Found a little inland and between the Turtle Cove and Grace Bay areas, The Bight is a small settlement that’s mainly residential. Small shops and a few villas can also be found here. The Bight was one of three original settlements on Providenciales.
There’s no clear evidence, but it’s likely that The Bight was the last of the three old settlements (the other two being Blue Hills and Five Cays) on Providenciales to take hold. Some time after the establishment of the Cheshire Hall Plantation cotton plantation, this “village” formed and supported a small subsistence farming and fishing community.
Ruins and buildings in the area suggest that the modern settlement of The Bight may have shifted further east and more inland than the original site.
Kingston is a small area in the eastern Bight region. The main Bight Road terminates here. In the past, a sandy track continued on to Grace Bay, but vegetation has taken over and the enclave is formed around a dead end turn around.
