Shop (which had some snacks for the flight), and other food places that offered chicken tenders, pizza, and sandwiches.
