The Turks & Caicos Collection’s Alexandra Resort launches new oceanfront eatery

Asú On the Beach Receives Rave Reviews Following November 1 Opening

PROVIDENCIALES, TURKS & CAICOS - The Turks & Caicos Collection’s all-suites beachfront escape, the Alexandra Resort, recently completed a property-upgrades program and has added a new dining spot, Asú on the Beach, as of November 1.

Asú serves delicious, casual Caribbean and popular international fare. The restaurant is helmed by Executive Chef Alexander Powell, who hails from the east coast of the United States and who has a résumé that boasts such work as training chefs for famed restauranteur Jean-Georges Vongerichten and overseeing kitchens of five star properties. Restaurant patrons are sure to swoon at his culinary prowess.

Asú, meaning “sunset” in Taino, the language of the Arawak Indians who resided in the Turks and Caicos centuries ago, fittingly describes this beachfront restaurant, which flaunts a prime sunset view of the Caribbean Sea.

Cruise the Contours, See the Sights Along BC's Cross-Country Tracks

In BC, slipping into skinny skis promises a self-propelled sojourn, embraced by Mother Nature's quiet calm. Here follows a few local tracks worthy of exploration.

Adventurers can click in at Mount Washington Alpine Resort, where more than 688 hectares (1,700 acres) of cruise-worthy trails weave through old-growth forest. The Vancouver Island destination's Raven Lodge and Nordic Centre draw enthusiasts to Strathcona Provincial Park, a striking expanse that showcases 55 kilometres (34 miles) of machine-groomed cross-country trails through open meadows and unspoiled forest. Alternatively, enthusiasts can take in the landscape at a different pace, and slide into snowshoes for a satisfying crunch into the woods.

Crashing waves and wildlife wonders. Cool exploration and small town festivals. It's winter season in British Columbia.

Break the Waves (and Brace for Storms)

While skis and snowboards are primed for the winter season, boards of a different sort make an appearance on Vancouver Island's west coast, namely November through March when waves are at their peak. Indeed, cooler temperatures mark the province's annual surf season, a time when swells climb as high as six metres (20 feet) before crashing against the coastline. To best maneuver the boundless blue, adventurers can suit up with local pros, including Tofino's female-focused Surf Sister and Long Beach Lodge Resort's skilled crew, the latter boasting a Surf Club complete with a hot pool, sauna, showers, change rooms and cappuccinos by the fire. For a full coastal experience, Wya Point, further south in Ucluelet, promises First Nations-led surf lessons that offer historical insight into the traditional landscape.;;
