The Boutique at Wymara is tucked away next to the resort’s spa and houses a luxurious selection of beach and resort wear, including the Okaicos swim and lifestyle collection.

The Palms Turks and Caicos plays host to The Palms Courtyard Shops. These thoughtfully curated stores provide an upscale shopping experience that includes an art gallery, gourmet mini-market, and the Palm Shop, which offers a collection of gifts and branded apparel.

Brands such as Bogosse, Velvet, and Taj adorn the airy boutique where service is attentive and transports one to what feels like a private shopping experience.
