Honor the memory of Papa Hemingway's love of island living with a meal at this popular beachfront restaurant, located at the Sands, along Grace Bay Road, in Providenciales. From the open-air deck, you can enjoy a great view of the ocean and a laid-back island atmosphere for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Dishes range from filet mignon to local lobster to award-winning conch chowder. Finish things off with a slice of key lime pie or a scoop of deep-fried ice cream dusted with cinnamon and sugar.

Watch the Sunset, and Ring for JoJo the Dolphin
Hemingway's Restaurant has the best sunset views of one of the world's most beautiful beaches, Grace Bay, from a pier-like patio. The restaurant at the Sands at Grace Bay Hotel makes blended-just-right Pina Coladas topped with an extra dollop of rum. Sip and keep watch for the resident dolphin JoJo, who has been patrolling the turquoise waters off this picture-perfect crescent of sand for more than a decade – there's even a bell to ring if you see him, although who knows if it's the same dolphin. After you get tipsy, order dinner. In addition to conch, the restaurant is known for steak and fresh-caught fish cooked only in olive oil. At lunch, the fish tacos are my favorite dish. There is live music twice a week.
