rift is a casual beachfront restaurant located at the luxury West Bay Club resort on the scenic Bight Beach in central Providenciales. The restaurant features a beautiful setting among the dunes and sea oats at the beach, and the seating flows out onto the sand, making the location excellent for watching the sunset. West Bay Club is managed by the Grace Bay Club group of resorts, and the culinary experience at Drift parallels that at the counterpart resorts.
The restaurant isn’t just for resort guests and welcomes walk-ins from the beach. Reservations are not typically required, especially for lunch. Free parking is available onsite at the resort.
Drift serves a bar and grill menu that is varied with an international and gourmet twist.
For light dishes and appetizers, choose from classics such as Caesar and green salads, tuna bowls, crispy wings, and conch fritters.
Lunch mains include pizzas, chicken and seafood tacos, sandwiches and wraps, burgers, and jerk chicken.
Dinner entrées range from grilled local lobster tail, roasted chicken, tenderloin steak, lasagna, BBQ and more.
The Bight Beach is located directly to the west of world-famous Grace Bay Beach, and offers much the same soft white sand and crystal-clear ocean water. One difference between the two coasts is that the Bight Beach has verdant seagrass beds off the coast a bit, which supports a different menagerie of wildlife than is seen at the sandy ocean floor in the Grace Bay area. The Bight Beach is often less crowded and a little calmer as well.
Several resorts, hotels, and villas are located within walking distance of the West Bay Club and Drift, including Wymara Resort, Coral Gardens Resort, The Windsong, and Beaches Turks and Caicos. The snorkeling site of the Bight Reef, and the Children’s Park beach access are nearby as well.
