And Tuscany is a three minute drive from Coco Van, so ENJOY!
It’s the kind of place that would be at home in some hip enclave of Austin or Portland, Williamsburg or L.A. But at the same time, it’s totally at home in the Caribbean.
Cocovan, adjacent to the venerable Coco Bistro In Providenciales, opened earlier this year and is centered around a restored old Airstream camper, a food truck transformed into a leafy, romantic but casual restaurant on the edge of Grace Bay Road.
I have a simple rule for judging whether a restaurant is truly great. You have to say “wow” at least once during the meal. The wows are in no short supply here. Cocovan is a triumph, and it’s the coolest new restaurant in the Caribbean this year.

And do visit Cocovan's website!
The Tuscany is Proud to be #1 on TripAdvisor!
According to one of our readers, Grace Bay is "the most beautiful beach in the world," featuring crystal-clear waters and soft white sand. You can snorkel at the nearby barrier reef, or float calmly in the ocean thanks to minimal waves. The island has sunny skies roughly 319 days a year, giving you the perfect antidote to winter weather.
